A Gem of a Challenge - Kraft at Christmas

I'm scheduling this so I hope it works... round about now I'll be running around frantically throwing last minute packing into cases, because we're setting off for our holiday in Norfolk today.  So looking forward to the break :o)

So... our new challenge at A Gem of a Challenge is 'Kraft at Christmas' - so anything Christmas and use some kraft card.  I'm getting quite a collection of Christmas cards now, it's not like me at all!


I've used the pre-coloured version of the very cute new Snowy Robins image - I just added a bit of stickles on the snow and cut it out with a Nestie Labels 14 die.  The papers are also from Pink Gem Designs - the blue one is from Christmas Sparkles and the pink is Stripes.  The corners were cut with a Whimsy die, sentiment is Pink Petticoat and the pearls are from my stash.

There will be a couple of posts while I'm away, assuming blogger plays nicely!  And then I've got lots of fun stuff to show you when I get back :o)  See you in a week, be good while I'm gone!
