Christmas Cheer and Saturday candy



Happy Weekend all you crafty Peeps, this week at Allsorts my mate Tracy is challenging us to share some Christmas Cheer, as most of us are well and truly into Crimbo mode with our crafting it should be a popular one. Our sponsors this week are Crafty Devils and DigiStamp Boutique.

As things remains slow on the stamping front I have used another of Igancio's lovely Nicecrane Designs images, this was one of those where I could visualise the card as soon as I saw it. I printed the birds out twice so I could decoupage them, used a favourite Christmas sentiment from Stampendous, embossing folder and Cheery Lynn golly swirl die.

Last weeks candy winner is The Sparkle Fairy, please mail me with your full name and postal addy. And this week I have a lovely set of Christmas stamps and a matching embossing folder.
