Anything Christmas at CHNC Extra

Less than 2 months to go to Christmas.  If you are not on track with your Christmas cards, head on over to CHNC Extra for some inspiration and then join in with our Anything Christmas challenge for November.  As usual, we are sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps.



I have used an image from Bugaboo Stamps called JJ Christmas - Candy Cane:


I also used two papers from a paper pad by Sugar and Spice Studio.  The smaller piece is an offcut from another card - and I added some candy cane washi tape across the centre of this piece.  I matted with some red cardstock.

Flowery Buttons

I have had a bit of a mixed week - with some good things happening and others definitely not good.  I had a minor car accident last night - nothing worse than a dent and scrape to one side of the car but I'll have the inconvenience of not having the car while it is being repaired.  On the positive side, my first week at my new job has gone well and I'm looking forward to next week.  Hopefully, I'll still have enough time to craft!

Harriet's Lantern

I love this image - she looks so snug all wrapped up against the cold!  Although she wouldn't want to be wearing all that here at Christmas time as it is the middle of the summer months!  Even so, I still create winter themed cards for Christmas!
