Festive Cheer at The Crafty Pad

What a glorious morning! The sun is shining, the sky is blue and it's insanely mild for November! Of course, that doesn't stop us from thinking ahead, and it's only just over 4 weeks until Christmas, so with that in mind, our challenge this week at The Crafty Pad is:


We want to see you using TRADITIONAL Christmas colours...Red, Green, Gold, Silver.

Our sponsor is the wonderful Joanna Sheen with a £10 spend in her online shop.

The DT have all used one of Debbie's mega-cute festive character with cup images, which you can get your hands on here.

Here's my card: I kept the layout fairly simple, and the embellishments to a minimum too...just a few tiny gems and a shimmery ribbon.

I coloured my image with promarkers and cut it out. I added some Stickles to the froth. My papers are Dovecraft from a few years ago and I found a red/white polka dot one to match the mug in the image.

The sentiment ticket is also from The Crafty Pad Designs, part of a set of 11 Xmas sentiments, which you can find here.

I decorated the inside to match, and added some faux stitches using a white gel pen.

I do hope you will join us again this week, I love visiting your blogs and always manage to pick up some inspiration along the way!

I am entering my card into the following challenges:
