Reminder Post - Challenge #132 Anything Christmas

It's Christmas Time!!!  I love this time of year ...When I was younger it used to be all about the presents and the food, when your a kid what else is there lol.  As I've grown older and had children of my own I love creating the Christmas atmosphere, that feeling of anticipation that something great and magical is about to happen.  I enjoy seeing the pleasure on people's faces when they receive something that they weren't expecting - and so as a family we love giving out Christmas cards which usually have some form of wee gift associated.

This year the kids have been doing a whole of dancing, swimming and sports etc so I had a lot of cards to make.

I went back to a tried and true sketch that I just love it's so versatile - great timing to fit in with the Reminder post for Let's Craft and Create Challenge #132!

Happy Christmas everyone!

Christmas is upon us!

Christmas is approaching fast and I'm quite excited about that.  I love Christmas time and all of the crazy business that comes along with it. So to kick of the Christmas season I have Challenge #12 from Do-Al(1) Kreatives to share with you. 

I've designed this on a craft card base with layers of black dot embossed card and a white wood PL card.  The wreath is a digi stamp donated by DigiStamp4Joy for the purpose of this challenge.

I found this framework of a deer head stamp and loved it, I tried stamping it on some Vellum as I still wanted to be able to see the Wreath in behind it, but I think that some of it gets a bit lost.  Next time I will stamp it on some ash coloured cardstock I think.
