The Creative Cottage Challenge #21

Phew... finally got rid of that 'fairy dust'... thought I'd better as the cat was going around with 'cobweb' headphones on! Well, after that cleaning session I thought I merited a little 'me' time! So here I am... and not before time as there's a new challenge at The Creative Cottage... CHRISTMAS! Here's my DT card for the challenge, I have to admit though I'm struggling with Christmas cards, just can't get into it...

I've kept it fairly simple, using a plain white card with deckle edge. The cute trees are from The Creative Cottage Robbie & Roxanne digi kit... aren't they adorable?! All I did was mat and layer, added the sentiment and the little bow and voila! I'm entering this card in the Christmas In August challenge at A Spoon Full Of Sugar. Well, that's kinda the extent of my festive inspiration at the minute! Pop over to the Challenge Blog to see all the cards from the other DT girls... they've done some fab 'uns! And if you have a go at this fortnight's challenge you could win a super prize from The Creative Cottage, two (yep not one but TWO) kits from The Creative Cottage! What are you waiting for? Oh and why not pop over to check out The Creative Cottage products at Pollycraft, there's a fab special offer on the Christmas Wishes kit! Toodle Pip!

Hi Shelly, I think I brought that punch at Monoco Direct Crafts but I don't remember what size or price but The Glitter Pot has a fern punch by Leone Em.
