Wild Rose Studio Christmas Tree

 Hi all :-) There are only 70 more days to Christmas !!! CAN'T WAIT !! :-)

If you haven't started making your cards yet then you had better get a wiggle on ,, It will soon be time to get them in the post ! :-)

This fortnight on the ABC Christmas Challenge it is Chris's turn to host and she chose 

'U' for Uncoloured Image 

ie, you can stamp with coloured ink, use die cuts etc, just don't stamp and colour your image with pens, pencils etc

I tool the easy option and went with a WOW card, actually I made 2 as they were so easy I felt like I was cheating :-)

These gorgeous dies are from a new Wild Rose Studio release, this first one is made using a Christmas Tree die

and this one is made using a Hanging Baubles Die

I simply glittered them and added a few sequins and pearls. I think they are gorgeous, even if I do say so meself ;-)

Thanks for looking :-)

We are proudly sponsored by the lovely peeps over at

and the winner can choose 5 Digital Images!! :-)
