Christmas - No Thanks!

Hello there and a big welcome to my blog.  Some sad news today this will be our last challenge at A Little Bit Crafty.  The lovely Paula who's brainchild it was and who does such a fantastic job of running it and organising the fabulous sponsors just does not have enough time to carry on as she has a very young family and new home.  I would like to thank Paula for inviting me to be on the DT when she started two years ago I have loved it and will miss the challenge.  So for our very last challenge we have a nice easy one - with a bit of a twist:  Anything Goes - but not Christmas!!!!


My sister has just completed her Masters and got a distinction!  It is her Graduation on Saturday so I have made a card for her.  She sometimes looks at my blog so I am hoping she doesn't from now til Saturday lol!! I used Centrura Pearl for the card and ran it through a Die'sire Chevrons Embossing Folder.  The sentiment is Clearly Besotted embossed in Gold embossing powder and I think the rest is pretty clear!


We have some fabulous sponsors this month:


Marianne Design - Mystery Prize


Waltzingmouse Stamp - Prize to be arranged


Joanna Sheen - £10 Gift Voucher

Some fabulous prizes from some of my favourite companies!! Hop over to  A Little Bit Crafty  to see the rest of the DT work for more inspiration and remember you have almost a month to enter.  We would love to see you for our very last challenge!
