October Review...

Happy Monday,

I thought I would brighten up the period between Christmas and new year with a shot of the christmas flower arrangement I made for our kitchen table.  As everything I ma making at the moment is for future shows I can't feature anything new until the sneak peak for sundays shows on saturday.

Back to the review and we have, finally, made it  to October so only 2 days left!

First had to be one of my favourite christmas cards made with Sue's peace die and iced snow which has got to be this years product for me along with the rest of the glitter jewels collection!

I loved this technique of adding embossing powder to the reverse of an embossed card piece.  The depth is juts amazing.  I also found that the stamp looked so snowy and effective when simply embossed in cosmic Shimmer detail white embossing powder.

Finally the card I made upside down on Live TV!  Those of you who saw it hopefully got the gist of making it the right way up!
