Hello Christmas

Good morning blogworld

So, here we are then 1st December - let the manic Christmas card making start!

But just before we do - it's time for a new challenge over at the Flat Friends Challenge - and remember that you don't need to use an Emma Canning image anymore.  Although if you do you there is an extra prize on offer!

So what's the challenge this time - it's a colour challenge and a great colour choice at that!

And here's my card - as I said above even though it's Christmas card making time, I deviated and made this instead.  Although I used a Christmas image from Emma and it could be for a Christmas birthday?

Here's the card:

 The arty farty shot:
I used:

Digi Stamp:
Flat Friends - Christmas Shopping
coloured with my ProMarkers

Memory Box

Winter Wonderland (had them for ages and I'm almost out!!)

Anything else?

You know that green isn't looking too green at the moment - it's looking more blue, I can assure you though it is green.  Maybe though a mint green rather than a green green and the picture isn't picking it up so well.

Hope everyone is having a good weekend - I'm off now to put up the Christmas tree and associated decorations!!


A challenge, or two:

Papertake Weekly: Sketch Time (I used sketch #85)

Aud Sentiments Challenge: Challenge 94 - Any Sentiment
