Four Festive Flowers

Hello friends,
Thank you for all your kind comments yesterday,
as regards the Square Bracket Edge Box Die, I do hope to get more of these in my Amazon shop...
will keep you posted.
How about this design for producing lots of  very quick cards. 
Background paper and using the lovely Layered Poinsettia -
four small flowers all in a row, twine and tag and that's it!
I have an admission ...I never seem to get around to making all my Christmas cards!
I have good intentions but other things take over and I normally have to rush out and buy a box of cards
(hang my head in shame!)

Like yesterday, this is one of the projects featuring in
Make Christmas Cards magazine.
(I'm going to post something non-Christmassy tomorrow!)

Right - I need to give you a waxed paper update. 
My order is currently sitting in a container ready to be shipped over from the States,
I've been told it will take approximately two-three weeks.
I didn't order a whole container full believe me..mine is a little box in a corner somewhere!
I am so sorry about the delay - please email me if you would like more details.
I've run out myself so feeling a little frantic!

Other news: a lady called Sue has sent me through details of a new
craft auction website that she has started
It is a great place to source your crafting needs and also to sell your finished items,
surplus supplies and tools.
The advantage is that there are no listing fees, so on a standard auction
if your item doesn't sell, it will not cost you a penny.
Sounds great doesn't it.

Ideal World at 9pm tonight - tune in for something special,
have a little look here - I love these!

Have a lovely day - it has been non-stop rain here, the heating is on,
the cats are smiling snuggled up to the radiators and Bella is depressed at staying indoors!
I'm still happily crafting!

Hi Christie,this is a card for batch crafting,so simple but effective. Boy you have given me an idea on using up a stack of paper I have.

I am sitting here listening to the wind and the rain battering my window, hope this passes soon the dogs refuse to go out in it.

Morning Christine, I love your quickie christmas card today, like you, I too don't end up making all my christmas cards, there's always something else to be done, so I know exactly what you mean.
I have looked at your sneak peak of tonight's POTD, they look gorgeous, but I can't understand why C&C are cutting out Sue and Creative Expressions from this batch of new dies !!!!
Lots of love from Patricia xx

This is a lovely card Christine, the poinsettias look gorgeous in cream too. The new Spellbinders look interesting, have some lovely designs again. Will set the box to record the shows tonight, thanks for the heads up!
The sun is shining here this morning which is very nice after yesterday's downpours.

Hi Christine,
lovely card, fab idea for making quick cards.
Love the sneak peak at whats going to be on tonight. Wish I had more pennies to spend.
For all your ladies waiting for your waked paper. Try the supermarket starting with T and try their own make baking parchment it works a treat.
I hope I haven't done you out of some business, Christine.
Have a wonderful crafty day.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Hi Christine, great quicky Christmas Card idea on the blog today. Must confess, I too have to send purchased cards out at Christmas promising myself that I will do better the next year - hasnt happened yet, sad to say.
Better day today here Re the weather. Enjoy the rest of today, bet your crafting at some point. Crafty best wishes, Carolyn. x

Such a sweet card and a fab simple idea. Have been watching the Spellbinder shows - loving the new dies. I usually end up buying some of my Christmas cards too - am aiming to try and make them all this year but we will see! I haven't started yet! xx
