Anything But A Christmas Card

The card I made to launch the 'Celebrate Spring!' Competition : )

It was nice to make something that wasn't a Christmas card. Christmas cards are actually my favourite cards to make. And every year I love to get started on them. But I'm usually more than ready to start creating something different when the festive season is all finished, aren't you?

So I thoroughly enjoyed making this Lollipop Flower card.

Lollipop Flower cards tick all the right boxes for me. Because they're simply punched out shapes, they're quick & easy to make and great for using up scraps and I can be as creative as I like with them. Any colour combination, any centre, any leaf or stalk shapes. Pretty, simple or overloaded with embellishments - anything goes with these really.

They're something a little bit different to give to someone. And usually very well received as well.

And for this one ... I got to play with my new 'Tiny {Sweetheart} Sentiments' too. They're my new favourites : )

Thank you all so much for visiting this week. Enjoy your weekend everyone!
