Another Christmas Card (at last)


I am so behind with my Christmas cards (I don't know how I started making them in January lol) so I am really glad that this week's challenge at The Paper Shelter is "Christmas Fun".  The image I used is called Christmas Gifts & I coloured it with ProMarkers.  The papers are digi & I finished off with a die cut Poinsettia, pearls, pompom, ribbon & a lil bag. If you use an image from The Paper Shelter you have the chance to win a $20 gift certificate & even if you don't & you are picked you can chose 3 images of your choice from the shop. The other DT members have made some wonderful creations so why not check them out & get lots more inspiration :)


The challenges:
Sparkle Creations  - Christmas Card (optional liquid applique)
Winter Wonderland - Clean & Simple Christmas Card
By The Cute & Girly - Christmas Girls
Gem of a Challenge - Cold & Frosty
Sew Many Challenges - 2 Different Backing Papers
Papertake - Anything Goes (optional bling)
Crimbo Crackers - Anything Goes (Good Luck Ruth!)
Bah Humbug - Die Cuts
Kaboodle Doodles - Sassy Girls
Crafter's Companion - Let It Snow
The Ribbon Girl - Christmas
Cupcake Craftroom - Sweet Christmas
Pixie Cottage - Christmas Card


I hope you're all having a good week.  Are any of you going to the Hobby Crafts show at the NEC at the weekend?  I'm going Saturday & Sunday with my DIL Zoe (my son & hubby are in charge of the children) & as we're all staying in a hotel for a couple of nights no cooking or cleaning for me either (& yummy cooked breakfast) - can't wait.
