Spots and Stripes

Morning all

Are you ready for Xmas yet? Well I am done but I am lucky as I visit family on Xmas day so don't have a big food shop to do.
And tonight is my first Xmas Party this year. We are off to a neighbour's Winter Solstice party-the longest night of the yesr-although Winter Solstice is generally celebrated on 21st Dec, this year it is actually tomorrow. Traditionally this is a day to spend with friends and family. Traditions involve making Xmas presents with your kids, decorationg Xmas Yule Logs and bringing Holly and Mistletoe into the house. Did you know Holly is considered male-prickly with the fertile red berries and mistletoe being the femaie-soft!! Well I had to look all that but found it interesting as I didn't know any of that.

And onto my card-another card for a friend and this time I have used the same sentiment but followed  the spots and stripes Daring Cardmakers challenge.

I had a go at curved edges. I did it free hand and thought it came out o.k.

Enjoy your day x

I used:
Pink Petticoat digi bloomin sentiment
Stampin up paper
Flower and ribbon from my US cousin Lynn-not sure where she got them!
Kanban gem.


  1. I love that ribbon! Lovely sentiment and colour scheme too. Happy Christmas!

  2. Wishing you and your family a wonderful and joyous Christmas Sandie.
