Caroling Trio


How's your week going so far ?, ok i hope. The weather seems to have dropped a few degrees from last week, so out came my woolly hat and thermal vest again !! OH surprised me last night and was home by 6.30pm, which was really nice, as  H was able to spend some time with his daddy before he went to sleep.

For today's card i've used a stamp that i bought in the Sir Stampalot sale at Xmas and thought it would be ideal for a green card and it would also suit a 'Sing' challenge, the papers are really old 'Dovecraft - Jolly Happy Christmas' and i've also dusted off a CB folder 'Allegro', then just added pearls and a sentiment to finish it off.

Today's Card and Challenges :

Totally Papercrafts - where the Challenge is 'Song and Dance' - i went for Song, well actually Christmas Carol

Paper Sundaes - where Challenge No: 110 is 'Green Or Good Luck' - i went for Green

Christmas Cards - where Challenge No: 14 is 'Embossing'

Secret Crafter - where Challenge No: 175 is 'Green For Go'

Creative Inspirations - where Challenge No: 153 is a 'Colour Scheme' - Green And White

Image - Penny Black - 'Caroling Trio'
Sentiment - Penny Black - 'Holly - Jolly'
Papers - Dovecraft - 'Jolly Happy Christmas'
Embossing - CB - 'Allegro'
Green Pearls - Wild Orchid Crafts

Thanks for looking, Luv Sam x
