My Design Teams

If it's Friday it's Christmas card time!

I'm really starting to enjoy my Friday mornings when I get to take a peek at the two Christmas challenge blogs that I regularly take part in! This morning I was confronted by two very different challenges - over at Winter Wonderland they gave the theme "Twas the night before Christmas" and at Bah! Humbug! they asked for cards for a special friend.

I finshed a rather long day in the office and came home full of ideas for these two challenges, but I have to admit I'm not 100% happy with either of  my designs.....especially the special friend one that looks a tad bit too handmade for my liking...but maybe that makes it more special because its a card for my Boyfriend:

I've used papers from my stash to make this card, along with some sparkly dots - you know I can't resist a bit of sparkle!

I'm a bit happier with my second card, which has a modern feel:
I like the idea of a little mouse sitting on presents under the Christmas tree on Christmas Eve....though to be honest I probably wouldn't think it was cute if I actually saw one! I'd probably scream quite loudly!

Right, just a quick post this evening as I'm feeling a bit hot and bothered and staring at my computer monitor isn't really helping the situation! I hope you all have a lovely weekend - I've got a busy one to look forward too!

Thanks for popping by today,
Wedgie xxx

hi Wedgie
we are so lucky to have you playing along each week to show us your lovely creations. I think that both are very creative and love the boyfriend card, I can imagine him smiling when he opens it. The tree is, I agree a very modern card and a great interpretation of our theme at Winter Wonderland this week.
Hugs Kate xx

Love visiting your blog as your cards are always so fresh and fun. That tree is so creative and the snow people one is a real feel good card. Love them both. Don't know how you can be so creative after a long day at work.
