More Bits And Bobs

Another card made with the bits in last years Christmas card making box. The topper and poinsettia were already made ,just added the DP. I remember when I made this topper thinking I would not be doing many as it took for ages to paperpiece the tree.  We are going away for a few days from tomorrow so I am hoping to come back with some inspiration, we are back on Friday just in time for me to go to Port Sunlight on Saturday, so hopefully will come back from there fired up and ready to go!

  2. A very festive card Joan - and how fab that the bits were all ready waiting in the Christmas box! I can see how time consuming it was to paper piece the tree but it's a lovely effect, well worth the effort! Love the touch of sparkle on the poinsettia!
