Creative Card Crew Challenge ~ Celebrations

Wow a week has gone by already! And can you believe that there are Christmas adverts on the tv already?(Advertising a Christmas Candle!) How scarey is that? Spookier than halloween!
Anyway, enough about Christmas, the theme on the Creative Card Crew Challenge this week, which was set by the lovely Nicola, is 'Celebrations' so guess what I made? A Christmas Card lol! But you can choose any celebration you like and us crafters all love to celebrate don't we? You can even get cards to celebrate your divorce these days, so have fun with this challenge, can't wait to see what you come up with. We are so lucky to be sponsored this week by the cutting cafe check out their gorgeous printable stamps!

Ok, back to my card, I have used my newest Stampin'Up stamp set 'Seasons of Joy' I just love love love it! The cardstock is Real Red and Old Olive, with Old Olive Ribbon and I have done a bit of the ole faux stitching with a white gel pen, I plan to make these in bulk as they were so quick to make, for more of my Christmas cards using this set check out my Stampin' Up blog, they will be on their tomorrow, thats today to you as I'm scheduleing my post lol. Hope you find time to join us this week, check out the design teams creations for some amazing inspiration, one of them will be celebrating a special birthday this weekend, Sharon, but don't tell her I told you! happy crafting. x
