One of many...Christmas card

Well i knew i had to start sooner or later so yesterday was the day. Out came the Christmas stamps and papers and the bling and the charms and the ribbon....does my craft room look like someone dropped a bomb??? oh yes, but did i have fun??? oh yes

This is the 1st card i made using my new stamp set from Little Claire, the idea being that i am going to make lots and lots of them but using different colours. I love easel cards, i think they are a joy to make.

This one is coloured with my promarkers and i have cut the sections of the tree and then used some silicone to raise them slightly from the card.

The charm i bought from a stand at Ally Pally (sorry can't remember the name) but they sold bags of the most amazing charms.

Of course i have to enter it into the challenge over at Little Claire's

also Totally Papercrafts..animal (my little reindeer)

Dream Valley Challenges...monotone

One Stitch at a time..anything goes

Sentimental Sundays

Right off to deliver birthday cards and engagement card, nip to Asda for a battery and then my friend says i have to call in to see her as she has muffins and coffee...well it would be rude not
