Welcome to the November Creating Kindness blog hop!  Joining us this month is guest designer Sue Plote.  I have had the pleasure of designing with Sue on another DT, so it is great to be hopping with her again.  I love everything Sue creates!

We are having fun with different card folds this month and I have tried my hand at a Double Z Fold for the first time (I think lol).  I am also taking the beautiful Christmastime is Here suite of products for another spin.  I can't stop using it!  You can see some more posts HERE and HERE if you want more ideas!  If you love it as much as I do, then visit my Online Store to grab yours before it runs out of stock and use Host code 62V9HXKS during November for more rewards from me!

To create my card, I used a standard metric cardbase of 29.7cm x 10.5cm and scored at 7.4cm and 14.8cm to create the Poppy Parade base.  The Mossy Meadow card was cut to 26cm x 8.5cm and was scored at 6.5 and 13cm.  All Whisper White and Designer Series Paper mats were cut 5mm less, all the way around and adhere to the two bases before these were adhered together.

I used an Aqua Painter and various inks (listed below) to watercolour the gorgeous Christmas Rose on Shimmery White card before cutting it out with the coordinating die in the suite and finishing with coordinating embellishments.

Next up on the hop is my good friend Lou in Australia.  I am looking forward to seeing what fun fold she has chosen to share with us!
