Christmas is Coming!

Well its a new month so its time for a new theme at Make My Monday and this month the challenges have been chosen by my friend and fellow DT member, Suzi B.  The whole month is to be dedicated to:-  C H R I S T M A S - which suits me perfectly as it will get me started on my Christmas cards.  This week's challenge is to create a piece of art or craft with a:-

Vintage / Traditional Christmas theme!

My 8x8 card has been made using the new Bo Bunny papers; Snowy Serenade and Noel Cheer. 

I have added machine stitching, lace and embossed stamped text and sentiment (cannot remember the name of the stamp sorry) and a pointsetta die from Marianne Creatables (LR0122) which have also been embossed.  Distress stickles were added to the Santa Claus.

I have really enjoyed making this card and am really pleased with the results.

I hope you can join us at Make My Monday - there is another lovely prize on offer this month and there is also a DT call.  I would also like to welcome MYNETTE who has joined us this month as Guest Designer.  I hope you visit her blog - Mynette is such a warm positive person who creates lovely cards.  Look forward to seeing you there.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:-




Thank you in advance for your comments - I apprecite every one of them!  Suzanne ~x~

Hi Suz! Your Christmas Card is just over the top, drop dead gorgeous! I just love all the details. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving kind words re: my entry for challenge 23. My husband's overnight in the hospital turned into a nine-day stay, resulting in me missing challenge 22 as my card supplies were back home! Life happens. The good news is DH is recovering more each day. Take care! Yvonne
