Festive 48 - Week 19


This weekend, we have summer weather in the south east of England, but I'm keeping up with my vow to make a Christmas card a week.

The central image, sentiment, holly paper and holly frame (which I traced and cut in the Silhouette) , are all from Papermania Enchanted Fairies Christmas CD.

I used a sketch from Tis the Season  and Jingle Belles .(Joint challenge sketch plus bling) .


Just to recap, I have challenged myself to make a Christmas card every week , and post it here (to make sure I do it!) . If I do this, by the beginning of December I will have 48 Christmas cards. I have also issued an invitation to anyone who would like to join me by linking up ONE card each week. 

Thank you to everyone who's joined me so far. I love seeing your cards. 

As well as Jingle Belles/ Tis the Season I'd like to enter: 
Holly Jolly Christmas greenery 
ABC Christmas Challenge  santa/elf
Winter Wonderland  holly
Sweet Stampin Christmas  santa
Christmas Cards All Year Round santa

Marina, this is such a beautiful Christmas card! I think it's great that you're doing one card a week. I'm trying to do something similar...four cards each time I do our challenge. I haven't been keeping up the past few times, but I do have a good stash going. :) Thanks for playing with us at 'Tis the Season.
