Christmas Greetings

Welcome on this cold Sunday morning, 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 these could be the ones for you.

At Stamping Sensations this month the theme is 'Christmas Greetings' So get out your Christmas images and sentiments, as we ask for something with a Christmas sentiment on.  I love this stamp and the sentiment on it reads:-
Don't look for cherubs playing harps, golden winged and crowned
But consider the unlikely stranger ...... there are angels all around.

I love colouring this also love the fact I can just fill it with Glamour Dust, as it's quite a big detailed stamp I kept the layout quite simple.

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 for Penny black & More @ Allsorts, where the theme is 'Anything Christmas With A Stamp' So you can use any Christmas image just make sure you've stamped it and not a digi for this challenge.

I adore this stamp, has to be one of my all time favourite Christmas stamps, it is big and detailed just what I love for colouring.  But that does limit embellishments as too many take the detail away from the image I have found.  So my Spellbinder Poinsettia dies came in for this card, just love making Poinsettias with these dies as they are really good to use.

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

Now if you would like to be a GDT for us, all you need to do is make a creation to fit the theme following our rules.

Both gorgeous cards, Tracy, but the first one is my favourite. You are so right to keep the design simple and let the beautiful image speak for itself. Such a lovely sentiment too.
