The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge #65 Anything Christmas Goes.

Good morning! It's so cold today, and the last dregs of Storm Ciara mean it's also quite windy still. My heart goes out to those suffering from the floods, I can't imagine how awful it must be to lose everything like that. I hope the Powers That Be get off their bottoms and do something to prevent it ever happening again.

However, life goes on, and today it's time for a new challenge at The Holly and Ivy.

I have used items from the December 2019 card kit by Simon Says Stamp.

The sentiment is from the Gnome for the Holidays stamp set and I used the adorable Lil' Gnome die to paper piece the image, colouring his nose and beard with Copics. All the papers came with the kit. I added a red and gold ribbon from my stash to 'ground' the Gnome.

As usual my teamies have made some fabulous cards in all kinds of styles to inspire you, so do go and see!

Thanks for looking, and have a good day!

love Mags B x

This is lovely Mags. I hate to say it but there is another storm on the way, I have forgotten the name. It might not reach you but it is sure going to come to us!!!

What a fabulously cute, charming and fun design. Love the use of classic white and black gingham print paper for the background.

Oh I love your little gnome Mags, what a fab card! Hope you're escaping the worst of Storm Dennis too, sounds like he's going to dump an awful lot of rain round England and Wales :(
