Bah! Humbug! #1

Good Morning

I started making this card a few days ago for the Bah! Humbug! challenge but only got round to finishing it last night.  Bah! Humbug! is a new Christmas Challenge and the idea is to take the stress out of Christmas cards by making one a week.  Sounds like a good idea to me and I am going to try my best to play along every week.  The theme this week was to recycle something from a shop bought Christmas card or wrapping paper etc.  Both the image and sentiment on my card were recycled from a shop bought Christmas card and cut out with nesties.

Image & Sentiment ~ Recycled from shop bought Christmas card
Papers ~ Craft Creations
Flowers ~ Crafty Feeling
Holly ~ Wild Orchid Crafts
Ribbon & Gems ~ Stash

Just a quick post for me because Chris is off work at the moment because of the bad weather (he is a builder so can't lay bricks in this weather) so we are going to pop out for a pub lunch in a while.

Thanks for stopping by.
