Away from Christmas Card

It's so nice browsing through all the blogs and finding such beautiful cards, there are so many talented bloggers out there that I am spending a lot of time just browsing and commenting.  This blogging is getting addictive, any spare minute and my hand reach for my IPad to play as a result my cardmaking is suffering. So now I am limiting myself to one hour each day to blog, lets see how long that lasts.

While browsing I downloaded a few digi sentiments which I played around with yesterday and hopefully will be using soon. I am terrible I see something and I want to try it, not later, NOW, and end up trying it out for ages.

I picked a card inspired by Julia Watts blog and it was so easy to do, although I did not have exact die I improvised and loved making it. I am waiting delivery of some dies to attempt a card from the Creative Expressions Project Book.

8 x 8 white card
Burgundy and white card from my collection
 Embossing Folder - Spellbinders M-Bossabilities Garden Lattice A4
Cosmic Shimmer Mica Flakes - Luna Silver for round the edge of card
Spellbinders Picot Edge Circles, Persian Motifs, Bauble Blossoms Two (for flowers)
 LOTV Happy Birthday Sentiment stamp
Creative Expressions Burgundy Ribbon and Dazzlers
Distressed Ink and pearls.
Well as is said that's all for now folks. I wait with baited breath for all your comments.  I often wish  bloggers who view the cards would leave a wee comment instead of just looking, it makes me wonder what they think.
Take care and wrap up warm.

  3. Hi Wilma,
    what a superb card. Love the design and colours. Those luna flakes look amazing on the edge of the card. I have seen them before, but they look sooooooo good on your card.
    Have a wonderful crafty day.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  6. Good Morning Wilma,
    What a great card, Love the colour and the layout, the luna flakes just give it that opulent touch. Really a LOVELY card.
    I agree, sometimes the time just whizzes past when you start looking at other blogs, so much to see and inspire us.
    Have a great day today.

  7. Good Morning Wilma, stunning card, the dies and the colours are gorgeous. I too am becoming addicted and spend far too much time on the PC. I will have to limit my time browsing as well. Hope you don't get soaked today,enjoy your walk with your wee dogs, kate x

  8. Gorgeous care Wilma a such pretty colours...


  9. What a fabulous card Wilma. I just love it. Hope your dies arrive soon. Hugs Rita xx

  10. This is beautiful Wilma. The colours are lovely and the embossing and the flowers are gorgeous.

    I know what you mean about spending time blogging and not enough time creating. I've managed to buy 3 secret Santa presents and a wedding present this morning but no creating so far. I should go and photograph the cards I made yesterday. Not sure though cos the rain is horrendous just now and it's a bit dark. Terrible since it's not even 2 o'clock.

    I agree about bloggers leaving comments. I get lots of visitors but very few comments. Doesn't do anything for your confidence. It actually makes me think my cards must be really bad if people don't comment.

  12. hi Wilma, this is a beautiful card, love the colours you have used, must get my flakes out..

  13. Have you found the elusive A4 embossing folder yet? I see you have put it to good use. Great use of dies and shading on this card too Wilma.
    Happy will turn up when you are least expecting it to.
    Hugs Erika.

    1. This is the last time I used it, making this card, have not found it yet, fingers crossed it will emerge front it's hiding place.
