Yes a card from me! Now not something prefect but I was playing with my new toy embossing some card and die cutting a couple of lids for boxes when I looked at the bits lying in the pile along with the silver ribbon I'd taken out to use as well, when I thought ( that would be ok as a card). So this is it
Base card is 6x6 and the card is from Payperbox, had it for a few years. I embossed the next piece with a folder that Patricia let me borrow and then topped it with a piece cut from a 12x12 sheet of Silent Night card - this is beautiful card. Sorry for  using a peel off but have had them for years so at least I can say I have used one.  It's not up to any of your wonderful standards but I am pleased with myself for doing it. 

Now I have to get the lid bits cut for the school better not get side tracked again, as the school boxes need to be finished by next week.  
Thank you for again all your lovely comments on my baskets.   By the way Patricia and I had a good day out but oh boy we were tired by the time we had to go for the bus.  We have decided we are passed walking around the shops etc.  as for the show it was more a show for people  selling things for Christmas, I was hoping it was one where they would be showing putting gifts together and how to wrap gifts beautifully, but no just things to purchase - yes there was beautiful things, only bought a couple of things.

Anyway off to cut lids etc.  have a good afternoon.

  3. What's the problem with peel offs you use what is to hand to complete a card. Your card is lovely, its a learning curve this card making, you learn as you go along.

  4. Hi Hazel,
    there is no problem with peel offs. I have used some on my boxes that I will be showing later on. I have had them for years.
    Great card, and I love the tree. When I think back to my first efforts at card making yours is much superior than mine was, and you have a wonderfully talented sister to influence you, and help.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  5. Your card is gorgeous Hazel, I love the elegant design and I think the peel off looks fabulous.
    Glad you had a good day out with Patricia.
