Christmas cuties

Hi there - its Sunday Morning and the Christmas Fair is over!!!!! Bliss. We had a really good day - not sure how much we will have raised but I'm hoping for around £400. We'll just have to wait and see! My girls had lots of fun too and so did all of the other children so I think that's what matters really!

My card for today includes an image from the Crafters Companion Mulberry Wood series - I think its super cute - love it.


I've coloured the image in promarkers and cut it out using mum's spellbinders die - The backing paper is from a free stack by raspberry road. The sentiment says Christmas is a time for family and friends - too true.

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

Crafters Companionccmonthlychallenge: Fave colour scheme - I've gone for the traditional red and green of Christmas.
Kraftyhandskraftyhandschallenge: Christmas in November
Incy Wincyincywincydesigns: Hip to be square (don't worry if you think this card isn't square - I know its based on a square shape but I guess it depends how rigorous you are!)
DTDdudetimedoodles: Happy Holidays
Whimsywhimsyinspires: Traditional Christmas colours
audsentimentschallengeblog bingo: ribbon, bling, snow.
CACBcraftyannschallengeblog: Birds and/or animals
Polka doodlespolkadoodle: any die will do
Delicious doodlesdeliciousdoodleschallenge: something that flies - there are two birdies in the picture!

Thanks for dropping by today and for any comments you leave - I do love to read your comments!

Big Hugs
