Good Morning Everyone,

It is time for a new challenge at As You Like It and for this one we would like you to tell us whether your prefer to make cute or traditional Christmas cards (and don't forget to say why please).

I do love making cute cards, but when I think about it, they are not that suitable for a lot of my older relatives and friends and, as I have an abundance of cute, I opted for the more traditional type this time.

I have used my Memory Box pine trees die and used snippets of glitter for the top one and green snippets from a Christmas paper pad for the bottom.  The outlines are in silver mirri and the sentiment which is from a Woodware set has been silver embossed. Clear sparkly gems were also added.  Quite fiddly to fit all the little pieces in, but I like the final effect.

We hope you will be able to join us in the Christmas challenge and look forward to seeing your makes.

I would like to enter these challenges:

Aud Sentiments - Anything Goes + a sentiment
Dream Valley - All that Glitters
CCC Digi Creations - Christmas
Ellibelle's Crafty Wednesday - Christmas/Holidays
Tuesday Throwdown - Fall/Holiday
Cute Card Thursday - Anything Goes

Thank you for visiting and I hope you have a good weekend.
