Now let me show you what I created for the Challenge #7 Blog Hop!



For the Christmas themed card, I have chosen Hettie Hedgehog's Christmas List. I decided to go with a square card to give myself plenty of room to decorate.  I began with a white shimmer card and used some papers from the Kaisercraft Mint Wishes 6 1/2" Paper Pad to build up the layers.  I die-cut the brown doily (don't ask me the brand of die, I have so many...). I coloured Mary's image with Copics to match the colours in the paper pad, added some flowers and a flair from my stash and of course, my go-to chipboard from Make It Crafty. Christmas is coloured with a Copic and the frame is embossed with  Stampendous Fran-tage Shabby white embossing enamel and Wink of Stella to finish.  I have put an insert in the card in case my recipient would like to re-gift the card  I have used washi tape (gold with stars) so it can be easily removed and the sentiment is from good-old Google.


Well, I hope you are enjoying our Challenge #7/Blog Hop 2017 celebrating Christmas and be sure to get to "hopping" and leaving a comment on each DT's blog, as well as getting your Christmas card entered into the challenge.  Have fun!
