H is for Holiday Helpers at ABC Christmas Challenges

We are up to the letter H now at ABC Christmas Challenges.  We are looking for "Holiday Helper" inspired projects.  This is a card I made last Christmas, but never posted.  It uses Christmas Elf Marci from La La Land Stamps - a favourite line of stamps in this household.  My girls would rather colour these in than use a colouring book!

Thanks for stopping by.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

CRAFT Challenges - Christmas
Winter Wonderland - Red and Green must not be seen
Digi Galore - One for the Girls
Whoopsi Daisy Challenges - Not a square
Scribbles Designs - Shaped or Easel Cards
One Sweet Challenge - Shaped card

Family Wedding

I thought I would share this wedding card I have made for my step-sister who is getting married this Friday.  I'm really pleased with the way it has come up.  I have used two images, "Love Me Do" by Wee Stamps and  "Rose Covered Trellis" from The Pixie Cottage.  I hope you like it as much as I do.
