A Country Cousins Christmas.

Morning all! Wow what a whirlwind weekend I'm having. I don't feel like I've stopped since 4pm on friday. We went to York Opera house on friday night straight after I finished work. YesterdayI went to Jules workshop and then straight out afterwards into Leeds to see The Editors and didn't get in until after midnight! Think today should be a little calmer though. I am wanting to get in my craft room at some point and also get around to have a look at what you've all been up to over the weekend!

I love this cute image from Sugar Nellie. Although it is from the Autumn Country Cousins set I think this stamp is perfect as a winter image for christmas cards! I am going to enter this card over at Everybody Art this week, where their challenge is 'shapes or punches'.

Another simple LO for this card. I feel much more at home with these type of cards, and feel they are definately my style! I hope you like it!

Image: Autumn Country Cousins Kit by Sugar Nellie, available here at Funky Kits. Coloured with Koh-i-noors and Sansodor

Paper: MME Signature Christmas

CS: Kraft from stash

Sentiment: Elzybells Everyday Greetings set

Tools: distress inks, sponge, nesties, xcut snowflake punch,

Misc: Cappucino pearls from Quixotic Paperie, Snowtex, Glitter Glue for snowflake.

Before I go I would just like to thanks Jules for yesterday's workshop. I met some fantastic ladies and had such fun there with my friend Jill using products from the new Stampin Up catalogue. Boy, there are so many new stamp sets and punches that I want, my wish list is getting bigger by the day! Lol! If you haven't seen the new Stampin Up Catalogue then stop by Jules blog and take a look.

I hope you're all having a great weekend. Thanks for stopping by today and have a happy sunday!

Hugs, Vicky ~x~
