Hi All,  now that I have finished making the Christmas cards, I must start and show them.  This is one of the last ones I made, it is probably a 'one off' - due to the fact that I stuck the matted image on the card upside down!!  So... it couldn't be wasted, hence the Easel card, inspired by the challenge at AllSorts this week which is Christmas Easel card.  The image is a new stamp, bought at the Purely Papercrafts show a couple of weeks ago, it is by IndigoBlu,  I heat embossed with Stamp-N-Stuff EP in Jeweled Gold, it really does have a great sparkle.  The snowflake corners are Clarity, the sentiment is an old one from Anitas.
Found a couple of other challenges for this card:

  4 Crafty Chicks - Die Cuts - its a Nesti scalloped oblong under the sentiment.
  For Your Inspiration - Photo - Black & Gold
  Stamp & Doodle - Embossing
  Always Something Creative - Must Sparkle
  The Craft Garden - Christmas - No Red or Green
  HeartSong Inspirations - Embossing/and or 3 layers
  One Stitch at a Time - Christmas
  Stamp, Scrap & Doodle - Monochromatic

Before I go I would just like to say 'Hello' to Monica - my new follower, its lovely to see you, and thanks for following me.

I hope you all have a good weekend, weather forecast isn't too good, but it just might be perfect crafting weather!

Take care
