Blue Christmas

Back today with examples from another mini batch of Christmas cards I made (just the 4 this time) when I was at home last Friday. these ones are a very cool colour scheme - pretty much in keeping with the extremely cool (ie perishing) weather we are experiencing here at the moment ... when I poked my nose outside this morning it was -3 degrees centigrade - wow!

Anyhoo here are my cards ...


These are actually just a variation on a design I made using kraft card back in the summer - here.


Stamps: LotV Christmas sentiment circle;
Papers: LotV "Frosty Christmas";
Supplies: ribbon and gems from my stash;
Tools: Memory  Box "Flowering Christmas Tree" die; Martha Stewart "Eyelet lace" edge punch.

Challenges:
Crafty Boots - Christmas
Dream Valley #47 - Christmas
Cupcake #222 - Merry Christmas
Everybody-Art #217 - Anything Goes
Bearly Miine #65 - Anything Goes
Challenges4Everybody #9 - Anything Goes

Hope you are all keeping safe and warm.
Hugs

    P.S. That 3 degrees C sounds wonderful! I love the cold, and hate summer. It is almost 2am here, and it is still quite hot... 38 C predicted for us tomorrow!
