Over at Create with Kate's blog they are having their first challenge. The theme is Scandinavian inspired - red and white and simple. There is so much of this in the shops this year and it's all gorgeous, so it's the theme for my tree and house this Christmas. I've never quite managed to carry off a theme before - too many little people eager to throw guady tinsel and multicoloured stuff everywhere LOL so we'll see if I get away with it this year!
Of course I had to use my Nordic Winter stamp set from Waltzingmouse Stamps. The images were stamped with Worn Lipstick distress ink and the same ink was used to colour the matting and layering card. A bit of gingham ribbon and a couple of gems - done. I think I'll be making quite a few red and white cards this Christmas, they're so easy!
Create with Kate are having a Christmas Crafting Jamboree in Athlone next Sunday Dec 4th and I can't wait! Best bit of all - she's bringing her fabulous shop!
