Did you miss me?

Sorry for the prolonged absence, I really was trying to be a good blogger for a while there and then Christmas started to get in the way, in a good way.  I've been tasked with arranging the Christmas party at work, which is on Friday this week and so I've been concentrating on this and getting my house/fridge/freezer ready for the festivities, I think I'm about there now, there will be only 4 of us this year but you would think I'm feeding the five thousand the amount of food I have in - well, it is Christmas!

Anyway, here I am back with you sharing another design team card (should have shared this days ago, oops! sorry).  This card uses one of the new Darice embossing folders that were launched yesterday on Create and Craft, this one is the honeycomb one and I can see it as being really versatile for creating fabulous texture in the background of a card.  I used one of the Sheena Douglas sentiments with it, and cut a bee out on my scan n cut using a free download from Birdscards (thank you for that!), I did use a bit of clear wink of stella on the bees wings to give it a bit of sparkle and then just some ribbon and black card for matting and you're done (oh, forgot to say that the card I embossed onto was Core'dinations colourcore card, lovely stuff!).

Anyway, that's it for me for the moment, I promise to try not to leave it so long next time, I will try and remember to show you some of the Christmas cards I have been making.
