MERRY CHRISTMAS ...
{DT Project Tammy's Scrapin Corner: Challenge #40}

We had a much more peaceful weekend compared to the previous one.  Only had to teach one scrapbooking class on Sunday morning. Which of course meant that I had some nice time on hands for new scrapbooking layout designs and of course some card design team creations.

This week our theme for Challenge #40 at Tammy's Scrapin Corner  is again  Christmas. I used the  Special Delivery image from QKR.  You can find it here.   Love this cute image.

Another centre step card. The image and sentiment were coloured with H2O's and dry chalks. The tags are all from Basic Grey and circle embellishments were created with circle punches and the buttons and copper discs on them has been in my stash for years.  The design papers are from PaperLoft.  The sentiment is a free download from Desert Diva (Hannelie).

I really do hope you will play along with our Christmas challenge this week at Tammy's Scrapin Corner.





So I am off again to join some challenges with this:

A huge thank you to everyone for leaving such wonderful love here.  Also a big welcome to all my new Followers and don't forget to enter my 400+ Follower Give Away here.
