Happy Little Stampers Christmas challenge ......

Happy Monday evening folks ......

I know, Christmas is probably the last thing on your mind right now ....... it's hard to feel festive with all this gorgeous weather we've been having but ........ it is time for this month's Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge ..... Ho! Ho! Ho!

We've got the usual Anything Goes theme, with his month's optional twist being .....


As with all the Happy Little Stampers Challenges there's a $20 Gift Certificate for the challenge winner, to spend in the HLS store ...... and don't forget if the winner has used HLS stamps on their project then the prize amount is DOUBLED!

OK ..... now for a little inspiration.  How full of joy does this little chap look .....

CAS, one layer, great for posting.  Perfect for all those cards we need to send!

The image is from Penny Black .... stamped and coloured with a little Distress ink

He's sooo cute!!

I've added a few dots of glitter glue onto the falling snow ......

and smooshed a little under his feet .....

A simple sentiment adds the finishing touch ......

Check out the HLS Blog for more festive inspiration from the rest of the Design Team and then join in the fun.  See you in gallery!

Happy stamping!

This is actually my last post as part of the HLS Christmas Challenge DT ....... sigh!
It was a hard decision to make ...... there's been a few recently!  I won't go into all the details but, it's time for a change.
I've had a ball working as part of one of the best DT's out there.  Thanks to Kylie for having me on the team ..... but don't worry you can't get rid of me that easily, I still have Christmas cards to make so you might just find me joining in the fun now and again (and I'm not leaving the Happy Little Stampers family completely)

Thanks for popping by ....... enjoy the rest of your day.
We've had the family round today for another BBQ ..... I can't remember the last time I actually cooked a whole meal in the kitchen! 
Both of the kids had the night off after a rather busy start to TT Race Week, so we thought we'd make the most of it!
Time to relax in the hot tub now .....

Cheerio until next time .....
