The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge # 41

Hello, my dearios! We have another challenge for you at The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge where it's always Anything Christmas Goes!

The most difficult cards to make at this time of year, I find, are not masculine ones but the totally non-religious ones! I don't mean for my Jewish or Muslim friends but those who are humanist or atheist. I don't know if my card today actually fits our theme, though it will accompany a present of hot chocolate and marshmallows at the end of the month - what do you think?

This adorable image is Christmas in a Cup by Elisabeth Bell. A number of her stamps that were originally rubber are now available as digis.

Instead of traditional greens and reds I used pink and mint, with Wink of Stella added to her sash and bow, and Stickles on the snowman on the cup. I used my corner chomper on the bottom two corners.

I had several attempts before I got the image to print in the right place - I'm not very good at digi crafting! I think the friend it's for will like it!

Go and see my teamies creations and then join in the fun! Winter is coming!

Thanks for looking, and I hope your week is going well.

Love Mags B x

Maggie, this is soooo lovely! I've just coloured up this same image. Such a sweetie. I think your sentiment is perfect for a 'non-religious' creation. So gorgeous hun and I love the CAS finish too. Hugs, Wends xoxo
