JAI sketch on the side...& a catch up!

Good morning!

It's so long since I blogged that the set up has changed - not sure I can remember what to do!
Anyway, the JAI sketch challenge this week has motivated me to pop in to blog world for a bit. I turned the sketch on it's side so I could fit in stamps from my fave set at the moment "Happy Hour". A great set for Christmas & the rest of the year. I used gumball green & cherry cobbler & the snow festival dsp.
Here's the card:
Whilst I'm actually blogging I may as well share a couple of other creations. The first is one of the rosette Christmas trees that are popular lately. I purchased Jenny Moors tutorial which is great...and I stayed up into the wee hours to finish it. The rosettes started out a bit fiddly & then became quite addictive, I couldn't put it down until I'd folded & threaded them be prepared! Oh yes, I used SU! Good Cheer dsp.

And finally ...who can resist making an elephant card with bunting? Not me! Here it is (it's not so blurry in real life):
All done...see you in another 6 or so months!

LOVE the take on the JAI sketch, Caroline - and it's great to see you blogging again! Your Christmas card is gorgeous; I love it. (You have much more patience than I do, to make that amazing Christmas tree, too!) Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week!

Hi Caroline, yes it is hard getting used to the new blog format but you will navigate it easy when you have the time. I spent quite a lot of time learning and making my new blog and I'm much happier with the result.
Had to have a look at the tree after you told us about it yesterday. Fantastic, always love your work.
Cheers Gail.
