Christmas on a sunny day

Wow, the sun is shining here and it's a glorious day :) But, I suddenly remembered I hadn't made a card for Craftyhazelnuts Christmas Card Challenge - which this week is to use buttons. A quick bit of rustling up and I hope one single button qualifies OK Hazel - it is a BIG one!!

As luck would have it, I decided to blitz my desk today before there was a total avalanche and a few things just screamed out to be used together :)

I used:

- C5 white card stock

- a quirky Santa sticker from Irene, made by PSX from the Christmas Follies set. Very similar to Penny Black Stickaroos and a happy and smiley set too - thanks again Irene!

- papers from Hot off the Press Forever Christmas cards paper stack, along with the little sentiments which were included

- red backing card from the snippets folder

- red velvet rick rack and red felt flowers (thank you Helena!), button from the button box as well as some bakers twine

- Josy Rose nail heads

Whoosh - done in time to catch Hazel's challenge! And, don't forget that Sunday is Rudolph Day over at Sandra's - and if you haven't come to play in the playground this week you could always combine a snippets card with Christmas over at Sandra's next week. Maybe there'll be a few Christmassy snippets flying round :)



  1. Hello Di

    Another brilliant card. I love the papers and embellishments especially your sentiment, it matches perfectly with Santa.


  2. Wahoo . . . another lovely Xmas card. Well done.

  3. Lordy don't back link this card for RD, or you will be at the blackboard with me writing lines!!!!! Great card btw,

  10. Hi Di

    A fabby Christmas card .. .. though Santa does look a little like he might need a diet.

    He must still be working off all those calories from the mincepies and sherry a few weeks ago!!! LOL!!!

    See you in the playground tomorrow.

    Love Jules xx
