Not long now .......

Happy Thursday ......

Only four more sleeps until the big day ..... that's come around fast!!!  We're getting there with all the preparations ..... slowly, but the list is getting shorter.

One family who have had a very special delivery this Christmas is the Russ family.  Baby Winter Rainbow came into the world yesterday ...... and she's an adorable addition to the STAMPlorations family.  Huge Congratulations to Shery and the family ...... Kat has a baby sister, the best Christmas present ever!!

Speaking of STAMPlorations, it's time for my last challenge piece of 2017 ........ for the STAMPlorations CAS Card challenge

The theme is Anything Goes ..... anything CAS that is.  There's also the optional colour twist, and for December that colour is ......... GOLD

Another of the STAMPlorations Typografia stamps ...... Most Wonderful Time.  If you're anything like me you'll be singing along now ....... sorry!

I've stamped using Versamark ink, and then heat embossed in gold ..... simple

I've then die cut the phrase using one of the CUTplorations Crazy Double Running Stitch Nesting Rectangle Dies

And attached it to the front of my card using foam pads

To finish off I added a couple of holly leaves punched from glitter card and coloured using my Copic Markers ...... as I didn't have any green glitter card I had to use white instead.  The Copic Markers do a great job of adding colour to the glitter without taking any of the sparkle away.

So that's it ..... all my Design Team inspiration pieces for 2017 are all done! 
It's been another fabulous year ..... thank you to everyone for your support.  Here's to another year of challenge fun in 2018.

Thanks for popping by ...... enjoy the rest of your day.
I'm off out for a little bit of late night shopping to get the last of the stocking fillers.

Have a lovely Christmas and New Year.

Cheerio until next time ....
