Fussy and fancy - Finally

Big, big apologizes to my teamies over at Winter Wonderland. Nothing has gone as planed this week. I have been writing an exam that I should have done next week and all illnesses before that. I ended up behind with some stuff, but before with my exam. :)

Well, to get my card done and not more late than I had to, I have used a precoloured image from Lili of the Valley and it's from one of their artsy pads. I have used designer papers from Pion design and has once again manage to use up some scraps with makes me happy. A little more space in the shelfs, just a little but still... Our theme over at the Winter Wonderland is Fussy and Fancy and for a while now you dont even have to make Christmas cards to join us.

I have made a flower cluster as I love my flowers but the cards gets bulky. However this is a part of an order I got a while back and for once there was something good with higher cost of sending mail. they increased the weight for the same stamp as well. 50 grams and now most of my cards can be sent with one stamp again. WooHoo! The flowers are from different manufactures like Magnolia, I am Roses and WOC. Some dies are used as well: spellbinders, joy and Joanna Sheen. A MS punch and tons of glitter too.

This sponsor part is from our challenge blog:

"This is the start of the few months of the year where you don't have to make a Christmas project to enter our challenge although you can make it a Christmas project if you want to. 

As this is our last challenge for 2014 it will last for 2 weeks and we have four great prizes on offer!  These are our great sponsors:

£10 Voucher from the The Hobby House

£10 Voucher from Wild Orchid

£10 Voucher for Crafter's Companion

3 Digi's from Crafty Sentiments Designs"

Well, sweet and short. Soccer practise soon and then off to IKEA to buy a few things. Then we're going iceskating as the kids did a brilliant job cleaning up their play room. Rewards is a good thing sometimes, then we have cookie baking on the agenda. We'll see how this goes. Luckly there is still a few days before Christmas Eve is here. Just need to get started on things and then we're on.

Take care everyone,

Love n hugs

Hi, Marie! Hope your exam went well and that you're managing to catch up with some of the things that were put off! I think I'm sort of ready for Christmas, just got the children's dress rehearsal this afternoon for their Christmas Eve Nativity - that's when Christmas really kicks in for me, seeing them all dressed up in their costumes and singing carols! It's much more low key for us this year with the boys getting older, but I love the day itself with turkey dinner, presents and games to play afterwards, plus hubby is off work for a full 10 days! Bliss!
Love your beautiful card - so pretty! Great card shape, lovely floral image and lots of stunning embellishments too! Hugs, Lisa x

Oh wow, wow and another wow. This is just amazingly beautiful and I just adore how you replicated the water colours in the image with the flower arrangement you added. Wishing you and your loved ones a blessed festive season and a 2015 filled with tons of love and joy.
