I do hope you are all having a good weekend. I decided that I would take the day off from, packing, cleaning and sorting, and just make some cards. I am running late with some challenges, but have now made them and will get them in on time,
The first one is a Christmas card, which is for the Christmas challenge at DS4J. The image we received this month is Santa's letter, and if you are not playing in the progressive challenge then you can get it HERE. If you would like to play in the challenge, then you have to request the new image from Desire and if you enter the card then you will get the new image the following month. A great way to get going with your Christmas cards...it isn't too late to start now!
Here is what I used:
Paper was from a Christmas paper pad I have had for ages. There is very little of it left.
Image - Santa's letter coloured with distress inkpads, added texture paste for the snow and some glitter over that. Ccut it out and mounted with silicone.
The diecut is from Joycrafts - Winter wishes and I added some glitter to that as well.
Sentiment is also a Joycraft one.
I did try and follow the sketch from Digi Sketch Challenge
At least my Christmas card collection is growing, but I do need to make at least 2 a month and I have been slipping the last month or so.
Will enter this in the following challenges:

I hope to be back later tonight with my second card, but I do need to watch a football match that will start soon in South America, and the Dutch team needs my support...LOL, so till later....
Take care, love, Ursula
