Countdown to christmas!

Hi again! On our WCMD weekend away, we had a Christmas theme, which is probably good, because we're going away mid-December, so I need to be organised!

This  card is for the Merry Monday challenge, where we've been challenged to use neon colours on our holiday cards. I was lucky enough to be able to play with the WPlus9 new release, because Chupa is on the DT.

I inked the background stamp from WPlus9's Snowflake Backdrop with Pickled Raspberry and Peacock Feathers distress Inks , spritzed the stamp and stamped on water colour paper. The die-cut sentiment is made with a Wplus9 die.
After getting to play with the WPlus9 goodies, we all plan to buy them!

Next up is another card for the Festive friday challenge. I had 1/2 made this a couple of weeks ago and was prompted by the sled in the inspiration photo, to finish my card.

I'm not too happy with the layout of this card - I think I will make the dog and sleigh smaller next time. They were cut with my Silhoutte. 

I believe a sled could be considered as transport, so I'm entering this card in the Simon Wednesday challenge - Transport it.

I still have a few more Christmas cards to share, including one which was made for last weeks MM (I missed the deadline), so I'll have another post up soon!


  1. Love the neon & the scotty dog!

  2. Love your take on the "transport" theme - very cute card - love the scottie dog!!

    Thanks for playing along with us at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.
