Craft Your Days Away #8

Hiya everyone, I should be takin g Emily to gymnastics this morning but just been out in the car and the indicator lights won't turn on!!!  Felt really scary as I was coming back through traffic lights in the village so am gonna give Hull a miss today - really don't fancy driving anywhere til its fixed.  Good job Pete has come home this weekend though he's not happy at having jobs to do already lol.

We have another fortnightly challenge for you this week at Craft Your Days Away.  The theme this week, set by the lovely Lesley is...........

"Christmas Trees"

Christmas tree(s) can be the main focus point of your project or they can be in the background or maybe just a verse about Christmas Trees there are many ways to interpret this one.

Here's my creation using a freebie from our sponsor Charmed Cards and Crafts and available to download HERE.



As well as using the freebie, I also used "Festive Holly and Mikey" from the Mixed Christmas digi collection which you can purchase HERE.  I have several of the Charmed collections, they are just gorgeous and such amazing value for money.

I used black cardstock from my stash, BG papers and coloured the images with copics and promarkers.  I also added stickles glue which caused me to take another pic this morning in daylight as the snow looked PINK when I took the pic at night with the lights on lol -it was driving me NUTS lol.

I'm entering this card into the following challenge......

Cute Card Thursday - Anything Goes


We do hope you'll be able to join us for our 8th challenge and remember if you would like to be considered for our GD for challenge #10 then please add 'GD' next to your name when adding your entry to Inlinkz on the Challenge Blog. Entries for this challenge close at midday on Friday 26th November.

Have fun and 'Craft Your Days Away'

Hugs

Gorgeous card Mel, love the festive Crimbo tree and cute couple you have used...very nice indeed! The crinkly ribbon on my pink card is a mulberry ribbon that I bought from Crafty Emma's, its brilliant stuff and is so easy to add to your cards...at the mo she only does 3 colours but I think she's hoping to get some others in soon :) Donna x
