Ok - I PROMISE that I will be a better blogger here on out!!!! This year we have been SHOCKING and it has to stop! hehehehhe.

And to start the ball rolling I thought I'd show you some photo's of the swap card I made for the Brisbane Regionals last weekend...

Really bad photo's I know - I still haven't sorted out a good place for taking photo's...

Anyway - this is the green version - I've used Always Artichoke - and can I say I LOVE this green for Christmas - so lovely and deep and subdued. Paired with Cherry Cobbler and Very Vanilla - I really really like this colour combo.

So - its a Always Artichoke base. I've added an embossed layer and then used the new Log Cabin Smooch Spritz on the background - on the green it looks more like the spritzer tool, but on the red the lovely glittery-ness really shows through.

To that I've added a Top Note using the new First Edition DSP (LOVE!!!!) on which I have stamped the family image from 'Season of Joy' and then I have glued over the top a Vellum Top Note onto which I have stamped the wreath image from the same stamp set. I have used a pen to colour in the little berries. I really really liked the effect - just nice and soft. Finish it off with some flowers and that yummy yummy seam binding ribbon and I was done.

And here's the red version...

I did alternate the colour of the sentiments but other than that the two are exactly the same. I made 40 of these and was thoroughly sick of them by the end. :)

And this is the only action shot I got on the day - Lisa will KILL me for sharing it but it was the only one! :) Lisa took lots herself so hopefully she'll be able to share a few soon. :)

Thanks so much for stopping by and I PROMISE to be back again soon!

Have a great weeks end!
