Blue and Brown



Gosh another weekend just came and went in a flash. I really do think a three day weekend would be a great idea. LOL. No matter. Got lots of xmas present wrapping done last night. Phew it takes a while when you have three kids and we have to spend xmas eve putting together their bikes from Santa. Hopefully it won't take that long.

On to my card. I have combined three challenges with this one. Firstly Stampin' for the Weekend have a colour challenge of Blue and Brown. Such non traditional Christmas colours here but I made it for my MIL and think she will love it. At least she is one of the people that I will give a card to that won't chuck it in the bin when Christmas is over. LOL. I used the sketch from Friday Sketchers for this card and just love the simplicity of it again this week. It is also topped off with some Just Magnolia It's Christmas theme this week. Phew. So glad I was able to combine so many challenges. I am slowly getting the rest of my own Christmas cards done and should be finished by the end of this week when I desperately need to send them by. Hope everyone has done their cards. I think next year I will be making at least one xmas card a week so I don't have to panic at the end of the year.

Edit: Stamp, DP and lace were all purchased from Magnolia Down Under Store.

bye for now.

Products: Magnolia stamp; Kaisercraft stamp; Magnolia DP; SU card; MDU lace ribbon; P2 roses;Versamark ink; Gelatins Northern Lights embossing powder; Kindyglitz.
