Welcome to another challenge day post from me .....

Hey there and welcome to the first Saturday in December

Don't know about you but my cards went off in the post yesterday, my Secret Santa gift was collected by MyHermes in the week and should be arriving with my swap partner today or Monday, all being well. Christmas decorations are up and my pressies are wrapped, so ... it's beginning to FEEL a lot like Christmas as well as look a lot like it! How are your preparations coming along?

Saturday, for me, is my busiest card making day of the week, sometimes I'll make one and sometimes I'll make several -usually for challenges. Want to see what I have to share with you today?

You were quick! Great combining those stamps and those colours! Hope you have a good week!

Forgot to say; Congrats on winning at Stemping Sensations!

Ann Tuck said...

The stamp you have used here is unusual but perfect to combine those two colours for LIM this week! I love the collage effect but it can be so hard for me to create using a variety of stamps - this one is a beauty!
