DT Card for Holly & Ivy Christmas Challenge #12

Good morning,

I'm still enjoying my summer holidays although now I'm well into my second full week they will soon be coming to an end (boo).  On the plus side it won't be too long now until the October break and I'm hoping I'll be able to take a few days off then too, fingers crossed!  One good thing about being on holiday (and not being away) is that there's more time to craft - yay!  and I don't feel so guilty about staying up late to colour or more likely for me spending valuable potential crafting time mooching around Pinterest looking for ideas and inspiration lol!

So today I'm sharing my DT card for our latest Holly & Ivy Christmas Challenge, as usual it's a just for fun anything goes challenge - as long as it is Christmas themed.  Why not join us and get ahead for Christmas?  I actually spent a couple of hours the other day putting inserts into and bagging up my recent cards and I was amazed at how many I've accumulated already!

Anyway, back to my card...  My card for the challenge features a new Magnolia stamp, well new to me but secondhand, I bought it recently off a local buy, swap, sell Facebook page!  I got this one and two LOTV stamps for a bargain price and I don't think any of them were ever inked up!  I on the other hand couldn't wait to get stamping and colouring with them!

The papers are old magazine freebies and I've used my new X-cut border punch for the first time so I've used both old and new supplies!

Materials used:
The Day Before Christmas - Noel Tilda rubber stamp
LOTV Sentiment Stamp
Holly Hobbie papers (magazine freebie)
X-cut Oval, Scalloped Oval & Label dies
X-cut Dotted Scallop Border Punch
Kraft cardstock, buttons, twine and pearls from

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Hugs, Shona xx
