Frosty Border

Hello sweet friends ...
Things are settling down here now that Gipsy is home ... Of course she is in charge once again and everything is revolving around her ... She seems very nervous and doesn't venture far ... just steps out into the garden occasionally and likes to stay close to Mike. 
We are all so grateful for your wishes and prayers ... Lets hope she has learned her lesson ...

I also want to say a big Thank You to the lovely ladies at Just Us Girls for picking my card as 
"Chic of The week"
This was the first time I ever tried ribbon weaving so I am grateful to them for introducing me to a technique that I will definitely do again ...

I treated myself to a new die by Memory Box ... The frosty border die and I love it! It cuts so cleanly even though it is quite intricate. I have just ordered a couple more of these ... I discovered that even the craft store in Salford Quays has now closed down so other than Hobby Craft ... which isn't local either ... we have nowhere to shop ... Thank goodness for the internet.

Here are some quick cards I made using the new border die ...


The script paper 'Twas the night before Christmas' and the sentiments are by Pink Petticoat


The glittery paper and the overcast weather don't make for good photos I'm afraid


... A closer look at the border


I've had these little 3D bauble stickers for years!


I think this one is my favourite



I hope you are having a lovely start to your weekend ... 

Thank you for stopping by and leaving me such lovely comments ... I am so grateful

Till soon ... keep safe

Three beautifully created Christmas cards, Ros. I love your frosty border die! I bought those sentiments from PP last week, but haven't used them yet. They look lovely!:)
Congrats on being picked as 'Chic of the Week'
I sounds as if, Gipsy didn't have a very nice adventure. She will probably be more reluctant to wander in future...hopefully! :) x

Oh, I can imagine how beautiful this is in real life - it is completely stunning in your photos. What an amazing card !! Sorry I have been away this week - that surgery didn't recover as I had wished, and I have been ill. BUT - congrats on your ribbon weaving win at JUGS !! Holy cow, another gorgeous creation, by far the prettiest card EVER, and I hope you will use that technique again and again, it looks made for you. AND your kitty back home again, what a relief, and I imagine such joy on everyone's parts !! Thinking of you, though I have been a lousy correspondent... Hugs and love --J--

What a beautiful die, Ros... they've each turned out so lovely! Surprising that you haven't used those bauble stickers till now, they're gorgeous... and the sentiment word Christmas is fabulous!!! Love the way it's written (if that makes sense, being a stamp)! Anyway, your cards are all lovely!
Hugs!
