Happy Friday Everyone
It's weekend ... just!
Hooray! and after a busy week a bit of crafty time is just 
what I needed today so I've 2 cards for you.

First up it's a Christmas card and I'm quite pleased with myself
as I'm trying my best to make Christmas cards, where possible for challenges 
at the moment rather than rush them all off in December which usually happens!

I've used an Art Impressions stamp that's been in my stash forever.
I've stamped it 3 times using the generation stamping technique to add a little 
depth to my forest. For a touch of glamour I've used fluffy stuff with glamour dust
to create some snow ... not sure it's obvious from the photo though.

My sentiments are Clearly Besotted - the 'Merry' one being one of the latest 
word dies and to finish a few gems.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes

Next up I couldn't resist joining in this week's Muse Challenge 
especially as my gorgeous blog buddy Anita is the GDT.

I spotted her love of Uniko products immediately and it reminded
me that I hadn't entered their challenge this month either ...
so I've 'Cased' Anita's card but used the colour palette from

Whoops! Quick edit here as forgot to mention my products!
I've used another Flower Power set from Uniko - No5
Sentiment is WPlus9 - Fanciful Feathers
Enamel Dots are Doodlebug and Vellum from my stash


Ok that's all for today; thanks for stopping by my blog and 
I'll be back again tomorrow with a new Less is More Challenge
