Use A Charm

As it is now the end of October, time is fast running out for Christmas cards so from now on, where ever possible I am only to make Christmas cards, right?

The last few years I have made Christmas cards all year long so by this stage in the year I was sitting pretty with my stash all made.  This January however I felt Christmas was never ending so decided to hault production till middle of the year.  Sadly however, middle of the year came and went and Christmas cards still didn't appear.  So that's it, next year its year round production again & for now, it's ONLY CHRISTMAS!

Today sees a new challenge over at An Oldie But a Goodie - set by Natalie and sponsored by Paper Nest Dolls.

The theme is

Use A Charm
(Remember also to use an item older that 6 months on your project and to tell us what it is.)

So here is my CHRISTMAS card!


Made using a super Carolling Snowmen image from Paper Nest Dolls - thanks for that PND!  Papers used are Crafters Companion and my oldies, then the card is finished with the pom-pom trim and charm.

The prize this time from Paper Nest Dolls is a $25 gift voucher to be used in their store - a very generous prize indeed for our lucky winner.

Hope you can join us this time & for more lovely inspiration head back to the main blog to see what the rest of the DT made.
