Good morning dear friends, another week has flown by and we are another week closer to Christmas lol! It’s just as well I’m part of the winter wonderland challenge DT as I now have a well organised stack of cards ready and won’t be rushing last minute as I normally do. To help you build up your own stash of Christmas cards we have another brilliant challenge over at winter wonderland and we would like to see your cards feature “holly and/or ivy”, it can be as little or much as you like. We know that many of you may not have any ivy so as long as you include holly that will be fine. Here is my card:
Don’t faint I have actually used a real life stamp!! It’s the gorgeous new stamp from Sugar Nellie called “furry friends” and I’ve coloured it with my promarkers. I have a feeling this will be used lots for my Christmas cards this year as it is so adorable yet it doesn’t need much colouring to make it look fantastic. The holly is a sizzix sizzlit die and I’ve added pearls as the berries, which I think looks really nice. A really simple card but the image is so super cute that I didn’t want to take your eye away from it too much.
Our sponsor this week is Simon Says Stamp and the lucky winner will receive a $15.00 gift certificate to spend in their online store.
The rest of the design team have created gorgeous cards once again this week, so please pop over to the challenge blog and check them out. We really appreciate all the lovely comments you leave for us.
