Keeping up the my tradition of completing my weekly Christmas card at the last minute here is this week's offering. Even later than usual because I've been gadding about a lot and haven't had a great deal of time to actually craft : (
For this card I used a beautiful Bearly Mine Design Insert Paper for both the topper and the inside. I decoupaged the labels, added a pretty toning bow, tiny pearl trim, a silver metal snowflake, some turquoise gems and gold glitter. Couldn't have been easier and quicker - the cutting out of the label motif four times took the longest. The greeting stamp is one I've used several times from a Docrafts freebie, stamped in Versamark and embossed in gold.
I've forgotten where I got the sentiment - I found it in one of the many notebooks I've kept over the years - but I rather like it so used it here because for Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Card Challenge the requirement this week was for the sentiment to be the main feature.
So I hope to submit this card for the challenge on http://craftyhazelnutschristmaschallenge.blogspot.com/ - whoops, just made it in time :)
I'm also submitting the card to Snoflakes Christmas Card on Docrafts.

If the weather is fine tomorrow the EM wants to take me for a spin in the car to Portpatrick, Galloway. If it's not fine I'll be up here sorting out my haul from the SECC and playing with my new toys :)
I wish you all a great weekend and happy crafting.
