New Christmas challenge at CCW

Good morning!
 
I hope by now those of you dealing with the terrible snow storms are over the worst of it.
We've been very fortunate here with just a little sprinkling of snow.
 
I'm back today to tell you about a new monthly challenge over at Creative Craft World.
For those of you who want to get a head start on your Christmas cards this will be perfect for you.
The challenge is called BtCR (Beat the Christmas Rush) and the idea is to create some Christmas cards each month and add them to the linky HERE.
By the time 25th November comes round you could have all your cards ready in time for posting in December!
 
This is a card I made as a Christmas thank you.
The image is a digi stamp from Tiddly Inks.
 
I coloured it with Copics and tied some twine around the centre to look like a present.
I stamped the sentiment (Stampin' Up) and punched it out with the Tiny Tags punch.
To add a little sparkle I outlined parts of the image with Stickles glitter glue.
 

Thank you so much for visiting today.
And to all my followers thank you for sticking with me.
I haven't been able to blog lately with my health playing up and other things having to take priority
but I hope to be back soon when everything settles down.
 
Hope you have a lovely day,
Take care.
Sarah xx
