Christmas wishlist...

Hello again,

Well after a full week of Holiday Chaos with the Design Team over at Catch the Bug would you believe I’m still short on Christmas cards??? Just as well I always colour extra images and have a few leftover. Today brings us to the final day of this years Holiday Chaos challenge and today the challenge is to create a card using a nine square bingo chart. I have used Bugaboo’s latest freebie, Crabby Cat Christmas.

Are you all ready for the big day yet? We’ve packed a box of presents to go to my brother, sister in law and niece my Dad will be driving some of my brothers possessions left in ‘storage’ at home along with most of the Christmas gifts for them, unfortunately a few gifts are still on their way we will have to post them once they arrive. As for the Christmas day lunch plans were made a while ago, before I met a new doctor, who has placed me on an elimination diet for the foreseeable future, thankfully I’m already used to some of the diet having intolerances to a third of the food eliminated… I have already requested Christmas post elimination diet…

Here is my card:-



What I used:-
White 12.6 x 17.7cm card (5x7”)
Candy stripes embossing folder
Derwent Pencils
Printed Merry Christmas sentiment
Doodlebug designs paper
AC Pool and Rouge cardstock

Memory Box Sweet Candy canes die
MFT Pierced Square die
Stamps from magazine

In a Pear tree

Hello again,

Today brings us to day six of this weeks Holiday Chaos Challenge over at Bugaboo Stamps Challenge blog, today the challenge is to use our old stash and an old image.

I dug through my stash and found one of the first patterned paper packs I received with one of the Australian card making magazines, a set called Christmas Collections from Kaisercraft…

Here is my card:-
