Another week gone by at this rate it will be Christmas before we have had summer.

Still by making these cards for  I shall be ready with my cards.
This week it's "red and green must be seen" so here is mine.
I used a circular punch on some wrapping paper then added a vintage decoupage Father Christmas from an old card, used up a bit of left over plaid paper and mounted it all onto green card stock. So basically made from left over bits and recycled. I hate waste.

This week on the theme is "wonderful wings" so of course I have to have my favourite little bird, I love these little friendly birds they come eat from your hand and always keep you company when gardening, saves me talking to myself. Ooops on with the challenge. This card was all done on a digitising programme, quick and simple.

The Naughty Step Challenge

Ok so I'll start the ball rolling again shall I. My chosen two colours for this month's challenge of "monochrome" over on is white and beige. I have been playing with bows this last few weeks so yes you guessed it a bow on my entry.


This week's challenge  on  The theme is must have the word "Christmas" on the front. So I have chosen to do a hand embossed and cut topper, rather than use my machine, it's so nice to sit and proper craft as I call it now and again. Then mat and layered onto green and red card stock, then added a bow and a tiny embellishment. The words are just a peel off.

This week on the theme is Christmas Carol/Song so mine is "The First Noel"
It may be a bit hard to read but the writing on the front is the first verse of the song
