A Time For Giving

Hi, another Christmas card today. This time I have used an LOTV die cut topper.

Click on image to enlarge picture

This is a terrible picture but I can't seem to do any better with it I'm afraid.

Background papers are HOTP , the sentiment is Little Claire Designs Christmas Sentiments, Spellbinders Lacy Circles and Lacy Squares and Wild Orchid Crafts poinsettias.  I used Glamour Dust on the bunny's outfit and Diamond Dust on the roof  of the bird table. It looks better in real life, but seems a bit dull to me. Ah well, you can't win them all. After I took the picture I realised I had intended to colour the ribbons on the sentiment circle which I have now done and they are red, which lifts that corner a bit.

Well, have a good day - and keep warm!!!

Love from Christine xx

Hallo Christine

Wat heb je prachtige kaarten gemaakt.
Ik schrijf nu maar in het Nederlands want Engels gaat mij niet zo best af, ik hoop dat je het kan vertalen.
Leuk dat we van dezelfde schrijvers houden Patricia Cornwell heb ik ook gelezen maar James Patterson niet maar die wil ik binnenkort ook gaan lezen.
Fijn weekend.

Groetjes Karla

Good Morning Christine. You card looks lovely, but I know what you mean about the sparkle not showing up too well. Beautiful image too. Enjoy your Day. Hugs Rita xx

The LOTV toppers are great aren't they, I think I've used all mine now but they make a nice change from colouring. Lovely card Christine.

Hi Christine,
what a very lovely card. I love that sentiment tag, and also the design. Don't you just hate it when a card looks fab, but doesn't show it in your photo. I have had quite a few like that myself.
Have a wonderful crafty day.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
