Clean & Simple Christmas Cheer

Whoop! It's Friday!

This week has just flown by, so we are a few more days closer to Christmas! I'm back today to share a card I made using some NEW Papertrey goodies & some old faves aswell!

I found a NEW to me challenge forum HERE called The Outlawz, I thought I'd join in on the fun over there. Sunday's challenges are CAS. This weeks challenge is to use your favourite stamp! Well, as you can imagine I have a few of those! Anyway, I've been waiting for a stamp to arrive from the PTI Holiday Photo Finishers set& decided to use this one new favourite of mine!

I used the Clean & Simple FLT161 for this card. I used a flourish from PTI's Fancy Flourishes set, another favourite! 

A close up of that yummy tag image! I can't wait for my Damask Snowflake dies to arrive so I can pair the two on cards! So that makes me another card closer to completing my Christmas Cards! 

I'm off to get some designing done & a few chores! If I can tear myself away from my new supplies!

Thanks for stopping by!

Going Dotty!

Today I feel as if I am going dotty! It's half way through the working week & I am wishing Friday would hurry up! 

It's not that I am having a bad week, I just want it to be the weekend so I can spend time with my hunny & more importantly get on with some DIY in the studio! It's coming along nicely, we got some of the plasterboard on the ceiling last night with the help of his Dad. This weekend should see the plasterboard stage complete ready for plastering! 

Anyhow, enough of that & onto today's card. As I am anxiously awaiting NEW supplies I decided to use some old favourites of mine.

Holiday Tags 2009 & Polka Dot Basics. I kept the LO simple as I want to give myself some easily mass produceable options for when I am running out of time for my Christmas cards! Well, we only have 75 days!

Above is a close up, I apologise for the slight fuzziness of the photo, it's gloomy & rainy here today which is why I have been cozy creating this afternoon! I already have an item for my Christmas list & that is a photo tent!

I am entering this card into the current challenge over on A Passion for Papertrey, go on check it out! It's time for me to get cooking the tea so I will be back tomorrow with another card.

Thanks for stopping by!
