Ho ho ho!!

I'm well under way now with my Christmas samples for Debbi but obviously can't show them yet but at least we've got wintery type (well almost) weather. I always struggle to make Christmas cards when the sun is blazing and it's warm outside :)
I can, however, show you Rosie's necklace I made to match her bracelet from DD.


I used irridescent 1.5mm Miyuki Delicas, bronze seed beads and 4mm Swarovski AB crystals. I looks lovely in real life but I couldn't get a really decent picture of it. I also made a card to send with it. Stamp is from Funky Kits and the backing paper (I think) is from an old K & Co pad. They were posted to day so hopefully Rosie will get them tomorrow.

And now the list :)

Gorgeous necklace Jackie.

Thanks for your nice comment on my blog - I took the easy option and printed the image - I'm a pretty rubbish stamper and printing was so quick and easy. Stuck the crystals on with a Kandi Kane.

Can't believe you're so organised with Christmas cards already - I've bought 3 Christmas 6x6 pads and some brads - does that count as being organised (even though I still have all the ones I bought last year too?)

As always I'm impressed by how much you manage to achieve.

Take care xoxo
