I think this is the last one...

Christmas card that is, not easel card, I won't even bother saying that I will stop making them because I can't! They just look so much more complete, or something, I'm not sure what it is but they are much more satisfying to make. I will try and make this quick (huh!) but it is a busy day today, we just went grocery shopping, we are all going out for dinner tonight for my brothers birthday (we are both December babies so it's a busy month) I have a few more gifts to wrap and cooking to do in between and our air conditioner is not working (which is why the baking I planned to do has not been done yet, I did not want to make it even hotter in the house!) I don't know if I mentioned earlier but we had an air conditioner installed maybe 2 weeks ago, and we have had the guys back 3 times, the first 2 because the vents were not blowing air into one of the rooms (the craft/study :( so not crafting in the heat) and not it has stopped cooling all together! something about not getting enough air flow, blah blah blah, MAKE IT COLD!!! Unfortunately we did not figure out there was a problem until we had a really hot day, ick!
So much for keeping it quick... lol, waffles! I made this card earlier in the week but am only now getting a chance to post. Unwrapped Tilda is getting a little more love as well as my magnolia wreath, with some crystal bling. the sentiment is a kaiser rub on, the flowers I got from spotlight (what a find) and the star charms I found amongst my sewing stash. The Green DP and card stock are from my stash and all other papers are magnolia (yep, I finally cut into them). Ticket sentiment is from Bizzy becs, and I think that is everything :) Card top up a bit closer:
With better light :)

The flowers (no glitter this time) and stars:
