Seasons Greetings. . . . . . . . .

Good morning everybody. Friday the 13th. . . . . . eek!!!  Hope all is well with you and yours. Thank you for your concern and best wishes. Feeling better now thanks but still sniffy and a bit Russian shot putter. . . . . . Ivor Chestikoff. . . . . . . boom boom!!! Never fear, I shall never let illness stand in the way of a terrible joke.
Why is it that folk are always willing to share germs but not cash?
Kate and Gail, whose this Toddie fella that does you wonders and can you spare him for a few days hahaha!!!
Jackie, its probably too late to wish you safe travels and thank you for your lovely comments. I always try and find a bit of humour in what can be a sad world and would rather smile than frown (not sure which gives you worse wrinkles but heyho).

Now today's card is another quick make. I started with an A5 cream card base and I ran the front through the GC with my homemade baubles mask. I then cut four different sizes of the SB Heirloom Ornaments 2010 from gold mirror, red and cream card as shown.

Also, I cut two of the calyx from the Britannia Medium Rose die from red card. I layered all the baubles with thin foam pads. I used a gold Promarker to draw veins on the calyxs to look like a poinsettia, popped this on top and then added a gold gem. I then popped a star on top.
Sentiment is heat embossed in gold.

Quick and easy but hopefully nice. Aiming for something a bit more elaborate for next time.

Until till next time folks, keep warm and well and be good.
