Red and White

Hello friends
I'm on a Die D-Lites roll!  
This little red and white gift card was created from Medallion Two
I chose not to use the outer shaped die template but just the inner one as an insert pattern.
Backed onto white cardstock it really highlights the intricate pattern.
It needs a sentiment stamped in the middle but as this was another one being 
sent out to Germany, I chose to keep it plain.
Also I'm a little hooked on using the tiny flowers from Homespun!

By this time you all should be part way through your Advent calendars.
Michelle from Southport sent me in some photos of her creations.
Firstly look at all these!
I'm not sure what you call a collection of Advent calendars...but WOW is good!
And Michele has been upcycling cheese boxes too....
Stunning butterflies.
Thank you Michele for sending the pictures along - I love seeing crafty creations.

Today I'm putting the finishing touches to my Festive Day class tomorrow,
a whole day of crafting with occasional breaks for cake, chocolate, Christmas goodies -
everything is calorie free at this time of year...right??
Have a lovely weekend dear friends.

Hi Christine, your gift tag looks so elegant, plain and simple. Michelle's Advent Frames look amazing and I know how time consuming they are to make as I made seven of them. Have not tried the cheese box project yet but that is in hand.
