A tree for Christmas but not what you'd expect.

Hi folks today is the last of my demo work until my next date in Aberdeen at the end of next month.  Why? 
Well, for those who don't know me the last couple of months I have started to work at my local Marks and Spencer's on a Saturday with the run up to Christmas.  This therefore means a little less demonstrating just now but we will have to wait and see what happens after the festive season.  At the moment I am still the PI demonstrator for the North East of Scotland as most of the stores are still keen for me to visit even if it means during the week or on a Sunday.

I am continuing with my blog as I have lots of crafty ideas to share.  I also make cards locally for the village which has been neglected of late so I intend on refreshing ideas for that too.  I am hoping that I have more time to craft myself as recently I have tended to spend a lot of my own time getting demonstrations up and running....but that is just what I am like.  I love being creative and enjoy sharing and some ideas can't be rushed, right?!

I am booked to visit the Papeterie on Sunday 25th of November, weather permitting and I have yet to speak to Charlotte to find out what I will be up to...it might not even be Christmas!  One thing will be a certain mind.......they'll be some new Spellbinders to share I'm sure.

Back to today and this is the last of my cards from my recent visit to Inverness.

This card has been made using Spellbinder Nestabilities die Fleur de Lis and stamp set by Paula Pascual Christmas tree.  Distress ink Festive berries and bling from my stash. 
A nice easy card to finish on.

That's all from me today I'll be back tomorrow with "What's on your Work desk Wednesday."
Have a super Tuesday.  x

what a striking card Erika - I definitely think you need to keep up the demonstrating - it would be a great loss for the NE Scotland to lose you
