It's Christmaaaaas!



Well, it's not Christmas yet, but it won't be long! So far I have wrapped 1 (one!) present! My son's birthday is December 5th so I tend to be a bit distracted until after that!

Cardmaking, though, tends to get intensively Christmassy rather earlier. Here's another 8-incher! The papers and sentiment came from a magazine freebie but I'm sorry I can't remember which :(

The sweet Christmas images are The Greeting Farm. I coloured in Speccies, and Glamour Dusted all the fluffy fur trim on their outfits. The mats behind them are cut with a Nesties die and embossed in a daisy pattern with my faithful Cuttlebug.

I used more die-cuts on this card: the Memory Box Frosty border, a Marianne Poinsettia set, and a Magnolia doo-hickey swirl. They all came from Crafts U Love I Glamour Dusted the swirl and border, and added Stickles to the veins of the flower. The stars are Paperchase.

The sketch is from Inspirational Card Sketches and as soon as I saw it I knew it would be perfect for these matched TGF images!

I also knew it would have to be a big card to get all the elements in, which has been a bit strange for someone who thinks a 6 inch one is a bit big! I have about a hundred 5 inch card blanks in my stash, so now I need to think mini again!! But we live and learn in this crafting malarky, don't we?

I'll be back tomorrow with a new Dream Valley Challenge, so I'll C ya then!

Thanks for looking and sleep well!

love, MagsB x

PS I can't find my list of Spectrum Noirs anywhere! Sorry!
