Swiss Dots II

Working on so many cards with a deadline to meet - keeping my swiss dots out was a quick help in deciding the background texture.  Putting the gift pack together it also looked better in sets of a three minimum of each design.  This way I was able to get a production line going, of course what was in the scrap pack determined what colors and style I would create.....especially if you only a had a minimum of an embellishment, ribbon or paper design.......

A5 Cream Cardstock - Mountain Fold
Embossing Folder - Swiss Dots - Cuttlebug
Punch - CP I & 2
Punch Border - Punch Border Eyelet - Stampin Up
Ribbon & papers

I worked on most of the remaining cards during a Christmas Eve in July Event.  A sleepover for us ladies to get together have some fun crafting, feasting and boy did we eat well.  A table laden with honeyed Julienned carrots & inted peas, crunchy golden baked spuds with spicy plum basted chicken and gravy.  For desert christmas pudding and custard of course - and everything was made from scratch and particularly pleased how well the pudding turned out.....You will be able to find the pudding recipe in my recipe section or use the link http://wildoppycraft.blogspot.com/p/recipes.html  I also hope to show you some of the cards for the card challenge where each lady had to supply an element....

Oh and I can't wait to show you some of the decorating accessories I have been working on for my crafting room......keep you posted
