Christmas at Lexis

Good Morning I hope you all had a lovely weekend.  It was very busy at the Trafford Centre yesterday - wow!  Today Dave and I are going down to London to be in the audience of Pointless Celebrities which is a television show for those of you not in the U.K.  I have such a busy week this week and still have one DT card to do for 1st December so I will be flying in and out and trying to craft in any spare minutes!!  I apologise now if I don't get around to you all but I will try my best!

This is my first post for today, I will be back in a minute with my CS hop!

Today sees the start of a new challenge at Lexis Creations and the theme for this fortnight is Christmas.  Here is my card:

I have used a Bildmalarna stamp coloured with Copics and Stickles added, I stamped around the image with a snowflake stamp.  The papers are Nitwits Holiday Bouquet.  The sentiment is also Bildmalarna.  I have used Spellbinders to cut and mat the image.  The tree and poinsettia are Marianne dies.  Here is another view:

We are sponsored this week by Fairy Dust Crafts and please go over to Lexi's Creations to see the rest of the DT's work there are some fabulous creations!

Challenges I would like to enter:

Charizma Cardz - Christmas
ABC Christmas - Winter Wishes
Stamp 'n Doodle - Christmas Friends

Thanks for looking, see you soon!
