Coffee & Cream Christmas

My mojo has up and left for a holiday! I have discovered that there are disadvantages to working for your husband, one of them being that a cold is not a good enough excuse not to go to work :( so by the time I’ve got home in the past few days all I’ve wanted to do is curl up on the sofa and feel sorry for myself! However, I hate not posting at least once a week, so I’ve got a card to show today that I made for J & C Creations a little while ago on the theme of ‘Contemporary Christmas’. I had already made a pink & blue card for their monthly challenge and so decided on a brown & cream colour scheme for this stepper card.
