1000th Post

Yes, it is my 1000th post on my blog and how appropriate that it should be one of my fave colour combinations. I've used Simply Sassy Secret Santa from Sugar Nellies, coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. I'm in love with Distress Inks and Core'dinations at the moment. Here I've used DI Dusty Concord and some gorgeous aqua Core'dinationds. I've used a couple of different label Nesties and an MS snowflake punch with white glitter card, some pearls from the Hobby House, ribbon and a couple of old Sizzix dies, the tree and fence. I haven't used these for ages but having seen other people using a tree die, remembered I had this one which I used with Centura Pearl card. The fence was made with the Core'dinations and sanded to give a frosty look.  The papers are Wild Rose Wintry Christmas.
Challenges:
The Sugar Bowl Second entry using their great sketch
Divas by Design Merry Christmas
Papertake I'm dreaming of (your favourite colour) Christmas
Crafty Calendar Cold and frosty

There are so many Christmas challenges at the moment, mmm wonder why, lol! However I don't like making a card and then seeing how many challenges I can enter with one card. I only have 2 more Christmas cards to make but still have several to share with you including my Winter Wonderland and Totally Gorjuss DT cards later this week. Unfortunately housework and ironing are calling so time to leave the craftroom. Hope you all have a good day whatever you are doing and not getting stressed about your Christmas preparations.
