CI #22 and #23 Christmas is so close!

ONLY 5 WEEKS till Christmas! Yikes!
with so much happening at this time of year we have 2 colour schemes and 3 weeks to play along- sounds good to me! 
I have chosen to go with the more traditional colour scheme of #23 but have tried to keep it simple and use some of my non christmas stamps! So I have used the gorgeous sunrays image from the Wherever You Go set, and the gorgeous red stars from the Stitched Felt Embellishments. At this time of year we all need to make use of shortcuts- and a ready embellishment works for me.

I have 2 designs and used the crumbcake for the starlight on the first one, and real red for the second one layer card.

The little sentiment flag comes from Teeny Tiny Sentiments which is an old favourite and go-to set for me and I only inked up the single word. 

This is the alternative colour scheme which also appeals but I ran out of time this week. Hope you can create something to share with us on our Facebook page.

Next on the hop is Bronwyn

I hope you have a creative week and remember, 
"don't just post online,
 post something pretty!"

cheers, Liz
