It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas!

Just in case you didn't notice we are well into the festive season lol.  So this time the challenge at Stampin' for the Weekend is just that - "Christmas".  This is great for me as I still have quite a few cards to make (the ones for special family & friends).  I kept this card quite clean & simple (mainly cos I didn't have much time).  The papers & flowers were from a Craftwork Cards Christmas goody bag & the snowman is a digital image from DigiStamp Boutique.  I finished the card off with some glitter & pearls.  Our fabulous sponsor this time is Simon Says Stamp & have the chance to win a $20 to spend in their online store - no excuses not to join us ;)

The challenges:
Bunny Zoe - Anything Christmas With Pearls
PaperPlay - Snowman
Creative Card Crew - Tis the Season 
DigiStamp Boutique - December Competition
Bearly Mine - Un-Traditional Christmas
The Paper Variety - Inspired by a Christmas Song (Frosty the Snowman)
ABC - Yipeee Anything Christmassy

I hope you're having a wonderful week.  It's been a bit strange since our youngest son moved out just over a week ago but he has been to tea twice & we've been to visit him once so it's not been so bad (& there is LOT's less washing & ironing lol). Thanks for looking & if you have time to fit in the challenge - good luck :)
