It was meant to be a Christmas card ... but ...

With the best intentions, and still afew outstanding Christmas cards to be done, this was meant to be Christmassy, but no.  However I did find patterned paper that fitted the bill for this ColourQ challenge

Then came the design I had to try, didn't feel up to colouring an image for the focal point as was done in the inspiration cards (read laziness into the above statement), so went for a simple flower image. 

This used afew items that have been in my collection for quite some time, always a good thing, so maybe I should set myself a challenge of using up some supplies ...  wonder how long that will last.  

What you need
Cardstock - Bazzill Basics cream;  SU Real Red, Regal Rose, Glorious Green, white
Patterned Paper - Doodlebug Love Blooms
Stamps - PTI Wishing you
Ink - SU Real Red, Green Galore
Ribbon - Kiasercraft
Die - PTI Ric Rac; SB Classic and Scalloped Ovals
  We had a great time on our road trip to NSW.  Little Miss LOVED Harry Potter - there wasn't a tonne of stuff to see, which, for children is probably a good thing, but very well put together.  The Jenolan Caves (limestone caves west of Sydney), particularly Carols in the Caves was my highlight though very cold.  But then it is a toss up with a trip to the Donna Hay General Store (one of my favourite chefs).  I think that my purchases from here will have to be my Christmas presents.


  1. Love it! So bright and cheery. :-)

  2. This is so pretty - love the paper and the pretty roses. Great card!

  3. What a beautiful Christmas card, Patricia! Love the paper for sure. Thanks for joining us at the ColourQ this week and happy holidays.

  4. Oh, how cute this is! It's so cheery (and I need cheering, the weather has been pretty dismal here). Love the combination of the ribbon and roses (green, yet!)--this would be a wonderful little girl birthday card.

  5. I am personally thrilled that it's this bright flowery birthday card instead! So cute, I love the roses. thanks for playing at the colourQ! :)
