Papertake Weekly ,,,, Last Christmas card of the year ! :-)

Hi all :-) Only 5 more sleeps till Santa drops down the chimney laden with pressies and stopping for the traditional glass of sherry and a mince pie ,, and of course the juicy carrot for Rudolph :-) ,,, can’t wait !! :-) I have a confession ,,, I had to buy cards ,, I just didn’t have enough so next year I will have to go into mass production mode :-)

This week on the Papertake Weekly Challenge we are making the last Christmas card of the year, so I hope you will join us ,,, IF, unlike me yours are all done ,, you could get the 1st one ready for next year !!

We are sponsored by our lovely teamies Andrea and Mary, aka The Ribbon Girl so a fab prize on offer for one lucky entrant :-)

My last card just HAD to be a cute House Mouse, ( I know I know,, it’s an addiction !!! :-) so I used this gorgeous I Cane Count on You stamp, coloured with Copics and glittered with Star Dust Stickles. I used Wonky Rectangle nesties to cut out the image and the mats for layering. The papers are Echo Park , I think from the Holly Jolly Christmas Pack ? ,, not sure tho. The red pearls are from Pizzazz Aplenty and the gorgeous While/Silver Glitter Organza and Button Twine are from The Ribbon Girl :-)

Thanks for looking :-) Our lovely GD’s and the DT have made some gorgeous cards
for you to see so please pop by to see them :-)

I would like to wish you all a Very Merry Christmas and the Happiest of New Years :-)
