Sugar Bowl : "It's Christmas"



I love Thursdays..its Sugar Bowl time!! And my little toot goes to playgroup so I get a couple of hours to myself ! LOL!
Well, yes you have seen correctly.....This week dig out your Christmas bits and bobs and get making a Christmas card!!
If you are like me then you have limited crafting space, so on Dec 26th up went all my Christmas stuff in a box and safely stored underneath our bed for another year. So, when I saw this challenge I had poor hubby lifting up one end of our King size bed while I crawled underneath, hoping I would not be flattened underneath, while I retrieved my Christmas box!
I had fun playing with sparkly bits again, but now my box is safely back in its home for at least another 6 months. You hear that Gayle??? No more Christmas challenges!! (you know I'm only having a laugh:))
This weeks prize over at the Sugar Bowl is a whopping great £30 voucher to spend on whatever you like. Now go on girls....drag your Christmas stash out. It will be worth it!!
Now go check out the other girls cards and get your inspiration flowing! You have 2 weeks to create your Christmas card. However on Sunday we will be posting your new Sugar Sugar project, so you have a few more days left to make your tag cards.
Have a wonderful day,
Judy x

oh and what a fab christmas card it is hun, well worth crawling under the bed, what a great start! love the background music sheet that you have added and the holly and the berries from brads very clever wouldn't have thought of that.
love the layout to. oh and the inside is scrummy.
to get the two tones on the flowers i just inked the whole stamp in one colour and then rubbed another colour just around the edges.
