  4. Morning Lillian. I really like your Christmas card design. Well done. I think the photo of the red and orange i9n the sky is something to do with the temperature really high up, and ice crystals being up there, and the sun shining through a bit like a rainbow. Is the name sundogs??? Not sure... I'm happy to stand corrected!
    Take care. God bless.

  5. Lots of lovely craftiness. Love the diamond painting (I am intrigued). Thanks for sharing today - Hazel, WOYWW 472 xx

  6. Love the cards, but can't think about Christmas yet - it's too hot!
    Those gilding flakes are terrible aren't they - I once opened the lid on a tub while my ceiling fan was on and for several amazing minutes I thought I was in a snow globe! I'm still finding them years later!
    Hope you have a great week,

  7. Hi Lillian, smiled about the flakes- they just go everywhere- even a heavy breath sends them all over the room. Have a lovely week, Hugs, Shaz#8 XxXx

  8. Hi Lillian, Lovely cards. Your craft table looks very busy.

    Lovely Diamond Painting.

    The sky has had some beautiful colours lately.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.

    Happy WOYWW

  10. Hi Lilian - lovely entries for those challenges - I'm sure I could get myself in the Christmas spirit at this time of year though, but at least you'll be well prepared when the time comes! Thanks for your visit earlier! Happy #471! zsuzsa #22

  11. Hi Lilian, gilding flakes are not something I have used yet. I think I will resist the temptation if they go everywhere. Glitter is bad enough! I haven't heard of diamond painting but it certainly looks lovely. Thanks for stopping by earlier and have a lovely week Heather x #15

  12. I've not yet tried guilding flakes but I know the results are beautiful. I've been curious about the diamond cross stitch... but really don't have the pennies for another craft right now lol!

  14. Your diamond painting is gorgeous, but they look like they take a lot of patience and time to complete. I also love your sweet card with the soothing color scheme and imagery. Blessings!

  15. Hope you manage to clear up all those gilding flakes soon Lilian, they do get everywhere! Have a good week. Sarah #16
