Tis the season alright !

Good morning to you and happy December - not long now !

We had a flurry of excitement in our house this morning as the children opened the first doors on their advent calendars and the surprise on their little faces when they realised that they were allowed to eat that little chocolate at breakfast time was precious x

Almost makes all the tantrums and horrid behaviour of the last week bearable - almost !!

Anyway this morning it is time to reveal the new colour combination over at colour create and this week it was the super sylvia's turn to inspire us with this gorgeous combo and inspiration pic.So our colours this week are red, white & green and our optional extra is snowflakes.

Our sponsor for this challenge is High hopes rubber stamps who are offering our winner this gorgeous set of stamps.I went for the clean & simple aproach this week - it just seemed right with this image which I coloured with my sons crayola pens !
The background is also made with the crayola's and a wet paint brush and then I added loads of crackle accents. This is the 1st time I have used this - it is sooooo easy you just squeeze it on and it crackles itself !

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

Stunning card Suzie. The background behind the holly is beautiful and the crackel glaze on the holly itself is a superb touch. Really gorgeous.
