Christmas is coming so come and play..

Hey all! 
Good morning to you all! I have a new card to share with you this morning, I made this card at the weekend for 2 reasons... 1st reason was I was running a Christmas card workshop at work, 

2nd Reason is that Today there is a New challenge at Crimbo Crackers and Ruth has invited me to be a Guest for the New challenge, I was a winner of her challenge 23 in September but offered my prize for re draw as I often have digi's from sponsors of the challenges I DT for so asked Ruth to redraw the prize and hopefully someone that is not on a DT would get the fabby prize... 

Anyway so while I was planning my workshop I was also planning the card for Crimbo Crackers and thankfully having been stupidly busy since returning from our holiday I decided to combine the tasks... 

So the Challenge at Crimbo Crackers this fortnight is Anything Goes as long as its Christmas! and for the workshop one of the cards I showed them how to make was using this Fabulous Cling Stampendous Stamp called snowy postcard.

I have Stamped in memento and coloured with a combination of water colour pencils and distress inks, then splashed with water and liquid pearls, then added liquid pearl to the berries and when it was dry layered onto black card stock and a white card. 

Very simple and I think I will be making a few with this stamp for sure.. 

Hope you like it and can come and join the Crimbo Cracker challenge... 
Here are the challenges I am playing for this project: 

Our Daily Bread - Winter Holiday
Cards For Men - masculine Merry Christmas
Hooked on Craft - Christmas NO red/green

  3. Oh the joys of my voice recognition program, dare not even tell you what it type the first time !

    Totally love it Samantha, everything about it says vintage.

    In fact I been playing with the same stamp today, I ordered it way back in July when I first saw it, they messed me about for ages saying it was out of stock, in the end I asked for my money back, ordered it somewhere else and it arrived today.
