Another for the Christmas box

Hello peeps. It's Friday and the forecast looks good. The blacksmith is coming this morning to put the shoe back on the pony now that she has fully recovered so I can get back in the saddle again...weather permitting!! I am still on track with my mission to produce one Christmas card a week and here is my latest make.



The adorable stamp is Maggie and I got her in the Funky Kits Sale. She is coloured to match the papers. The ribbon came from a wonderful little local shop called Butterfly Bright they have such treasures!!

The inspiration came from these lovely challenges

Divas by Design - Rubber stamps only
ABC Christmas - D for diecuts (SB circles and Tonic layered scalloped circles)
Charisma Cardz #4 - Inspired by a movie
Miracle on 34th Street - My little girlie is as cute as Susan!!

That's all for now. Have a lovely day xx

What a sweet image Sarah, she definitely has a look of 'Susan' about her. Such a crisp and clean colour combo, and I see you have another embossing folder I need!! (Grrrrrr!) :) xx

The gingham gives such a lovely fresh feel to your pretty card Sarah.

Hope you baked a cake, we have had the same farrier for years and when the children were still at school I was always baking and he always used to pop his head in the kitchen to see what was on offer. But as they grew up and got into their serious athletics cakes became taboo so apart from the odd occasions the only time I bake now is when the farrier comes. Keeps my hand in I guess.
