Christmas spirit !

Hello hope you are well. I am looking forward to a bank holiday weekend with some sunshine (I know my chances are slim but you have to think positive don't you !?) after the soaking we've had in the UK this week. I also must get some washing done (yawn!)

Well after making a christmas card for this weeks Creative cottage challenge blog I seem to have got into the christmas spirit (a bit early I know !) and when I saw the kits on sale at the pink petticoat site I just couldn't resist them and bought two !

These papers, including the solid red background, are from the Fairy lights kit and it took me ages to choose them as this is a huge kit with masses of papers and images. The paper peiced tree and sentiment is also from the kit.
All I really done was cut, arranged and distressed my papers with some ink before sticking them down and adding loads of glossy accents.
My lace was coloured with stazon to make it black and mounted onto a scrap of the solid crimson card to co-ordinate perfectly.

Voila these digi kits make life super easy as all the co-ordinating is done for you which is great for times like christmas when you make loads of cards x

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges ;

The Crazy Challenge - Never too early for Christmas
Creative Inspirations Challenge - Christmas in August
Digi Doodle Shops Best - So distressing !
For Fun Challenges - Include ribbon or lace
Simon Says Challenge - Paper peicing
City Crafter Challenge - Include stars/star

Thanks for looking have a great weekend x
((hugs)) Suzie xx
