Getting into the Christmas Spirit ....

..... now that we're more than half way through November, I am most certainly getting into the Christmas Spirit.  And the card I'm sharing with you today is a Christmas card that I've made for three challenges:
  1. St Luke's Charity Card Challenge - where we'd like you to make a Christmas card any theme you like!
  2. Colour Q - cQc111 - super colours
  3. Clean & Simple - FTL166 - a lovely sketch













While I really like the Colour Q challenge colours, they really are quite autumnal and, as I wanted to make a Christmas card, I decided to have only a splash of the Pumpkin Pie and Crumb Cake.  I concentrated on the Pear Pizzazz and Rich Razzleberry.  I started off by making the bottom and backing panels for the card.  I used the lovely Nordic Winter set from Waltzingmouse and stamped the images in Rich Razzleberry.  I kept the tag quite simple as I wanted the stamped image to really stand out.  I stamped the image in Rich Razzleberry onto white card, cut it out using my nesties and coloured the edge of the panel.  I layered this onto some Crumb Cake and Pumpkin Pie card.  Finally I punched a hole and added some matching ribbon.


I must apologise for the quality of the photo - it's dark and I'm having to do the best I can with my desk light!!  I think I'd like a light box for Christmas :)

Stamps:  Waltzingmouse - Seasonal Remedies, Nordic Winter
Inks:  Stampin' Up! - Rich Razzleberry
Spellbinders:  Mega Rectangles Lg (S4-142) #2
Accessories:  Stampin' Up! card in Pear Pizzazz, Crumb Cake and Pumpkin Pie; Ribbon and card base from stash

There's still plenty of time to join in with our challenge over at St Luke's Charity Card Challenge - this month we'd like you to make a Christmas card - any theme you like!  And there's a prize too - we have a couple of lovely stamps donated by Lili of the Valley Stamps - they're just fab!  Do join us!!

That's all for now - Mum and I are going into town this morning - last chance before Mum goes home!!  See you later.

Very inventive with those colors for the Xmas theme - I like your backgrounds which really do remind of cross stitch.

This is absolutely gorgeous Deborah - and who would have thought those colours would work so well for a Christmas card?! I have a little pile of cards waiting to be sent off to St Lukes ... must get those off.
