Vintage Christmas


It is soo cold here today.  Yesterday I thought Spring was coming - today it feels it could snow at any moment brrrr.  I managed to make another Christmas card (I must have all of 3 made now woohoo at least it's a start & hopefully will help towards me not having loads to do at the last minute, well that's the plan lol).

This card was made using a Paper Artsy (I think, I've had it ages) rubber stamp which has been glossed with Spray & Shine (I couldn't get a good photo but it looks like a tile), the papers are digi & the ticket was free from Miss Cutiepie.  I distress all the edges & glittered most of them too.  The flower was another dissected flower from a cheap bunch of artificial flowers which I inked & glittered & added some punched foliage, I added a ribbon, bells & the greeting is from Raindrop Echo.  


The challenges:
Sparkle- Punches
Critter - Sentiment
Pear Tree - Ribbon
Allsorts - Homemade Flowers
Corrosive - Distressing
Shelly's - Ribbon
Craft Us Crazy - Winter
Anything Goes - Distressing
Frosted Designs - Use Metal
Jingle Bells - Text Me
Crafty Hazelnut - Let's Get Sentimental


Ooh while I'm here I'd just like to show you some new digi designs from Gerda at StampFairy, these are called "Patsy April Showers", isn't she just so sweet (I love the one with her umbrella blow inside out).  Have a great week everyone :o)
