The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge #38

Good morning! I hope you are all having a good week! We have a new Challenge at The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge but before I go any further I must apologise that my card isn't on the Challenge blog. I was so certain that I'd uploaded it that I forgot to check! D'oh!!!

Anyway, as usual the Challenge is Anything Christmas Goes and here is my card.

The sentiment and images came free with a magazine recently and have a very 'Scandi' feel so I went with red and white. The background paper is from stash and I added white Nuvo drops to the middle of the poinsettias. The embossing folder for the white strip came with the same magazine and I added gold peel-offs to trim the edges and match the gold embossing on the sentiment. I also used an MFT scalloped edge die along one side.

Tonight I am joining my local Mothers' Union members to stitch felt stockings to be filled with little gifts for deprived children in the area, and I've been cross-stitching Scandinavian motifs to decorate them. I'd forgotten how addictive cross stitch can be!

Thanks so much for looking, and enjoy your week!

love Mags B x

So gorgeous Mags. I have had a morning this morning of losing things & they have turned up in the most stupid of places after looking for them for ages. You are not alone sweetie.
