Christmas Everywhere!

Hello and welcome, it's a new month for Stamping Sensations and Penny black & More @ Allsorts challenges, if you didn't get the chance to join in last month's challenges this could be the one for you.





















At Stamping Sensations this month the theme is 'Festive Florals', and of course the first thing that sprung to my mind was Poinsettia's, I die cut them out of vellum for a softer effect as I thought they went better with the papers that was supplied to us by one of our sponsors Once Upon A Stamp.  I cut the trellis edge with a die on the front to give it some shape.

We have sponsorship this Month from




And of course, the Design Team have created some stunners to inspire you. Please do pay them a visit to their individual blogs - it means a lot to know you appreciate their efforts.






















And now onto my second challenge creation, this time for Penny black & More @ Allsorts, where the theme is 'Anything Christmas' So you can use any of your Christmas images for this challenge.  I used one of my favourite Christmas pads, Nordic Christmas by Trimcraft.  They seemed to go well with the penguins knitwear.

We have prizes from Penny Black, Crafts U Love, Crafts Ribbons  Now isn't that a lot of prizes, definitely worth getting your animal stamps out isn't it!!!!!!

Difficult choices today Tracy, I just love the elegant design of the first and the soft blues, then I come to the cute trio of Penguins and I think they steal the show.

Hope you have a good Sunday.
