Beary Christmas & Magnolia Stamp Club

Good morning

There are lots of Christmas challenges around in blogland at the moment so it inspired me to make a Christmas card.  I have lots of unused packs of Christmas papers and had every intention of not buying any new papers this year.  However, when I popped into The Range on Saturday I just had to buy the new Papermania 'A Silent Night' papers.  I love every design in this pack and some of the sheets have special finishes.  I think I will be making most of my Christmas cards with these papers this year because they are so lovely :o)

Image ~ LOTV 'Xmas Ted Presents for 2' coloured with Promarkers
Papers ~ Papermania 'A Silent Night'
Flowers/Leaves ~ Prima 'Holiday Poinsettia'
Gems ~ Stash
Brad ~ Papermania pearl brad
Sentiment ~ Created in Word and mounted on a Spellbinders Fancy Tags die cut

LOTV ~ Sketch
Ooh La La ~ Christmas in July
Fussy and Fancy ~ Christmas in July
Cute Card Thursday ~ Get a head start (Christmas cards)
Pear Tree Designs ~ Glitter/Sparkles
Rosie-D's ~ Burgandy, Pink & Cream
Magical Crafts ~ Christmas in July
Stampavie and more ~ Anything goes

Chloe hasn't been to school the last two days because she isn't feeling well.  She slept quite a lot yesterday but seems a little brighter today so we are going to do some cardmaking together after I have done the housework.

PS:  For anybody waiting for the Summer 2010 Magnolia Stamp Club, I just thought I would let you know that mine has just been delivered so not long to wait now.  I won't tell you what's in it as I don't want to spoil the surprise :o)
