I'm sooooo excited! The new catalogue has gone live and is being really well recieved by everyone. For now it's just a quick scheduled post to share the card I've made for the blog.hop.  You should have come here from Dawn's blog if not hop on over and take a look at her creations.

My card for today is a christmas card.  I've used one of the gorgeous new In Colours - Lucky Limeade, teamed with Early Espresso, Whisper White and a touch of Cherry Cobbler.  The card actually started off life like this....

But something was missing so I added the banner, the greeting is from Something For Christmas.  This stamp is actually 3 greetings with a row of babubles underneath, I simply used my Cherry Cobbler marker to just ink up 'Season's Greetings'  Would you have imagined that bunting could turn into a christmas tree?  I've used the stamp set Penant Parade along with the co-ordinating Petite Penants Builder Punch (YAY! No more hand cutting the bunting!) The ribbon at the bottom is the beautiful 1/2" scallop dots ribbon in Chocolate Chip.  To add some texture I've used one of my favourite embossing folders, Perfect Polka Dots. I do LOVE my BigShot!

Of course no Christamas tree is complete without a bit of bling! I've used our self adhesive rhinestones - lovely!  That's all for now, hop onto Maggie's blog to see what she's created.  The full list of participants in the hop is below too if you get lost anywhere along the way!  Enjoy the rest of your weekend xx

Love it. I can't get past Christmas with my Pennant Parade at the moment - love how versatile it is. Great way to get the sentiment.
