Origami Star card and patchwork tree.

Hey lovley peeps, Hope everyone is enjoying there week so far, its almost the weekend! Lol
Things are quietening down here now after Kim had his ear operation and Scott is almost over the neumonia he had, I almost got a full nights sleep last night!!
Thats almost worth writing down in the book!
Without further a do, onto what this blog is about... the crafty stuff :)
I am working on chirstmas cards at the moment (for a change).
For this first card I folded some nice thin papermania paper into a star shape
OR-I-GA-MI style
The ribbon is from Panduro, and the stamp is from mmmmm my cupboard... no that won't do, my brain seems to be somewhere else today, it must be in shock of having had some sleep!
erm hehe I can't find the stamp now either! I give up, anybody know where its from??!

Next I wanted to try out some patchwork style work again and ended up making this tree card.....

and a close up...

Lol and i've just realised that I have taken a photo of this card before it was finished!
I was feeling that there was something missing but didn't want to loose the simpleness of it,
in the end I embossed the text 'God Jul' in the top righthand corner which helped alot.
These lovley packages are from Magnolia and the crimbo tree is made from papermania scraps :)
Both cards are painted with Tim Holtz distress reinkers.
Back with more soon!
And just before I go I want to say Thank you sooo much for all the lovley comments you ladys give me, I really enjoy reading them :)
Hugs Nina xx

ps. How funny that so many of you thought It was a real pepperkake in my last post, I am flattered that some thought that I could have written that text with icing!! I think I might of been a
'masterchef cake lady'
if I had! hehe :)
