Christmas is coming ...

Hello and Good Morning!

It's time for a new challenge at City Crafter this morning but before I get into that can I just say how dreadfully sorry I am to hear of the devastation in US Midwest following the Tornadoes... 

I cannot begin to comprehend the plight of those who have been affected both there and in the Philippines ... The images we are seeing are horrendous
My heart and my prayers go out to you all ... 

This week at City Crafter we have the lovely Charlene hosting for us with her theme
 Decorate It
 Char is asking that we create a project that uses a wreath ... 



This is the first Christmas card I've made this year ... I'm so behind I know ... but with the postage rates and the cost of supplies I have decided to send mostly shop bought cards this year ... (Gasp)!
So here's my card



One of the many gifts I received from my beautiful friend Rebecca was a Christmas stamp set which included this sweet little deer, the snowflake and the sentiment ... 


I cut my sparkly wreaths using the Cameo and fussy cut the little deer ... I used a white gel pen to add a few details to him first and a black pen to give him some hooves and a nose ... then a sparkly eye


Our Guest Designer this week and for the following 3 weeks is the lovely 
Please hop over to the blog and take a look at her lovely creation together with those of the rest of the team ... The winner of this challenge will also have a Guest spot with us at CCCB so get creating and link up your entry Here


Thanks so much for your visit ... Have a lovely day and keep safe

Love your darling little deer, and when I first looked at it, I thought I wonder what die that is I haven't seen before...so cute...love it...then I read it was a stamp...adorable!! I know I say this a lot, but it is so soft and pretty...elegant and cute!! Yes, the news has been terrible lately and Sunday's tornados were awful I haven't seen too much of it though as we lost our power in that storm, and as of now it is still off....but I am thankful we still have our home, I thought at one point the roof was going, a tremendous roar....will send you an email as soon as we get our power restored!!
