A Stampendous Christmas

As I spent last Christmas and New Year in America I was there for the sales. I picked this stamp from Stampendous for the equivalent of £2.50 in Micheal's, wood mounted too, not that I normally go for wood mounted. I stamped onto some white card with Navy Stazon and the using Tumbled Glass distress ink I coloured the image, picking the holly out with some pro markers. I then mounted onto some silver mirri card. I picked a backing paper in a matching colour from a Crafters Companion CD, sorry I can't remember which one. I had the holly die cuts already cut out and added these, along with one of Sue Wilson's poinsettia Dies which I added glitter too.

I can't believe how quickly this month is flying by, only a few more weeks and Christmas will be upon us once again. Last year I tried to make a couple of Christmas cards each week so I was at least a little bit prepared. I'm going to try and do that again next year so it doesn't sneak up like this year.

Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.
