I still need to make quite a few Christmas cards and love this Simon's Exclusive Nativity set, it reminds me of  Rennie Mackintosh style of art. Love it !!

 In keeping with the simplistic image I kept the card pretty CAS . I used a Falling Stars Stencil and embossing paste to create the sky.

Simon's December Kit card

 Happy Thanksgiving to all of my friends over on the other side of the pond. I hope you have a lovely day with your family and friends :-)

I am also here to share a card I made using the new December Card Kit.

This kit is super special !! It has 2 pots of embossing powder + a mini embossing ink pad  + loads of cardstock in my fave blues and aqua colours AND the stamp set is pretty awesome too !

I used a banner die to cut some Sea Glass Card, I then used the polka dot stamp to made a background using Sea Glass Ink  and then layered the vellum over the top.

and this is the lovely kit 'Winter Twinkle' :-)

Challenges :
Crafty Creations     -     Embossing
City Crafter            -      fave technique, heat embossing is one of my all time faves
Creative Moments     -    A/G + Sparkle
DoubleClick Skittles -   Birthday

Hope you all have a great week :-)
Happy Crafting

We are showcasing LAWN FAWN products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store
My daughter, Amy, asked me to make a special card for one of her bestest friends and she has a little pet hedgehog, so I thought this would be perfect for her :-)

Meet Penny, isn't she adorable !! :-)

 I tried to colour them a bit like Penny, which was easier said than done !  I love the background scene paper and didn't want to cover much of that up. I added some red stickles to their noses and star dust stickles here and there for extra sparkle.
