stampin for the weekend

this card was for the challenge on stampin for the weekend but when i have gone onto their blog they have suspended it because of a death in one of the girls family and also ill health so my thoughts go out to them all. the stamp is another sugar nellie called 'pip with presents. i have shrunk a christmas tree and cut out 3 presents as embellishments. thanks for dropping in,i probably won't be around for the next few days i am babysitting george and sophie x

the sugar bowl # 19 (plus pink and brown)

well i didn't manage to get anything done yesterday but i have made up for it tonight. the first post is for the challenge set by marlene at the sugar bowl, which is the sketch plus the colour scheme of pink and brown. not a traditional colour for a christmas card i know but i think it has turned out really well. the stamp is a sugar nellie called 'honey's snowman' and the rest is from my goodies. i used a cuttlebug embossing folder for the background. sorry the picture is on the wonk but it was the only way to get the background to look the right colour,(all to do with lighting apparently!!!!) i will be back in a while with card number 2.
