An obvious thing to do ...

It's St. David's Day, the sun is shining and there are tentative signs of spring in the air .... so what could be more obvious than to make a Christmas card lol?

Actually this isn't as crazy as may at first appear ... the current theme for the Sugar Bowl Challenge #5 is Christmas, and boy do they have a fab prize on offer for one lucky winner! Not only that, but only own two SN stamps (so far!!) and they are both Christmas images ... so what's not to like?

Here is my card: I used SN "Juggling Snowman" for my main image; sentiment is by Stamps Away; paper is by Daisy Bucket; snowflake is Cuttlebug cut'n'emboss folder; ribbon, brad and gems from my stash. I'm also trying to get my money's worth from my new MS punch lol! so I thought the shape and holes mirrored the arc of the snowballs quite nicely!

Thanks for looking! Just off out shopping now so I hope to be back in time to do a bit of blog hopping later

  8. Love it Pauline! I'm using my new ms punches to death too (to be seen later on some of my DT items this week). That stamp is such a fun Christmas one and the colours you've chosen are superb. Delish irridescent paper too. Hope you're keeping well.
