Betsy - Christmas Gifts etc

Betsy here this morning and I'm afraid I have really slipped up on the Christmas Gifts.
Liz has had me SO busy and as one gets older, one hasn't the speed one used to have!!! Oh well, we're so thankful to be still here, enjoying another lovely Summer's day.

I have played with Tim Holtz's birdcage die and made this little lantern which does look rather gorgeous when it has the tea light going. The photograph does not do it justice, as you don't get the changing colours. Anyway, what's you're thoughts ladies.

This card is also another idea, with a tea light behind it, which lights it up. It really is just an easel card with vallum set into the front, so as the light can shine through. Again, looks better at night.

Now, some time ago Liz gave all the DT members a challenge, to see what we could come up with using Kaisercraft's Merry and Bright collection. We had to use certain elements in the pack, which I managed to do, and here is my contribution.

That's it today ladies. We had a fabulous day, on Saturday, at Artfull Crafts, it being the Christmas celebrations. What a lovely group of ladies and Liz had everything so well organized. Lots and lots of gifts seem to have be given out, as well as we had a live band for the Christmas carols. A great day altogether.

Remember all the fun going on at Artfull Crafts - Liz does love setting up challenges and there are also prizes to be won. Check them out.

Happy crafting to all and may you know God's blessing,



  1. Sure was fun! Thanks for your wonderful workshop :-)

  2. Hi Betsy, As usual you come up with the goods! I just love the wee birdcage. You're a clever little budgy. X
