Traditional Red and Green Christmas~

Hi All~

This will be my last post until I get back from shopping in Glasgow with my lovely friend Angie, we just cannot wait now.
We go Thursday morning and come back Saturday early evening, it's such fun.

Must admit, although it is a Christmas shopping trip (to buy for others) we do try to find Craft shops to have a treat in....However, we struggle every year to find any. There is an art shop in the middle of the city, and Hobbycraft on the outskirts, but we cannot find anywhere else. If anyone has any shops they know of, can you let me know. Thank you girls.

Today's cards are both Christmas cards. Penny Black and LOTV images.
I must admit these two have been my favorite Christmas images this year.
I followed the brief on A Crafty Little place for the Red/Green and White colour combo, and the sketch at Stamp Something. I have used MME Christmas Stack papers and a small corner MS snowflake punch. I have also used my Nestie scalloped oval for the image and sentiment. The other card sketch is Sketch Saturday and the large snowflake on this is the MS large one.

Entered into:

Stamp Something--Sketch (For Red/Green Card)
Sketch Saturday--Sketch (For Green card)
A Crafty little place--Red/Green/White
A Spoonfull of Sugar--Snowflakes
LOTV--One for the Girls
Paper Sundae--Let it Snow
One stitch at a time--Winter
