Same, but different!

Oooh, sometimes I'm just a lucky bunny! I received the new Dreamees Christmas CD 'Christmas Memories' in the post a couple of days ago and as soon as I saw this bauble image I knew I wouldn't get through the week without using it! I have no self control! I'm not sure what you're going to think of these two; they're a bit different to my normal style and my man wasn't sure about the colours (he's colour blind so perhaps I should just ignore him!) I happen to LOVE these colours and really hope I'm not on my own or I'll have to rethink my Christmas cards!!!

This snowflake punch is MUCH easier to use than some of the other PATP punches. The image and sentiments are all from the Dreamees Christmas CD. The embossed card is mostly from Kanban - the dotty background I made using a Cuttlebug embossing folder. The scrummy border is from the Moroccan Accents Spellbinders set. The snowflakes are also from Spellbinders.

Card number two is made using the same topper and lots of lovely backing papers from the CD.

I tried hard not to over embellish! This is practically CAS for me! I used one of the gorgeous Creative Expressions organza roses on the snowflakes ( can you believe they've discontinued those roses - I may sulk!)

Carol also sent me a fabulous dandelion stamp and I've seen a lovely card in a mag with a flower stamped and embossed onto acetate and I want to give it a go. Watch this space - I'll show you even if it's a disaster - I like to share, remember when I chopped Tilda's head in half? lol.

Big hugs, have a fabulous weekend. Jayne xx
