Happy Christmas! (and a sneak peak!)

Today is Christmas Day so wherever you are today I do hope you have a very blessed day filled with joy, peace, lots of love and plenty of fun thrown in for good measure!

Here in Melbourne it started for me very early - Midnight Mass where I was singing in a choir for the first time in about 20 years! It was a quickly formed and not quite practised enough affair (or so it seemed to us) but we got applause afterwards so it must've been ok! And woke up to a beautifully sunny and warm (but not too hot) day and it has been a lovely time of catching up with family and friends and Christmas Dinner is almost ready…. :-)

So it is also time for this weeks sketch at The Paper Craft Crew - the Team have come up with a great and varied array of cards to inspire you so do go and check them out :-). Here is the sketch:

And here is my card :-)

Yes - this is a sneak peek of some of the items available in the upcoming Occasions Catalogue!

I couldn't resist the fabulous Butterfly Thinlit dies and the co-ordinating Butterfly Basics stamp - not to mention the fun Calypso Coral Pom Pom Trim - so fun!!

Card stock: Brushed Gold, Crisp Cantaloupe, Whisper White, Gold Foil Specialty
Designer Series Paper: Gold Soiree
inks: Pistachio Pudding(stamped off once) , Encore Gold, Crisp Cantaloupe
Stamps: Butterfly Basics (Sneek peak)
Accessories: Big Shot, Butterfly Thinlits and Calypso Coral Pom pom Trim (sneek peak), Large Polka Dots EF, Gold Ribbon

I can see this set is likely to be a popular one as it has so many images and a few sentiments as well. Wonderful when anything girly needed :-)

thanks for stopping by and I hope you are enjoying your Christmas Day and maybe you have a moment to check out all the great designs by the Team at The Paper Craft Crew this week and i look forward to seeing what you will create with this sketch.

Happy stamping until next time,
