Take a peek through a christmas window.....

....and what will you see??

Hello everyone, hope you're all well and had a lovely weekend. Mine was nice, uneventful, but fun! This evening I have a little Christmas card for you....I haven't been very good with my christmas challenges over the last few weeks so I decided to crack on and get at least one finished!

Now the main inspiration for this card is the challenge over at Bah! Humbug! this week, where the lovely ladies have asked for a project featuring "through the window". What a cool challenge! The DT have created some lovely cards - go take a peek!

Here is my window scene....

As you know I love easel cards and luckily enough the challenge over at Winter Wonderland is an easel card with sparkle and shine! The ladies have created some lovely cards this week, take a peek! I managed to make mine so shiny that I couldn't take a decent photo without the flash ruining the image slightly - still I hope you get the idea! I've used a selection of patterened, coloured and shiny papers and card to create this window scene. My scene outside the window features two images that I got free with a craft magazine - I never know how to use these when I get them and usually end up with loads of them! So hopefully I've used them well this time!

I've been looking for other Christmas challenges this week and come across two other blogs that I'd also like to enter this card into. There is ABC Christmas Challenge a fortnightly challenge blog where the current theme is P is for presents with the added option of lace....if you peek out of my window you will see lots of lovely pressies waiting to be delivered! I have also found Die Cut Dreams, which is another weekly christmas challenge blog. Their theme this week is snowmen.....I'm hoping they'll let me enter this card even though my snowman isn't that obvious! You should take a peek at both of these blogs for gorgeous cards!

Anyway, I think I'm going to post again with another card in a bit....I've been busy creating a manly card for another challenge, it just needs finishing and then I'll back be!

I agree Wedgie this card is that shiny it glared at me off the screen. However it is simply stunning and I love the window effect with the image. Thank you for playing along with us this week at Winter Wonderland and hope you keep up with the Christmas Challenges, there are a lot of them out there now

Whoops ... let's try that again LOL!

Easel cards are one of my favourites and you have used yours very effectively to create a fabby window card. Really appreciate you showing how to use up those bits'n'bobs that come free with magazines as I have a drawer full of them too - I never know what to do with them either LOL! Thank you for joining us at Bah! Humbug!
