Today's work!

Another swap! I had to make two butterfly cards. My partner liked Asian inspired art so I used the Calming Garden set (SU - retired). I got to use my Slice cutter and nestibilities for both of these.
Last two are for my Christmas swap. I have one more card in progress for this swap. The snowflake card uses the Ghosting technique - new to me and very easy! The bottom card is a new stamp set and I love it!! I did paper piecing, another new technique, for the chair and for the floor. I had to stamp woodgrain on brown paper, then stamp that with the original stamp before cutting it out. Time consuming but I think it turned out great!
Everyone gets tired just before Christmas!!
Closeup of the "appletini". It looks so real!!
