Friday, August 6


Well it's not really, I do know that, but I've found a couple of Christmas challenges to play along with and use up some old Christmas stash which could leave a gap for more?

Moving Along With The Times #58 has a general 'Christmas' theme and Caardvarks have a Christmas tag/mini card with stamping challenge. So I've made this little set of 2 cards and 2 tags.
I've tried to emulate the sophisticated feel of the DT cards at Caardvarks, well I did say 'tried'! The stamp I've used is an old free one from a magazine - my box of Christmas stamps is still well buried at the moment.

The papers are old one's from Anna Griffin, the 3d holly and the ribbon is from the same set.

I received the punched hearts in a rak but I suspect they are Martha Stewart. the black border is of course good old threaded water from Fiskars.
