Clean and simple Christmas

Did you miss me?

Sorry I have not been around for a while its been a rough month or so and blogging and crafting took a back seat...

The sponsor of this challenge is

This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

I won't bore you with details as to why I was not around but I am
feeling much better now..

OK so Here I am with this fortnights As You Like It Challenge
your Favourite Christmas Colours (& why).

I am not one for fussy or fancy and the more I craft the more I realise
that C&S is my thing, Also when we decorate our house for Christmas I really
love clean and simple for that too and this holly digi stamp just shouted at me to use traditional colours of Red and Green so I guess this is my favourite.  

here are a few challenges I would like to play along with:

Christmas at Sweet Stampin' - Anything Goes Christmas
Double D Challenges - Traditional Christmas Colors
Sparkles Forum Christmas - Holly and or Ivy
Crazy 4 Challenges - add some for of sewing to your card
Digi Stamp Boutique customer competition

Since I have been feeling much better I have also been able to get in the garden and have a tidy and plant a few bulbs I love alliums so when I went to the flower show in harrogate a few months back I just had to buy some more :) 

Cant wait to see if they bloom but in the meantime I can enjoy this dried seed head

Hope you have a fabulous week/weekend hugs me xx
