2nd post of the day - please scroll down to read earlier post

Hi there,

First off I'd like to welcome Juniebears and Trudie Miller as my two latest followers - never thought I'd get above 50! When I see some blogs with THOUSANDS of followers I find myself experiencing blog envy - but those people are super talented . . . . maybe one day!

Anyhoo - on with the crafting. In an attempt to keep on top of the Christmas card situation I have been joining in with the ABC of Christmas blogs. These run fortnightly and may be found here, we're currently on C, which in this case stands for Clean and Simple Christmas and comes with a sketch. So, here is my take on the Clean and Simple Christmas . . .

Materials used:
6" x 6" white scalloped card with matching envelope and insert
A rectangular panel of white card edged on one side using a Martha Stewart punch
An offcut strip of silver mirri card
A die cut circle from white card, 6½cm in diameter
A die cut zig zig circle, 6cm in diameter
White card cut 13cm square
Red card cut 13½cm square
Unknown manufacturers image stamped in memento tuxedo black on to white card and cut out
Mica paint in white and made liquid with "magiblend" by Imagination Crafts
Penny Black sentiment stamped in memento tuxedo black directly on to the white layer

The reindeer image was also stamped on the envelope and insert, along with a See Dee's sentiment, also in memento tuxedo black.

So that's another Christmas card done then! One down and "how many" to go?!?!?! More than 23 that's for sure - wish me luck!

Hope your Wednesday is going well, catch you tomorrow peeps.
