Festive Fun

Hi everyone, the end of the week has arrived.....boy! it has been a busy one for me. Although most of it fun catching up with friends and even family.

I have another Christmas card for you today.
Yes, I am sending this off to Tracey Hanshaw for her collection to send to Aussie Troops serving overseas.

  I started with a white base card then a layer of textured blue paper from my DCWV paper pack.  Next a layer of this fabulous Allison Ellis paper (Totally Christmas).  I then used my deckled edged oval Spellbinder die and cut a blue and white background from my topper.  This cute little 3D paper tole/decoupage came from a little 3D booklet full of other images and matching papers.
I then used a gold rub-on sentiment to finish off.

Wishing you all a great weekend and I will be back Monday with some more Christmas cards.
Hubby and I are heading off to watch an AFL game.  This is a first for me.  I have watched AFL on TV before but never seen a live match.   Should be fun.  Richmond vs Gold Coast Suns.


  1. Love the decoupage, the foily paper is beautiful, such a great cause!

  2. What a cute card! I love snowmen. What a great idea to get a head start on Christmas to do it!

  3. Ooooooh I love this card, that image is just adorable!

    Have fun at the footy - I actually thought of you last night when I saw that the game was on in Cairns :o) I just hope that Richmond win because I backed them in the tipping hehe!
