Feeling Christmassy... but simple...

Morning all!

It's a damp coldy morning here in Telford! But the sun is looking like he want's to come out to play!
My DT Buddy Gemma is coming over to mine today to play in my new craftroom yay!!! she's very excited!! hehe.

My chest seems to be alot better today tho i'm still coughing alot but mainly at night (hubby says he's gonna suffacate me keeping him awake :-( ) not very nice is it???! hehe


Anyways... I'm here with a little christmassy project that actually only took me about twenty minutes (that's shocking for me when it normally takes anywhere between 2-5 hours per card) lol but there's no colouring on today's card.

I saw a fantastic Challenge at the Allsorts Challenge Blog there challenge this week is to 'keep it simple'. And as many of you know that's not my style so i thought i'd be different and have a go at it, and to be honest i like the results and it wasn't that difficult as i thought it would be... tho i must admit i'm one for keep adding things to my card!

I dug out my Stampin' Up 'dasher' stamp that i 'HAD' to have this time last year and I regretfully have to say it's seen ink about erm once!! maybe twice! But it's such a lovely stamp and with the simpleness of my card i think he's going to be seen on alot of my christmas cards this year! (i've sooooo many to get made) but i'm lacking christmas mojo as per norm!

So yeah.... i used my lovely embossing folder (from hello kitty) too which these i have loads but i always always forget i have them (does anyone else do that?) some gorjuss ribbon that i picked up for about 50p pm a few weeks back whilst out shopping with my DT buddy and good friend Emma, and of course the little gems, my cards wouldn't be compleate without gems now would they......

I'll stop ramberling now as i've got to go get my craftroom in a state of tidyness (yep it's a mess) lol before Gemma gets here!!! hehe

Wow! I love this card - the layout you've used looks fabulous especially the way you've used part of the die. My Christmas mojo doesn't usually kick in until about Boxing Day LOL!
I hope you've had a fabulous day crafting with your DT buddy.
Love, Andrea xx
