Wishing you a Krafty Christmas!

Hello there!

Happy Wednesday! It's hump day....and that means that after today I only have two days of work left until my week's annual leave is here! Woo hoo! I am so looking forward to having some time off...can you tell?? I'm lucky enough to have lots of plans and so I'm really wishing the days away this week! I'm off to a day spa with Becca, then Joe and I are spending a couple of days on the Isle of Wight...then I'm having a 1950s themed birthday party!

Anyway, I'm not here to bore you with my plans.....no I'm here to tell you about this month's challenge over at Christmas at Sweet Stampin! This month we'd like to celebrate a Krafty Christmas.....with cards or projects featuring kraft paper!

I like using kraft on my projects and so I really enjoyed making this card....

 
I've gone with traditional red and greens to go with my Kraft...which I've used as a card base and a panel in the background. I've coloured my cute image with my Promarkers, adding a little sparkle to the snow with my Stickles. I've added a sentiment and finally some faux white stitches.
 
Pop by the Christmas at Sweet Stampin challenge blog to see all the gorgeous DT cards that have been created this month. While there you can also find out about the fab prize on offer from our sponsor this month....
 
 
I'd also like to enter this card in the following challenges:
 
Stampin Sensations - Special Occasions (a celebration that's not a Birthday!)

Pop by these fab challenge blogs to see the gorgeous DT cards that have been created.

Thanks for popping by today,
Wedgie xxx
