Five of a Kind with the Cutie Pies

Good morning,

In the words of Blur - Monday, Monday here again!  It certainly comes round quick every week!  BUT to brighten up your Monday we have a fab new challenge starting over at The Cutie Pie Challenge.  Our theme this week to go along with your cute image is 'Five of a Kind' and we'd love you to join in.  If you visit our challenge page you'll also see some very interesting news.  I'm very excited about it and I'm sure you will be too!  Our sponsors for this challenge are All Dressed Up!

Ok, back to my card.  I've used one of our fab sponsor images and gone all Christmassy!  I think this is my first Christmas card of the year, I'm not very organised at the moment!

I've coloured the image with Promarkers to match with the rather lovely Dovecraft papers that were a present from one of my crafty friends.  The Christmas Tree die was a magazine freebie ages ago but this is it's first outing and it cuts beautifully!  The Precious Stars dies are from Memory Box.  My 'Five of the Same' are the olive green gems.  I've made a fancy fold card that was demonstrated at a recent Docrafts demo by the lovely Geraldine Carruthers.  It's a very simple yet effective fold using just one A4 sheet of card.

That's all from me just now.  Have a great week.

Hugs, Shona xx
