Christmas Presents

I've had a lovely day out today and had a massage, haircut and lunch so feeling very relaxed. This week at Winter Wonderland Suzi is hosting her first challenge and has chosen embossing. A nice easy challenge for you. Now I know you are all busy making Mother's Day and Easter cards but don't forget to keep making those Christmas cards to save the rush later in the year. We are very lucky to have 2 sponsors this week, Stitchy Bear Stamps and Sentiments 4 You. I love my embossing folders but don't use them as much as I should so this was a great opportunity to use my Cuttlebug star embossing folder to match the stars on the Papermania paper. The image is Pollycraft and I used the Go Kreate dies again. I added some white card candy to finish.

I would also like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Cards for Men Fab sketch and DT call
Pollycraft Card for a teen
Creative Card Crew Show us some green
I love Promarkers Men's cards
The Pixie Cottage Green
