Hello, thank you for stopping by....

What a night/morning with this blog, I'm developing 'blog phobia'!!  Last night, when I logged on to my blog to post today's card the icons at the top of my page (new post etc) had vanished!  Sent numerous messages to the required forums for help/advice and I'm still waiting to hear from them, may be I'm blacklisted after losing my original blog ;) LOL

Anyway, I've kind of got in through the backdoor and may have to do this permanently but if I disappear again it could be because of this problem, or health reasons, or I've won the lottery and I'm on vacation.... I don't play the lottery!

I usually work a week in advance with my posts, it's only because of it being Christmas week that I've not done this, so enough of the blabbering on and here's today's card....

An 8" square 'dark roast coffee' base card with coordinating cardstock of peach and orange.... first time I've used this combination but, sometimes, you have to get out of your 'comfort zone'

I die cut the peach card, top and bottom

Omitting the cutting dies from the second set, I used two of the circular dies for the centre then matted the top panel onto orange card

I die cut the swirls from the same colour of the base card and added pale, peachy flowers

The sentiment was stamped using a brown ink pad

The card inside does look a lot deeper but I can assure you it is the same orange card I used for the card front

I used the same circular die but embossed it keeping all the fall out pieces in place by adding single sided tape to the back of it
The corner pieces are also from the same range of dies

Sorry about the shadow!
