Helloooo there peeps.  I am so sorry I have not been around lately but I have been a tad poorly, first of all my back condition flared up more than usual so I thought I would be clever and work it off by (gently) tidying my Craft cupboard.   This has worked in the past - not this time though.   This, in turn, brings on other problems which you don't need to be bored with .... yawn!   I am beginning to feel a little better now and the Mojo Fairy is just starting to twinkle.  I knew I had to make some cards for an ex colleague and also for the Christmas Card Club so I combined the two and have made this card for my ex colleague and also for the CCC.  This fortnight it is Dawn's theme and she picked 'O Christmas Tree'.  Thank you for this lovely theme Dawn.

A few months ago I was trawling through blogland and found some cards made by a lady called Debby, she had made some white on white cards for Christmas and I was really taken by them.  Whilst I was wondering what to do I suddenly remembered these and thought I would take inspiration from her.  This is based on her design but I have used different dies on mine, although the trees are the same.  You can find Debby's blog here.

7" x 7" White Card Blank - Anna Marie Designs
Spellbinders 'Garden Lattice' Embossing Folder
Spellbinders 'Opulent Ovals' die
Dee's Distinctly 'Stacker Tree' die
Poppy Stamps 'Angel Corner' die
Poppy Stamps 'Fremont Pine Landscape' die
Sizzix 'Christmas Dots' Embossing Folder
Martha Stewart Punch
Martha Stewart Glitter
Ribbon, Pearls, Silver Embossed backing card from stash

I hope you like this one, I do admit it isn't one of my ideas, but when the Mojo Fairy needs some help, you gotta do what you gotta do.  Debby has some gorgeous inspirational cards, so beautiful.  Thank you Debby.

Big hugs to you all and thank you for popping by after all this time, please forgive me if it still takes me a while to get around your blogs, I have to make some more cards for my ex colleague and also the OSAAT  DT so I am hoping for a little more Fairy Dust for my Mojo Fairy ........... pleeeeeease!!!
