Creative cottage challenge # 27


Hello again hope you are well and keeping warm wherever you are - it's freezing here today so I'm staying in with the heating on constant !

Well wednesday means, of course, another challenge over at the creative cottage challenge blog and this weeks theme was chosen by Anne. She wants to see your christmas cards for someone special and I just know that you are all making Christmas cards like crazy ladies so there is no excuse not to join in !

My card features one of Tracy's (THE BOSS) new kits called gingerbread lane - if you haven't seen it pop over to the shop for a closer look it is super yummy.

As soon as I saw the gingerbread house with it's jelly sweets and candy canes I knew I had to use it to make a special Christmas card for my eldest son, Issac, who is an absolute sweetie fiend - I just know he'll love it and it will take pride of place in his bedroom.

I have decoupaged the gingerbread house although the photo doesn't show it that well - if I get time later I'll try and snap another closer pic for you.
And I made the sentiment with the word processor on my laptop, popped on a rub-on "son" then just added the extra sweeties to finish it off.

I would like to add this card to the following challenges;

Colour Throwdown - Soft suede, cherry cobbler and kraft.
Scrapbook Sisters - Christmas colours
Sweet Stampin' Challenge - Inspiration photo
Digital Tuesday Challenge - Use something new (brand spanking new kit !)
The ABC Challenge - H is for holidays

I hope you will join in and create with us this week at the creative cottage challenge blog, thanks for looking x
((hugs)) Suzie xx
