Challenge #11 - It's Christmas!

Hi friends, hope you're all well and's ever so cold here
which I suppose adds to the Christmas feeling. Wouldn't it be lovely if we had
a sprinkling of snow......just from Christmas Eve through to Boxing Day though!
Well, we made it all the way to December & if you haven't got your
Christmas craft on yet what are you waiting for? I'd love you to come join
me for my last challenge of the year where the theme is........


My make this time is a little card on a stand........there's a little die cut stand
attached to the back so it will stand on it's own. I used die cut layers, a topper
matted onto some gorgeous teal coloured card then finished with a die cut 
sentiment and some faux gems.

This month I have my lovely blog buddy Chris from
and here's one I made earlier joining me as Guest Designer and oh
my, she's made a beauty this time. Chris always makes the loveliest cards 
but her make this time is so, so lovely........a Christmas album for her
DIL.......what a lucky lady!

I love the colours too.......a gorgeous combo!

1 - You must follow the theme set
2 - One entry, new makes only
3 - You must be a follower of this blog
4 - Please link your entry post back to this blog

So whether your style is frilly & fancy, CAS or even grungy & gritty you
can enter your make.....and as usual, there'll be a surprise prize for the
lucky winner. And if you fancy joining me as a guest designer then just add
GD after your name!

Good luck!

p.s - I'll be back tomorrow with last month's winner.......also, I will be closing this challenge a little earlier than usual........Dec 28th, 10pm.
