Christmas Dance

Good Morning Peeps,

Hope everyone is well and keeping warm now it has changed to very Autumnal weather (here at least).  I haven’t been around much over the last few weeks as I decided to step down from some of my DT challenges, just needed some time to please myself what I did.

Today though I have a card for you for Christmas with the Cuties, where for this month our challenge is:

In the Pink at Christmas 
(Nice easy one we just need to see your pink creations, but don’t forget they MUST be Cute and Christmas)

We have two great sponsors this month:



and



 


For my card I used a LOTV stamp and coloured with Copics, the paper is by My Favourite Things, the scalloped circle die is by Pretty Pink Posh, the star die is by Memory Box and I added glitter, some woven ribbon and greeting tags by LOTV.

Not long to go to Christmas now so hope to see you joining in with us with your Christmas creations

Have a good day.
