Ribbon Tree!!!

Just a quick and easy card tonight.
The tree is handcut from green Core'dinations, embossed with a Cuttlebug folder and then sanded. It was then layered onto a piece of gold and trimmed round.
The ribbon is from a selection at Monks Den Crafts as is the peeloff in the top corner.
This has been placed onto a piece of gold card and then cut out. Some of the edge detail has been removed because it was just too darn fiddly to cut!!!

Well that's my working week over and done with. Got nothing particular planned for the weekend as I just know that if I plan it all goes belly up anyway. So just going to take it as it comes although I have been asked to make a pot of Garbage Broth.......sounds disgusting I know but all it is is my homemade veg soup. I just throw all sorts of veg into it and it's very tasty and warming. I shall serve it in the beautiful new bowls hubby bought for me this week which were an absolute bargain from Tesco. They are red glazed terracotta and were reduced from about £7.50 to £3.50 each.

Feeling the need for a bit of rubber bashing now. My room should be nice and cosy as I have the oil radiator on low just to keep the chill off. I filled the kettle this morning so I just need some milk and that's me happy until hubby gets home.

Thanks for dropping by.


  1. I do seem to say the same things over and over about your cards Sheila but I can't help it.

    They are all gorgeous and this one is especially elegant.
