Crafts 4 Eternity #6

Good Morning, back again! Time for this weeks C4E Recipe Challenge. As usual, Michele has provided another fab sketch to follow. Additionally, we would like to see you incorporate some holly or ivy, & you need to use a punch somewhere on you card. It's the perfect excuse to get another Xmas card out of the way!
I have not actually used a Xmas image, but I think this cute little fairy from CC Designs is so versatile. Her official name is Fidget Goblinspider (what a fab name!), but I thought the circles on her skirt could look like holly berries, so I have made her more seasonal! I've also used a DP that includes holly & a little holly punch too. I did not have anything with ivy on! I've used three punches in all on the card, for the snowflakes & to thread the ribbon.


Now it's time to hop on over to see the fab work of my DT colleagues, see it here. This week to help you with your Xmas cards, my lovely teamie, Suzette is providing a great prize. It's a set of her fabulous Xmas sentiment stamps. The phrases are just perfect. Michele has also released a wonderful Xmas kit at her Crafts 4 Eternity store, full of fantastic MME papers & lots of other irrestible goodies. See it here.
Hope everyone is having a great weekend. We had a lovely time at the fireworks last night, though Ben hid behind me for much of it, as he found them a bit loud. But towards the end the expressions on his & Jack's faces were a picture as they gazed open mouthed at the terrific display. Ah, bless!
Anyway, thanks for looking!
Big Hugs to you all,
Andie xx
