CRAFT Challenge #438 Christmas.

Morning, all! I hope your week is going well and that you're looking forward to a good weekend!

Maybe you're planning on making Christmas cards? If so, you're in luck, as Christmas is our new theme at CRAFT Challenge!

The sweet image is Christmas Bella from Paper Nest Dolls. The crown of candles is worn by Santa Lucia, whose feast day is now 13th December - but before the calendar changed in 1752 it was on the shortest day, hence the candles to signify light. A friend of my daughter's is called Lucy and she's a big fan of Santa Lucia, so this is for her!

The papers are from an old pad by Papermania, there is gold foiling and glitter on some of the papers. The sentiment is from the Paper Smooches Christmas Sammpler.

Our sponsors this week are:

All Dressed Up Stamps

and also Paper Nest Dolls

Go and see the gorgeous creations made by my teamies using digis generously given to us by our sponsors!

Thanks for looking!

love Mags B x

This is a sweet card. I didn't know that about the date changing or why the candles were needed. (Never too old to learn!). I have just coloured up an image using the colours in the design paper you have used too. Hugs Mrs A.
