CD Sunday Challenge

The challenge at CD Sunday this week is trees and shrubs and I hope this digital stamp from Just Inklined The Next Big Thing fits the bill. The trees sentiment is from a gardening set of rubs ons.

Step into Christmas

My card is based on the photo inspiration at Winter Wonderland this week. Purple/Lilac are colours I rarely use but I am quite pleased with the finished card.

I decided to try something new and very different for me for the challenge of angels at Crimbo Crackers. I merged this free image from the Graphics Fairy with Paper from the Digital Scrapbooking Studio then added some lace ribbon flowers and a small length of beads.

Christmas Crafting May Challenge

The challenge at Christmas Crafting this month is sponsored by Di's Digi Downloads and was chosen by Morgan.The challenge was to use 'Twas the Night Before Christmas' poem as our inspiration.
I found my free image here after  long search and chose it because the mouse was reading "The Night Before Christmas" book.

The background frame is from Nitwit Collections.
