Hi guys

The First card is my entry into the  'ABC Christmas Challenge' (Santa's coming to town..)
 hope they like it


well it had to happen sooner than later, Christmas has arrived in my craft room and its starting to feel a little like Santa's workshop with all the images of elves and reindeer scattered round the shelves. Big Thanks to for bringing out such a fabulous selection of Stamps Today I've been busy with their 'Christmas Mischeif' images ranking from suspect Santa's, reindeers, Santa's little helpers to dancing Christmas puddings, (which is one of my favourites) to colour in . Talking of colouring in , My trusty Pro markers and Spectrum noirs  were out for these, along side my Tim Holts Distressing Inks.

These first two are of 'Trainee Santa's' , or wanna be Santa's  maybe, they all look a little young for the real thing and I'm pretty sure the big fella wouldn't forget to put his trousers on the big day!!! These images were a lot of fun to work with and came with the sentiment 'Its the most wonderful time of the year' which you can use on any of your other Christmas cards too always useful to have a few sentiment stamps for the holiday season . They stamp clean and clear with a momento ink pad and I would highly recommend them for new comers to stamping as they don't have too much detail for the beginners to get confused by, but produce charming christmas images



    Favorite Stamp of the day is this one , It comes with the sentiment 'Its beginning to look a lot like christmas and is a pure joy to colour. If you were wondering about the christmas pudding in the top card it is a chocolate orange coated  pudding (Not a burnt one like the hubbie thought!!) which one day I will get round to creating for the festive table. Dont think because there's a bird costumein this stamp it has to be a robin I've done another card featuring a pink fairy, a yellow duck and a custard coated pudding. use your imagination on them, thats when its all about!!!


Santas little helpers , all in green and red and full of christmas joy. Doesnt it make you go all gooey inside and long for cold damp nights and a frosty window .........No, me neither!!! Its hard enough dealing with the British Summers let alone longing for Snow . No, Christmas is grand and I love every minute of it but it can stay in December!!!!!!!
 That gives me 6 more months to make amazing christmas cards for the people I love.
The card above is my entry into the 'Anything Goes' Challenge at Stamp and
 hope they like it xx
