Christmas



There are 2 new challenge blogs this week, Magical Crafts Fortnightly Challenge Blog and Susie's Sassy Challenge. There might be more too lol! So many these days! Magical Crafts challenge is to make a Christmas card, and an ornament, using Green, Red and Gold. I made my card and little frame thingy using HOTP papers, a Stampington & Co. stamp, Distress Ink, and grungeboard and grungepaper embellishments painted gold with Adirondack Gold Dabber. Susie's challenge is to make a Christmas Card, so I am entering mine for this too. And the challenge on Something Completely Different is Holly and the Ivy - use Red, Green and Gold so I am entering these for this one as well.
