December Christmas Card #8 ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well. I am hoping that I have finally used these patterned papers snippets, lol, and I’m very sorry that there have been one after another Christmas cards shared this week using the same patterned papers and stamps, I do have something not Christmas related to share tomorrow. However here is this card ...

Another A6 card
Fantastic for posting too!
A final look

Created for me and especially for these Challenges
Allsorts Challenge #445 Snowflakes
Happy Little Stampers Watercolour Challenge

Mod Squad Challenge Non Traditional Christmas Colours

I think pale pink, pale blue and lilac are untraditional
Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge Christmas/Winter Holidays

I had to come up with a different layout for this card because I didn’t have enough patterned paper to cover the card base and putting them together would have looked odd, lol, I have to admit I did think of recycling them but I’m daft and would have felt naughty for not using them lol! We are recylcers and have been for years, lol, and that’s why I struggle to recycle or throw out my paper snippets.

This time I didn’t stamp and heat emboss, just for something different lol. It was very quick to create and put this one together and it’s another card for our stack of Christmas cards. Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do soon ttfn Karen x

Wow, what a sparkly ornament you did on this card. I love it in that dark blue. The simple snowflakes in the background make a nice display. Good that you were able to use up all of the scraps.
Thanks so much for joining us in the challenge at the Mod Squad this week. I am glad to see you here.

Such a pretty vintage-looking ornament, Karen. Nice design. Thanks for playing along at HLS Watercolor Challenge for December.
