A Christmas card for a change.

Good morning friends,
Firstly a big welcome to my newest followers..Lori, Susan and Christina. Lovely to have you join my little group of friends and hope you will pop in from time to time. Love having visitors...sorry I don't always have tea and cake, but hope there is something else to make your visit worthwhile.

Onto today's challenge at Creative Craft Cottage. This fortnight we have another popular 'Ánything goes' challenge and our sponsor is The Cutting Cafe.
The DT have all used one of their cutting files for their cards. The great thing with their cutting files is that you can use then even without an electronic cutting machine....that is really great.

For my card I decided to go with a side step card and I made a Christmas card.

The paper is all from my stash,

Image was a freebie from Crafty Sentiments Designs a little while back and it is called 'Dressing the Christmas tree'.
 Coloured it with Distress inkpads and added lots of glitter to the tree

I then cut some squares and made a pile of gifts with ribbon bows.

The sentiment is from a Papermania set
