Christmas is a time for Family, Friends, Love and Laughter

 

 

Gosh its getting close now, and a lot of the challenge blogs are getting ready to have a break!

 

This is the last Challenge for 2013 for the Aussie My Besties Challenge Blog - Christmas

 

 

I have made a twisted Easel Card in a Vintage style and Traditional Colours.

 



 

This is a very cute Image by Sherri Baldy and you can find it HERE

 

 

I have coloured with my Promarkers and added Stickles to the fur areas!

 

 

I used a lot of lace and ribbon flowers in my design, together with berries from Live and Love Crafts!

 

 

I have been wanting to try the faux Zipper for ages, I love it and cant wait to do it again!

I hung some cute charms off my zipper!

 

 

I made a lace rosette and added a gorgeous pearl and diamanté button to the centre. I also used the same lace on the base below and the inside of the open zipper!

This lovely die cut below my sentiment is a Brenda Walton Die, and the Sentiment is from Pink Petticoat Boutique.

 

 

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and stop by to visit the Aussie Besties and add your own card. You have until Jan 12 to enter!

 

Hugs Julie xox

  13. Hi Julie.... I just love your work! I follow you on Bloglovin'....

    But today, I came to your blog from the Besties Challenge Blog that was linked to a card you had made for a challenge back on July 7th. I thought the link would take me directly to that particular post, but it just brought me to your blog's "Home" page. So I tried to find a "Blog Archive" in your sidebar to hunt down that particular post.... but I either must be blind and overlooked it or you don't have a blog archive. :(

    It took me a lot of time to scroll backwards through all your posts since early July, but I finally found the card!... I would not have bothered to do that if your work wasn't so beautiful :)

    Would you consider adding an Archive in your sidebar (if I didn't just miss it, LOL), so things might be easier to find? A "Search this Blog" link would be wonderful as well...

    As I said, I already follow you on Bloglovin', but there are times when I need to return to certain posts on my favorite blogs, and sometimes yours are very hard and time-consuming to find again! Please consider this just as it's intended... as a 'suggestion' (not any criticism).

    Thanks for all your wonderful inspiration! It's truly appreciated :)
