Bling it on

I had fun with this one. It's my GDT card for Allsorts and our theme this week is monochrome Christmas following a sketch. We're sponsored by Bunny Zoe's Crafts and have a fab stamp for the winner.



The Christmas tree is a new kit from Pink Petticoat called Fairy Lights, it has so much in it. I simply printed the tree and stuck a selection of Prima gems and pearls on it. Which is handy as Stamp Something have a theme of 'bling'. Crafty Creations are looking for the colour blue, I think I've managed that! Fun with Shapes asked us to use non-traditional Christmas colours which said blue on the list, but this doesn't look or feel traditional to me so I hope it counts. Creatalicious say we can only use patterned paper from scraps and add handmade flowers, the snowflake papers are leftovers from a card I made here, and the snowflakes are my substitute for handmade flowers.



The snowflakes and branches are Martha Stewart and were a little gift from Tracy with an order from Dies to Die For, she always includes some freebies. I printed the sentiment on the PC and used a Nesties labels die to cut it out and that's my card.

I've come down with another lurgy - how annoying is that just after getting over the last one. Never mind, hoping my Mum in law can still come round this morning to babysit Blake so that I can go out and have some time with just Zac. It's too cold to treat him to an ice cream so I'll have to look for a cute cookie or something.
