I hope you are all having a lovely Christmas and finding time to craft. Over at rainbow Lady's challenge blog this week the choice is yours, so do join us. My choice is my daughter's birthday card. She was never thrilled with a December birthday but as grown up does not mind so much. She requested a mask on her card so here it is. The two background papers are from Booland designs and the mask is from Crafty Ann. It has been glittered and a jewel added. This is an 8 by 8 card. Do let us see your choice of design this week.

This is a shaped card from JS Thomas Kinkade CD. It has been decoupaged and glittered. The lovely glow is down to the artist though. I do hope you will join us to celebrate a White Christmas over at Rainbow Lady's Challenge blog.

On reflection this may be end of 40's start of 50's but I was so moved by the story and wedding photo I heard on The Antiques Roadshow that I could not resist this image on the MCS Cd A Carousel of Classics- The 40s and 50s. The backing papers and embellishments were all printed from a Digilicious digikit called Vintage Wedding. I layered up the papers, distressing some and decoupaged the tag. I also distressed the photo. Thank you for stopping by to look. All you comments are much appreciated.

My musical angel and backing paper is from Artylicious CD "Season's Greetings". I stamped and embossed some music onto the backing paper in silver pearl and also in black. The angel I decoupaged. Do take a look at Rainbow Lady's Challenge blog and I hope you will feel inspired to join us this week.

Had lots of fun selecting images from the Dover Steampunk CD to create a background and some elements to add later. The tag is distressed with DI Vintage Photo and my real stamp is my chap from Personal Impressions. Thank you for coming by to look I know how busy everyone is at this time of year. I do appreciated your comments.
I had fun decoupaging and decorating this tree from Jayne Nestorenko's CD Winter Tales. I also had a bit of a play creating a card digitally and thought I would show you the results. I worked in Serif's Craft Artist and made a background paper using a topper of a decorated tree. I added a Christmas tree bauble and added the original topper inside the bauble. The rest are serif embellishments which I coloured and glittered to match the paper. Lots of fun. I hope you will join us over at Rainbow Lady's challenge blog and show us your Christmas Tree.

My whiskered friend is the dormouse from the MCS CD "A Very Important Date". He is decoupaged and mounted on a gold mirri mat edged with a Martha Stewart punch. I added some flowers to echo the ones in the background. The card is 8 by 8.
Thank you for coming by to look, all your comments are greatly appreciated.

I have chosen Ribbons & bows/Baubles/Gold for my combination. The baubles are from Crafty Ann's metallic set, in silver, and I added some gold glitter. The backing paper is from her Poinsettia papers and the ribbon and pin from my stash. Choosing the elements for this challenge is such fun do take a look at what the rest of the design team have chosen and be inspired to join us over at Crafy Ann's Challenge blog.

I decided to use one of the lovely photos John took of our local park, last winter. Hence my Carol choice of "See Amid The Winter's Snow". This is an 8 by 8 scrapbook page designed with elements from Pam Lefors Aquaflurry kit and sheet music from The Graphics Fairy. Our walk that day was cold but quite magical as we got there before anyone else had left their footprints!
I do hope you will join us this week over at Rainbow Lady's and share your choice of Christmas Carol with us.
