Warm Winter Wishes

Hello friends
Well, my heating is on every evening now so it seems appropriate today to share a 
'Warm Winter Wishes' card!
This was created for Spellbinders last year, the papers are Bo Bunny - Father Christmas and I 
was thrilled to see a snowflake design that matched Create-A-Flake Three
In between the snowflake layers I used a little metal flower charm, one of those objects
that languishes in a box for ages until the exact right crafty moment!
I've stamped a Labels Sixteen for the sentiment and then lightly spritzed it with Glimmer Mist.
I've used Classic Petal Edgeabilities® on both the card and on the envelope flap.
London working day today..definitely not as much fun as crafting!
I will be back tomorrow for the all important Friday Die Day!
Take care and have a lovely day.

Hi Christine, I adore the vintage look, the paper are o lovely. Your idea to co-ordinate the envelope is just perfect. Lovely, lovely, lovely. It's only two days "working" then back to full time crafting.

Take care.

Morning Chrtine, I think the title of this card matches it perfectly as the colours are very warm. It is a beautiful card and I love the way you have incorporated the metal charm. I do actually have some so that has reminded me and given me an idea, thank you. I know what you mean about having things in your craft box waiting for the right project... love the idea of using the edgeabilities on the envelope too - it works perfectly.
Hope London goes well today and looking forward to Friday Die Day.

Hi Christine. Don't these weeks go quickly? Is it really die day again tomorrow?

Love the card, the snowfakes are really lovely. I spent yesterday evening cutting out poinsettias and snowflakes for my never ending list of Christmas cards, so I'm rearing to go today.

Looking forward to tomorrow's FDD. It'll be my last time of looking at your blog for a little while, as I'm away on holiday Saturday.....not sure how I will cope!

Hi Christine,
An adorable shabby chic/vintage card. I adore Bo Bunny and the rich deep tones are always so appealing and coordinate so well. I love the added touch of metal too.
