"Another Tree Decoration"

Hello Bog  friends, hope you are all enjoying your weekend. 
Thank you for taking the time to pop in to see what I have been up to.
I have far more followers than I ever thought possible.  If I do not get to you for a few days please forgive me.  This is all meant to be good fun so let`s keep that way.  Visit when you can I love it when you call but I fully understand the pressures we are all under at the moment.
The forecast for this area from Monday is horrendous, I really am not looking forward to it.
My friend arrived and returned home safely, she does not leave my house till after midnight.  She had strict instructions to Text me as soon as she got home.  She lives about 20/25mins drive away, I would not have slept if I did not know she got home. 
Another busy day here with the boys.  Grandpa had to deliver some things along to their house this morning.  We knew mummy was working so we were prepared for the request Grandpa would get......................."Can we come back to your house please".  Back they came, daddy walked the dogs then he came along and we all had lunch.  I really thought that I might also be serving up the evening meal.   No! daddy had been cooking so he was all organised for that.  Tell you we have to be prepared for all eventualities in this house, thank goodness for "freezers".

I posted a "Pink" Tree Decoration during the week, which I did for  "In The Pink Challenge".  That one is now hanging on my dining room door.   I just thought I would let you see the "standard" ones I do.   I try to do them all a little different even if it is only the colour of the bead in the centre, hate doing two the same of anything. 

Again this one is using the Spellbinder Lacy Doily Motifs
I do them white which I think looks nice and fresh.
They also look good done in Gold and Silver
I use an empty Ribbon Spool in the centre
You need 2 Large, 2 Medium and 1 Small Die Cuts for both sides
I also have the "Accents" which gives you the edge Die.  I cut the edge twice to create the rosette in the middle.  You could use any edge Die you have to do this.

That`s it for today
Thank you for calling by I really appreciate it

  17. Morning Patricia, I absolutely adore your tree decorations, do you have any piccies side on, you say you use an empty ribbon spool in the centre, but can't get my head around how you do that (it's an age thing you know) ha ha. I spent yesterday setting up my outside christmas tree lights and lights over the windows at the front, and christmas tree lights out the back aswell this year. I have three growing christmas trees, that have been repotted over the years and they are getting quite big now, they look lovely at night covered in the lights, I can't help going out there to admire them ha ha, but it cheers up the dark nights and feels inviting.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  18. Just beautiful Patricia and so clever you must take a picture of your tree with all your decorations on it...


  19. Hi Patricia,
    fabulous creation. I wish I had these dies to have a go.
    Any chance of a tutorial after Christmas. I say after Christmas because I know we are all pushed for time on the run up to Christmas.
    Thank you for yours and Hazels concern about me.
    I hope your weather isn't causing you too much trouble.
    Oh the joys of living in Scotland, at least the air is nice and clean up there.
    My friend never needed her inhaler while we were holidaying there.
    Have a wonderful crafty Sunday.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
