November Pinterest Project

hi crafty friends,
Phew I just about made it here on time.
today is the day for us to show our November Pinterest project and I've ben running late on everything just lately but here it is......

I made this long stem crochet rose.
its not perfect but I'm still pleased with it.
it needs a couple more leaves but I wanted to get it posted so the next one with have more.
i'm not sure if I will manage a dozen roses as I get bored with the same pattern but I think 6 would look nice together.
Please pop over to see what Margaret has made this month by clicking here
and also visit Carollyn's blog to see her creation. i'm sure you will love them both!
thank you for visiting me today and I hope you like my rose.
you can find the pattern on my pinterst board called Pins and Needles.
leave me a message if you ned a link.
I can't believe we are now about to start December. Margaret, we almost completed our new year's resolution for 2015 and we were lucky enough to have Carollyn join us.
thank you to both of you for keeping me going.
hugs Suzanne xx

Dreaming of a White Christmas

wow we are only one month away from Christmas today.
so its not surprising I have a Christmas card to show you today.
Our theme at creative inspirations is white on white
first, I apologise for my poor photography skills. this dark weather isn't my favorite time of year.
I really need to make myself a light box.
my card looks nicer in real life I promise!
Ive used tim holtz brick embossing folder and a snowflake folder.
the door is a joy crafts die called home sweet home.
the wreath is made with MS branch punch.
the sentiment is crafters companion.
I also added a few gems.
I hope you will join us this week. I will visit as many blogs as I can to see your white cards.
