Hello Everyone,

I hope you all had a good weekend. I've been a busy bee, look who has joined our family this weekend :)

Meet little Jaxx, he is just the most adorable Bichon Frise puppy and is settling in just fine.  He is just so adorable.

OK so onto my card.  This is a commissioned card using papers from Maja Design

Below is the floral display using 30mm, 20mm Roses, Rose Buds, Carnation, flower spray and the Joycraft glittered bobbly flower 071. I added a Marianne Forest Branch cut in the matching papers to finish the 

The gorgeous little butterfly is new and is from the new release garden set

Here is the other butterfly from the same set, aren't they gorgeous.  I have also used the Marianne Design Flower Doily, another gorgeous die.

I added 50 to the Dutch Doobadoo cardboard balloon.

We also have the NEW Dutch Doobadoo Pearl Pens which I used for the centre of the butterfly :)

Across the top is the new flower border die and I used the little flower die from the garden set for the centres .
I added a tag, tied with cord and a scarf charm.

I added a tag with the word "happy" and again tied with cord.

To the left hand side I added Round 4, love this die :)

I have added tulle to the bottom of the card.

The image is coloured with distress inks and layered onto the Square from the Square and Chandelier die set.

I had to make a birthday card for my niece but she's a plain Jane girl and I find these plain cards difficult but I thought the lollipop card would suit the bill.  I placed a prima cupcake in the centre as Claire loves cupcakes so this was actually the perfect card for her :)

This is my last post before Christmas so I would like to thank you all for your comments throughout the year and wish you all a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Hugs Tracy x
