21 degrees outside - a great day to think about Christmas!


We have lovely weather here in my neck of the woods - it's Saturday morning, the sun is shining and we are expecting a temperature of a heart warming 21 degrees today……fantastic for the UK in May!

So what do I decide to do….well post up a Christmas card of course!

You know I popped on to someone else's blog today and they had a days 'till Christmas counter….apparently 222 days to go. I guess I don't have to panic about Christmas cards just yet then!

Here is a card that I made some time ago, using some stamps that Stamp Addicts sent to me.

I love the Santa - he is one of my favourites  and really nice  to colour if you want to get practicing with a bit of shading.

The trees are also a stamp and I used multi tonal ink pad and then finished them of with a coating of Crafters Companion glitter spray.

So - time for a few challenges:
