All Wrapped Up!


Back home after a week in Yorkshire with both good and bad weather, the really good day we chose to go to Whitby, a favourite place of mine, we actually climbed the 199 steps (so I'm told) up to the church and abbey. ( a family story is that my Aunt marched her ATS platoon up those steps during the war after an evening spent in a local hostelry). I took my promarkers and some stamped images to work on in the evenings but only completed about five pieces as I was reading my latest Terry Pratchett for most of the week plus the odd craft magazine. The card here is a LOTV image called 'All Wrapped up', I think she is so lovely and just had to get her, I was not sure about adding the flowers to a christmas image but I do like the final result, a bit of glitter gives that christmassy feel it think.
I am entering this card into two challenges....
Christmas Flowers
Christmas In June

She is GORGEOUS! The snowflake framework is lovely too and the dark roses and hint of frosting finish it off beautifully.

I can't think about Christmas yet Maureen - I'm still waiting for summer! It makes sense to make cards throughout the year and avoid a last minute panic, and this is a lovely card. Whitby is a place I always hope to see one day
but there are too many to fit them all in.
