Welcome to the weekend .....

Happy Saturday evening ......

I hope you're enjoying your weekend.
Only 5 days to go until we get the keys to the new house so we thought we'd better make a start on the packing and the clearing out today ........ the boxes are starting to pile up!
We've also been out ordering new furniture ....... a new bed for the little man's/guest room, and ....... we ordered the new dining table!  Yes ....  we decided to go for it.  It's going to look soooo nice.

It's also time for another Blog Challenge.  Are you feeling a little festive?  Well I've got just the challenge for you .... this month's Christmas Challenge from Happy Little Stampers gets underway today.  The theme is Anything Goes with the optional twist of using ......

HOLLY ..... very festive! 

I've gone for CAS again ....... great when you've got lots of cards to make

The holly sprigs are from the HLS Christmas Joy set  ....... stamped and heat embossed with a gold powder, and then coloured using Zig Clean Colour Pens

I've fussy cut around the holly and then layered them onto the sentiment ......

From the same stamp set, embossed in gold again for a classic look, and then die cut

A touch of glitter glue to the berries and we're done ...... another Christmas card for the festive box.

As always the challenge is sponsored by the Happy Little Stampers Store .......

and the winner receives a $15 discount to spend in the shop.

Happy stamping!

Thanks for popping by .... enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Cheerio until next time .....
