Christmas in May

Good morning all! Thankyou so much for all of your kind comments and ongoing support - they really do mean alot to me - especially on a grey bank holiday Monday - what else would it be hey??? I've set my two girls off crafting - they've both got a birthday card to make for their gramps so hopefully I'll be able to get this done.

I was up in my little attic last night crafting away  and so I've got two posts to share with you today and this first one is a Christmas card - I've had the stamp I used in this card for a long time now - it came in a TSV from QVC - stamps from Kanban - anyway - here is its maiden voyage out of the packet - and I'm wondering why I haven't used it before now!

I've used some papers from my stash and hunkydory sentiment, the image is kanban.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Sparkles Christmas Challenge: Trees
Mishelflo Challenge Blog: Celebration
Chocolate, coffee cards: Sketch
Winter wonderland: Photo inspiration (I've taken the colour)
Crazyhazlenuts christmas challenge: Stripes (mesh stripes and also glitter stripes on my angels' wings!).

I'll be back later with a scrapbook page! Hope you have a good day!
