Warmth and Wonder

Today (being Wednesday), is the day that Chris (sis-in-law) and I spend together.
One week I go to Chris's and the following week she comes to me.
We usually get lots of projects done on a Wednesday and Chris is a 
really good influence on me as she is a"fast" crafter.
She usually helps me to finish my projects and often cuts out or stamps the odd image for me.
Today has been no exception!
I asked if she would bring along a hostess stamp set that I didn't own,
and "share" some cards that she had made for a card class.
Here is a card that she has designed and made for me (as I was way behind - as usual!)
I just chose the colourway and she did the rest.

The colour combo is Island Indigo, Pool Party, Smokey Slate and White.
The stamp set is Warmth and Wonder (Hostess set from Autumn/Winter Catalogue)
The embossing folder is Petals-a-Plenty, which I think is not unlike a poinsettia in shape.
The paper is the Winter Frost Speciality DSP stack (which is excellent value)
Don't know whether you can see this or not but the flower and snowflake centre
have been highlighted with Dazzling Details Silver Sparkle.
Thanks Chris - my ladies will love making this!!
And thanks for all your help today.
