'Tis the season (nearly !)

Good morning to you and happy Friday :)

Wow when took my son into school today his teacher told us that this weekend the children would be bringing home their lines to learn for the Christmas play most of the mums in the room gasped 
"already !" but the teacher frowned at us and told us that there was only 3 full weeks to learn and practice before the Christmas performance's begin !!
So quite fitting that I have a Christmas card to show you today :)

Today a new challenge has been set for you over at Stampin' for the weekend. This time our theme is
All stitched up
Yes we want to see your projects with real or faux stitching and don't forget to add a little stamping :)

I used my new SU ornament dies and piercing templates to create my card and added my stitching, using silver metallic thread, to the ornaments. I also added some of the thread to my pleated border strip and also on the bow. Lots of gems add to the sparkle too.

I really love the traditional colours and patterns of this card and really enjoyed creating it :)

Don't forget to check out the stampin' for the weekend blog to see all the fantastic inspiration from the DT and get all the details for the challenge.

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

Craft us crazy - Favourite colour/holiday (I love the traditional Christmas colours)
ABC Christmas challenge - V is for vibrant colours
Whimsy stamps challenge - Use traditional Christmas colours
Clear it out challenge - Anything RED goes ! 

Thanks so much for visiting me today x
((hugs)) Suzie xoxo
