Blue Christmas - Monday 16th December

Hello Friends,

I hope you all had a great weekend, we had another that was a mix of  family gatherings and 'getting on with Christmas preparations'...and I also managed  a fair bit of crafting time, so it was all good!

Firstly, I would like to welcome my new follower, Donna Hanley - a crafter who like me, has a passion for everything House Mouse! Welcome Donna! Thank you so much for choosing to follow my little corner of blogland!

Today's card is a box easel: I have been making some of these in various designs lately as they are ideal for giving a little gift or some chocolates in the drawer.

I used my 'Zandra ' template, which I bought at Ally Pally in April;  adorable-scorable pale blue card to make the card, with Pink Petttocoat snowflake papers for the design base.

The stamp is from the Papernania Urban Stamps range, coloured with Promarkers. I inked the edges with Adirondack ink (Pool). The dies are all Spellbinders, but the holly is an old and trusty punch that comes out every year and does a great job!

I finished the card with ribbons and buttons from stash and added a printed sentiment.

I'd like to enter this card in this week's - week 237 -  Allsorts Challenge, which has the theme of 'Snowflakes'

That's all for today, thank you for stopping by!

Love and Hugs,
Carole X
