Bah humbug!!

Making Christmas cards in this weather is certainly a challenge lol. It was easier when we had all that snow and it looked Christmassy outside. Anyway this is what I have come up with for this weeks Bah Humbug challenge which is to use new or nearly new stash. This was really hard for me as I haven't bought many crafty goodies for ages. Anyway this is my effort - I quite like it apart from the wonky eyelets, that'll teach me to start crafting before I've woken up won't it?

I've used bp and cs from an Ann Griffin kit I've had for years, the ribbon is also from the same kit. I love the colours - perfect for this weeks challenge from Fab's Big Christmas Card Challenge which is to use vintage colours and/or stripes and the theme is 'Merry and Bright' (hence the sentiment which is from Elusive images. The main image is from Elusive images and is stamped on acetate and glittered using my new glitters. The bell is from my stash so I'll be entering this card into the ABC Christmas Challenge which this week is 'B is for Bells' with the extra of using glitter - I just love using glitter so I really enjoyed making this

Thanks for looking
