Flowers and Foliage

  Hi all,

                 It's the 1st October and time for a new challenge over at

Sparkles Christmas Challenge.

 Melanie has chosen the theme of:

'Christmas flowers/foliage'

Believe it or not this card didn't take a long time to make. I remembered I'd got some beautiful stamps with my recent Simply Cards and Papercraft magazine and wow the quality of the stamps are great. I grabbed 2 pieces of card and got to work after being inspired by a card I saw in the magazine. Watercolouring suits these stamps and I had such fun creating this card.

We'd love to see you over at Sparkles Christmas Challenge 

as all the design team have created some inspiring creations to give you a great start to your Christmas crafting.

I haven't done alot this month due to being laid up with my naughty ankles. Then I got bit by something and reacted badly so a trip to the hospital for antibiotics and a week of ice packs and my leg elevated.... It's been a strange month. I have managed to meet up with a couple of friends and they've come to me which helped. Nice to get crafting yesterday though.

Hope you're all well and enjoying the weather when it's good to us.

Take care and as always Thank you for popping by to see me.

Big Hugs Debbie xxx

Hi Debs

Great use of your cover gift to make this fabulous Christmas card!

I love the sentiment very much and as you say the stamps lend themselves to watercolouring perfectly.

Sorry to read that you have been having problems with your ankles. I hope that they have improved for you now.

Many thanks for your lovely message on my blog, you are very kind.

Love Jules xx
