It's anything goes at Whimsy stamps challenge this month - sounds like a good excuse to make Christmas cards to me!!

Hello again

(Please scroll down for my post for The Paper Shelter and Fab'n'Funky Challenges Halloween Challenges) 

Well its a busy old day for me - after being pretty absent for the last week or so - to be honest I think I've lost my crafty gene this week - I've struggled so much and there's not much there!  I haven't even done much blogging so I'm really sorry if I haven't visited you lately - it's nothing personal - honest! - I just need a bit of a kick start I think - though I did manage to come up with this weeks cards ok so maybe I'm on my way back on track - I hope so : )

Anyway - on to this months Whimsy Stamps Challenge

its the old favourite

Anything Goes

We had such a great variety at Whimsy Stamps for new releases this month and us DT girls are lucky enough to get to play with all the new releases every month - we had Autumn, Halloween, Christmas lots of cuties and animals - spoilt for choice really, and so many different styles from our lovely designers. I decided to use anything goes as an opportunity to get another Christmas card stashed away and ready to go! - so I chose this really cute snowman from Crissy Armstrong

The image is called Snowman hold my heart and is available here 

I really like the red/kraftcard combo for Christmas cards - I made quite a few last year and think I might have to check on my kraftcard stocks before I get going on this years.  I pulled out all my Christmas "stuff" from last year ( i find it easier just to pack it all away) and found alsorts of dies and embellies I had forgotten I had - including this lovely snowflake border die also from Whimsy stamps - I think this might get a few outings too

This is what I did...

Image -Snowman hold my heart by Crissy Armstrong at Whimsy Stamps
