Twice in one day ........

Hello ..... me again!

What am I talking about twice ..... this is actually the third post today!  You'll have to excuse me .... it must be this cold that I've got!  Yes ..... I've the sniffles!  They must have sneaked into my suitcase on the way home.

It's Blog challenge time again though, and we're staying in the festive mood from earlier, with the Happy Little Stampers Christmas challenge ...... mince pie anyone?  I'm being serious we've actually bought our first mince pies of the year!!! ..... OMG!!! Blame M&S .... they were there on the self and I couldn't resist!

Anyway ....... as the challenge theme says it's Anything Goes ...... with an optional twist.  For October that twist is .....

I've used the CUTplorations Winter Landscape die to create my silhouette .....

Simply cut from black cardstock and then layered on top of a piece of white cardstock embossed using the Softly Falling Embossing Folder from Stampin Up! ..... instant snowy sky!

A really quick and easy design but very effective I think ..... great if you're making a whole load of cards and easy to post too!

A simple festive greeting stamped along a strip of white card with one embossed in gold finishes off the card nicely.

Well I think that's enough festive inspiration for today don't you .... there's still 81 days to go!!

As always there's a prize up for grabs for the challenge winner ...... a $20 Gift Certificate to spend in the HLS Store.  Is it time you started thinking about Christmas!?

Thanks for popping by again ...... it's been a long day today.
Time for a glass of red I think .... another one!

Cheerio until next time .....
