Not long to go...


I just love Christmas - my children are starting to get all exciting about Santa, and so am I!

My Christmas cards are coming along nicely - I've made 8 today already and have just nine left to make!  I can see a few late nights over the next couple of days as I want to spend a little bit more time on these one!

Today the new challenge goes live at Stampin' For the Weekend and the theme is everyone's favourite - Anything Goes!!

We have two - yes two fabulous sponsors this time:


Here's my card - I made it for my best friend at at work.  I love this stamp - I saw it on someone else's blog and knew I had to buy it!!

I love the flowers - I cut them from a cheesecloth type fabric with some a sizzlits die.  I wasn't sure it would cut it - but it did. I've used glamour dust for the snow - it's so lovely but should come with a warning on the bottle that it's going to go everywhere!!

Anyway I hope you can join us for this challenge - can't wait to see what you all create!
