Merry Christmas to all my blogging buddies!


I'm finally feeling all festive and jolly, woohoo! I've made lots of fudge fridge magnets and notebooks and finshed my slippers and wrapped up gifts, all to be delivered today with a true smile on my face and a genuine desire to spread some good cheer, so I'd also like to take a moment to say Happy Holidays and THANK YOU to everyone who visits my little blog and leaves such lovely comments, I've made this card for you all :D This sweet little digi is Jusy from the Sweet Gothic World Kids collection at Simply Betty Stamps, and she seemed to personify the excitement I'm feeling. Papers are by Crafty Chaos Designs
This is also an entry into the following cjallenges:

Etsy Inspired Challenges - The inspiration this week is the wonderful Ling Glass shop, and I've used inspiration from several of the glass pendants available. Firstly, I used the colours from this one, this one, and this one. Then I tried to make the squares down the side look like little pendants similar to this one and this one. I also chose two backing papers that had pendant-like designs, and I made my ribbon across the middle curvy instead of straight to represent the swirls and curves and spirals in many of the designs.
Creative Inspirations - Christmas
2 Sisters Challenge - Christmas
Frosted Designs - inspired by a Christmas song
Thanks for looking, I wish each and every one of you a wonderfully happy holiday season :D
