The Holly and the Ivy!

 Hello Everyone, I do hope that you are all keeping well and coping with the strange times. At least the vaccine is underway, so that is hopeful. I  personally don't like to think that we will soon be back to normal, as I think our Normal was how we got into this trouble in the first place, I don't mean Covid, but how it's been all handled and being a totally capitalist society, and hugely unequal where money is more important than life, there are so many people suffering in one way or another.  These are my thoughts, I'm sure they are not for everyone.

Anyway, my card today is one I've made for my Son and DIL,


 All the dies used are from JND, and the Ivy and sentiment are cut in sliver mirror card. I found some lovely white ribbon with a silver thread through it that just goes beautifully with the design and the poinsettia is made from vellum with a dazzler at it's center and a few gems.  I'm pleased to say that they liked it.

Thank you for the lovely comments on my last card, I appreciate everyone of them and that you find time to come and visit.

Well that's all for now, take care of yourselves and stay safe,
