First Christmas

This post is scheduled as I am out shopping today and booked on a one hour course learning about I Pads as we are hoping to buy one soon.

I just love this sweet stamp from Humphrey's Corner which I have coloured with Spectrum Noirs and teamed with papers from the Humphrey's Christmas CDs. It's my DT card for Crafter’s Companion where our challenge this month is New Beginnings. I've used label Nesties, MS zigzag punch, seam binding and Kars wooden snowflakes. The sentiment is also from the stamp set.

Eek, 1st December and still busy getting cards made. Haven't bought hubby anything yet and haven't wrapped any pressies either. I am normally much further ahead but being away for most of November had put me all behind this year. How are you doing with your Christmas preparations?

Challenges:
Card Makin Mamas Sentiments
The Cutie Pie Pastel Christmas
Simon Says Anything Goes
I had a lovely surprise yesterday. 
I have won a £10 voucher for Lili of the Valley.
