Christmas Cupcake

It's a while since I've made a Christmas card, so I thought I'd better get one made so that I'm still on schedule for 1 Xmas card/week.

This card came together surprisingly quickly. After staring at the CCWS sketch for well over a week, I hit on an idea tonight & here is the result.

I absoultely love this Christmas Cupcake stamp by Bugaboo. I'm normally a traditional kinds fan, but there's something about this glitzy beauty that I love!

Papers are that old Dovecraft pack that I'm getting through but still lovin! Sentiment LOTV & glitx from Stickles.


Challenges;
CCWS - A lovely sketch + Baby it's cold outside - so come in for coffee & a cupcake!!!
ABC Xmas - E for evergreen - my holly & green papers
CHCC - Red - A little or a lot! I went for little on the holly
Catch the Bug - Anything Goes
Creative Inspirations - Green & White

Finally congrats to Alan - he passed his driving theory test today, YIPEE! Jx

Oh this is fabulous - i love it and the papers are just perfect.

Well done to Alan!! You must be proud...
and if you need any insurance so he can practise i can recommend "Covered learner " - you can buy a month at a time... and then when he passes .. try LV - we got an absolute bargain!
