Christmas card time

I am sure that everyone out in blogland has been far more productive than I have been, and has a lovely stack of Christmas cards already made. I have been putting it off for ages, and almost gave myself heart failure yesterday when I realised it's December at the end of this week!

So I've started. Here's my card for this afternoon using lots of bright colours-



 I've once again used my Wild Rose Studio stamp - Milton with Sleigh. He's been coloured with copics and I've used some baker's twine and red wool to tie a silver Christmas tree charm to the card. A few blue crystals, some Kindy Glitz glue glitter to add some sparkle and ta-da!

Entered into the following challenges:

Frosted Designs - Metal
Poodles Parlour - Christmas
Sew Many Cards - Twine
Crazy 4 Challenges - Snow
Meljen's Designs - Twine
Cupcake Inspirations - photo inspiration
(I used all the colours (brown, blue, red, pink & green), used a snowy image, and added the Christmas tree shaped charm)

Until next time,
Tracey

LOL..your comments always crack me up! But I had slight palpitations myself when I read your post...EEEK, already?
You must work extremely well under pressure, because you've knocked this card out of the ballpark! Wonderfully cheerful and festive colors and that gem is a perfect addition to an already gorgeous card. :)
Good luck with all the rest of them. No worries though, you're not alone in the frenzy.
hugs,
Lisa xx
