UNIKO Studio Challenge #44~Christmas

Hello,

I can't believe it's nearly the end of November AND Christmas Eve is exactly one month from today! OH MY!  If, like me, you're still scrambling to complete your Christmas cards, Uniko Studio's Challenge #44~Christmas, is timely. Festive inspiration galore about to unfold! 

Joining us for this challenge is wonderfully talented Sue, from Sue's Card Craft; her card...swoon! Please be sure to drop by her place to leave her some love.



Given that I'm *still* waiting for products to be delivered (I know...crazy!), I decided to play once again with one of  Bev's lovely digital images that you can find here. I fiddled and faddled with the holly sprig image to create a background pattern for my card, which I then coloured with Copics. A sentiment from Rustic Wreath stamped on a label die and...another card for the 'get ready to mail' pile.



Oh...and before you go, I transformed the tags I made for Tracey's 25 Days of Christmas Tags into cards. Stash pile getting higher!




For incredible inspiration, please visit the rest of the team; dazzle guaranteed...

You have plenty of time to play along!

O really can't believe that the mails haven't reached you yet, very frustrating just to hear, and I know exactly how you must be feeling. I really hope it reaches you soon(I know I have said it already so many times!)

The holly background is so cute and beautifully colored, Carol. I always turn my tags into cards. This year I have more cards than I need so I may wait and do that later.

Gorgeous card, Carol. I love the design and how you coloured the holly.
