Stitched Christmas Card

Good afternoon everyone hope the week is going well for you. Its getting very cold here a real nip in the air so looks like Autumn is really upon us I also noticed in the garden this morning that my Winter Flowering Jasmine has its first lovely yellow flowers always the first sign of  winter. Enough of the weather the card I'm posting today is a pattern we did at Craft Class a couple of weeks ago and  I made it into a very traditional Christmas card. I love this holly paper the greens and  reds are so rich looking . Its by Kaisercraft.

Hi Carole. Lovely classic Christmas card with a twist with your use of stitching and bead berries. The sentiment is just right for the style of card. It's a great idea for a card. It's no good, I'll just have to move near you and join your craft club!
Hope you have a good night out with your friend's. Tell Val I'm with her all the way with her going sober for October! Mind you I can't drink so I'm not sure if that counts as encouragement? Lol. Debra x
