A vivid christmas

Another vivid christmas card..........am quite liking this pink/green combo, even though it isn't at all traditional..........so another one to pop in the box........thought I'd better get some cards made before The Creativity Boot Camp starts.....and I don't have time for them!!
Tilda coloured with SU crayons.........silver backing card.........PM papers........punched out snowflakes and sentiment.........and a fair sprinkling of Stickles.
Susie and Vikki's Christmas Club want 'anything goes'...........Creative Card Crew want 'pink and green'........My Time to Craft want 'vivid'.........Creative Inspirations want 'punches'... and Crafty Creations want 'favourite stamp' and Tilda certainly fits that category [as you may have noticed!!].
Our summer seems to have vanished as quick as it arrived.........but at least the rain has soaked the garden.......and meant I could do a lot of planting in the damp ground........though why does one day of rain bring out an army of weeds!!
The wonderful Lilli of the Valley are about to release a whole new set of stamps.......
so if you fancy winning a set of them....pop over to their blog.

Oh Jacky, You've made Tilda look as gorgeous as ever, fabulous job.

So cute! And I love pink and green for Christmas cards b/c it's so close to red and green!
Can't you just do cards as your medium for the Bootcamp? I'm either going to do photography or plaster or maybe art journaling.

And slugs. The rain seems to have brought our slugs back unfortunately.

I like Rinda's idea of doing cards for the boot camp. Then you'd be killing two birds with one stone. Oh, no..it's the birds we want to keep because they eat the slugs..

Great card Jacky :)
