Look - no red!

So...I managed to create a card without red - wow!

I made this card to demonstrate a couple of new techniques to my mum - she comes for "private lessons" every wednesday!

This covered masking, a technique I don't know the name of (using 2 colours on a background stamp to give the background colours) and the little cut-work down one side (around the palm tree) - I liked how this one turned out!

I've used the travel to india judikin's cube, K&Co paper (from the hannah range), and I love this new paper cellar paper raffia - I got it from QVC's last craft day - it came in 5 lovely shades!

Mum brought me another sugar nellie, Hamish with the sledge, so when easter and St Pat's etc is all out of the way we can get cracking on our christmas cards - won't we be the 2 organised ladies!!!!! bx
