I have to...

.. I really have to pull my finger out and get some Christmas cards done. I am terribly behind with them and although we don't post many I still have plenty to give out. But the good news is I have made an extra one to go with the few I have made earlier in the year. I made it for Kristina's colour challenge, this week you had to use Real Red, Sahara Sand( comes in the neutral pack), Very Vanilla and Whisper White. Pulled out a stamp set that I have had ever since joining up *Lovely as a tree* for this one, Polka Dot background and the sentiment from *Season of Joy*, Kraft taffeta ribbon and silver brads. The trees were white embossed and the red layer was distressed( just like I am at the moment haha). I do love the combo I have to say so thank you Kristina. Also wanted to ask those of you that live near the DN14 9QZ postcode, would you want to come to my Christmas Extravaganza event on the 6 of December? Ask me for more details if you are interested. Till tomorrow bye bye. M xxx
