Morning my lovely blog friends.....and what a beautiful JUNE morning it is!
Almost halfway through the year already and by now lots of us crafters are
already thinking about Christmas......eeek! Over at Sparkles Christmas Challenges
we run monthly Christmas themed challenges, any craft is good so long as it
fits that months' theme! You have all month to play & we usually have a fantastic
sponsor prize - this month it's either 1 stamp/1 die OR 2 dies from:
So, this month I got to choose the theme and I chose FAVOURITE COLOUR COMBO
An easy choice for me cos although I'm fairly traditional when it comes to
Christmas my favourite colour combo is blue & brown! Why is it my fav? Well, firstly,
it just is lol....I think it works for male themed cards as well as female & living in a house
with 5 sons it's quite a well used combo in our home decor as well. My sitting room is
a darker brown, with cream & soft blue bits & pieces....it's so restful I love it!
Anyway, enough waffle, back to my card..........Lots of layers, some handmade
paper flowers, wooden snowflake embellies, die cuts.......all my fav Christmas craft things
on one little card! As usual, there's some gorgeous inspiration over on the main blog
here, you can find all rules (not many) and link up your make too!
Rightio, roast beef for dinner today......mmmm, can hardly wait lol, thanks for
calling & whatever you're up to, have a lovely day!
