My final Christmas Card!


I think! No I'm certain, all are now done and this last one is for my daughter, I've done it in her favourite colour - purple and there's a matching money wallet, which I'll show you tomorrow as it was too dark to take a decent photo by the time I'd finished.

I'm entering my card into 4 challenges:
Simon Says - Merry Christmas
Anyone for Anya - Last Christmas Card of the year
Susie's Sassy Designs - A touch of Gold (the ribbon is gold IRL)

I've used Stampin; Up! Lovely Lilac cardstock and my papers are digi from Shabby Princess, the rest is from my stash.

I also did the last of my Christmas shopping today plus my grocery shopping, so apart from a bit of wrapping, I'm actually ready for Christmas - hooray!

Jan! Congrats on finishing your Christmas preparations! Have some mulled wine and a mince pie to celebrate! As a former pastry chef, mince pies make me shudder (still after ten years!), although I do now allow them in the house (It's the smell - reminds me of the millions...).
As for your daughter's card, it's gorgeous! CC Designs? I love the lay out too. xxx
