Vintage Christmas

Good morning to all my crafty friends and followers and a special welcome today to my new follower Gran Margaret I hope you enjoy my blog so glad you are following me.
I know what your thinking now just finished Easter yesterday and she''s posting a Christmas card !! Well the card is to launch a new challenge over at Crafting by Designs. The theme is Get Ready for Christmas. We ran some challenges with this theme in the lead up to Christmas and they were so popular that the team decided to have this theme once a month throughout the year. Its a great way to build the Christmas cards up during the year

We have two sponsors this week

Prize - $15 credit to the store

Prize - choice of 3 single images up to $10

I decided on a collage sheet from Lunagirl Christmas in Pink for my design and this is one of the images from the sheet.
