Morning peeps and hope all is well with you today :)

It’s that time of the week when we nip over to the US of A and see what’s happening with the good people at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge and this week it’s all about

Christmas In August

and there is a whopping ….

to spend right here ….

Now I know I moaned about My Harrods etc yesterday but like I said it’s different for us poor souls (and poor being the operative word espesh when we can’t say no to new stash!!) who make cards. We need to start early cos heaven forbid that we would have to go and BUY them!! If you send people bought cards they see it a a bit of a slight when you make them yourself don’t they :(

Anyhoos this is what I did.

I used this cute Penny Black stamp – it’s called A Thorny Affair and you can see it here. I coloured it with the old Copics but no list today hunny-pies cos the dope chucked it out trying to have a tidy up!!!

The base card was made using  these Spellbinders Grand Nesties

*LF-114 Spellbinders GRAND CIRCLES Nestabilities Calibur Dies    *LF-124 Spellbinders GRAND SCALLOPED CIRCLES Nestabilities Calibur Dies  

… and if you click on the pics they will take you to the right place in the Simon Says Stamp Store

I used an old Sissix holly die and a hole punch to make the berries (or cherries as Kyla calls them!!)  but you could easily draw a couple of leaves if you don’t have the die.

I really like this card and it’s so quick and easy which is just the ticket if you have a mountain of Christmas cards to make.

So that’s me done for today – another shortie as work is coming out of me ears!!! Don’t forget to check it all out if you get a sec and also we have our dinks challenge which you can read about here if you missed it.

So I’ll see you tomoz with something fairy-ish!!! No sneakie peekie cos it’s still not quite done.

Enjoy your day and huggiest of hugs to all xxx
