Live & Love Crafts # 12 - Birthstone - January Garnet

Hi everyone, hope you are all having some really good weather?

It's started to really feel like winter here in Melbourne we've had Frost - okay it hasn't lasted long but to my Pommy eyes its gorgeous having been born in January in the UK I love it!

My birthstone is Garnet/Amethyst as I am on the cusp (20 January), I much prefer Amethyst but have made my card Red to resemble the garnet, this maybe because I have made a few cards in purple lately..

colour she is wearing she wears it with grace, I wonder what cute present she is hiding...
