Here comes another!!

Oh yes...another Christmas card today and a smidgen of frost this morning to go nicely too!!



All of the papers on this card are from Maja Design's Vintage Frost pad (including the rather lovely Father Christmas). I usually feel like I am cheating if I don't colour an image but I've let myself get away with it this time because I made such an effort in other ways. For instance the snowflakes were die cut, frantaged and then layered and I don't usually faff about with twine and charms but it was really nice to have a fiddle!!

 I also found some challenges that don't require colouring so am going to play.


Crafty Calender Challenge - It's all about Christmas
Winter Wonderland - Pick 'n' Mix
(Brads, snowflakes and lace for me)
My Time To Craft #265 - Charmed I'm Sure

Anyway better fly, the blacksmith is coming at 8!!

Have a good one xx

We narrowly avoided a frost this morning, it went down to '0' though so think we will see one before the end of the week.

Love the vintage feel you have achieved to your lovely card Sarah.
