Christmas Wreath

Thank you all so much for your lovely get well wishes. I feel fine now, just got some sniffles left!
Today I went to a floral workshop to make this gorgeous christmas wreath, it is a huge improvement on last year's effort. It was held at a fabulous place with stunning views and they provided a delicious lunch of homemade soup, sandwiches and cake! How perfect!
I managed a card yesterday but can't show it yet as it is for a friend who could check on here so will show after the weekend. Hopefully I will get around for a blog hop later tonight, can't wait to see what you have all been making. Have a great weekend and thanks so much for visiting!

sympathy card

Sorry I have been gone so long, I am still busy with the house but taking a day off as I have a horrible cold and can't manage anything too energetic.
I made this a couple of weeks ago when I needed a sympathy card, just never got the chance to upload it.

The image is the gorgeous 'Strawberry Tea' from Sugar Nellie designed by Elisabeth Bell.
The papers are Basic grey from a Wassail pad and the flowers are all Primas.

Glad Tidings

In between painting my kitchen walls I managed to come up with this card. It is too tempting having lovely new stash, just had to have a play!
I followed the Ismaki sketch as it has been ages since I have played along, so long that I didn't realise the sketch was last weeks! Oh well, better late than never! Also as I used my new Basic Grey Wassail papers and the Basic Grey challenge is 'Christmas' I decided to double up, they may be the only challenges I manage to take part in this week, although I would love to squeeze in another card later in the week.
I used this sweet new image from Sugar Nellie 'Trimming the tree' illustrated by Elisabeth Bell. I had to get both tree trimming stamps so watch out for the next is one of my favourite parts of Christmas!
