Christmas Cheer

Evening All,

Hope you are well and looking forward to the weekend! I thought I'd aim to get a card posted early this evening rather than at gone 11pm when I should be winding down!

I've used a fab sketch provided by Sweet Sketch Wednesday for my card today.....


Its a lovely sketch thats looks brilliant when finished, but was actually quite easy to put together. The main inspiration for the theme came from the Creative Cottage Challenge blog....can you guess the theme?? Yes, it's Christmas! I've used very traditional colours for this card and I didn't need a sentiment as my backing paper has my message on! My poinsettia trio in the corner is inspired by Die Cut Dreams who have called for poinsettias in their challenge this week.

If you are stuck for ideas for any of these challenges pop by the different blogs and see what the brilliant DT came up with!

Right, I'm being spoilt this evening....mum is cooking dinner for me....I've got meatballs and they smell wonderful....I'm off for some dinner!

Thanks for popping by today, see you soon!
