Preparing for the coming season

 Well September is upon us so it's time to start thinking ahead to Christmas....at least from a crafty point of view anyway!

I made this card using a freebie stamp that came with a magazine this month and, to be honest I couldn't wait to stamp it out as I love Tiddly Inks.
I wanted some nice bold colour so I hot out my Graph It pens as they are a bit more opaque and set to work with some festive greens and reds.

Friday sketches had a sketch that is right up my street this week, so I used that for the layout and grabbed a few of my Do Crafts backing papers to finish the job.

So - now it's time to enter a few challenges and here they are:
