Christmas card challenge

New challenge blog  

There is a brand new challenge blog joined us in Blogland this week & while I have my Christmas stash still on the dresser I couldn't resist taking part...

This weeks theme is anything goes...

I have used Basic Grey papers & a couple of Stampotique stamps.. I wanted a shabby rustic look as I've made it for my DD & it's what she likes! The mushrooms are in reverse as I stamped onto the back of some BG paper so they would appear patterned on the front, forgot I'd have to fill in the details but I'm quite pleased..

Every Saturday Hazel will be setting a brand new challenge & also offering some great challenge candy..

Hopefully with Hazel's inspiration I might be organised for next Christmas!

Thanks for calling. Have a great week. Gez.xx
