DT CARD CREATIVE INSPIRATIONS CHALLENGE - CHRISTMAS IN OCTOBER


Hello everyone, hope you have all has a lovely weekend, and are rearing to go on the start of a new week. The weather does not look very promising, especially in my neck of the woods, overcast and drizzly! What a way to start the week! I only have one post today, and this is my DT card for Creative Inspirations Challenge No. 18 - Christmas in October! Before you know it, Christmas will be here, so now is a good time to start on those Christmas cards! I have used an old stamp from Stampendous called "Christmas Dear", and this has been coloured with a combo of Sakura Gel Pens and Twinkling H2O's. The fur on the little girls outfit has been "fluffed up" with Liquid Applique. The image has been cut with a round nesty, and layered on cream and dusty rose cardstock. The backing papers are from a Basic Grey paper pad called Wassail, and to finish the card off - a stamped sentiment, some ribbon and some gold gems - all from my craft stash. Thanks so much for stopping by, and hope you will join us this fortnight on Creative Inspirations Challenge!
