(very late) Crafty Friends DT Post

So after ages of my being laptopless, I dug out my aged Macbook from the cupboard, it's very slow and is about three gigantic updates out of date, but until I get my own one back, this will have to do nicely!!! 

Thus, I'm really behind with my DT duties - the Crafty Friends Challenge Blog's current challenge is nearly at an end, but I'm getting up to date with my posting anyway. The theme this time is Blossoms, so to use flowers somewhere on your creation. 
We are sponsored by the wonderful Sami Stamps

and also by the wonderful Toadstool Printables

We were really lucky to be given images from the two sponsors to use for our cards, and I got the absolutely stunning Wildflower Beauty from Sami Stamps.

And here is the card I made. I'm trying my hardest to fit all my images into Christmas cards, to make up for my inadequacy of building up a Christmas stash during the year :P Every year I say "next year I'll make a Christmas card every week" and then when "next year" rolls around, I find myself sweating it in December trying to fit everything in :P Sigh. Maybe next year!
