Mistletoe Kids

Well, it's a gloomy old day here in Kent, hope it's better where you are! I have another Christmas card today, but firstly I wanted to remind everyone that the Mega Christmas Challenge over at Passion For Promarkers is only half way through and will end January 1st.  
Team 1 are showing their cards today, so please pop over for some inspiration.  There are some wonderful prizes up for grabs and with 2 weeks still to go you have plenty of time to get your entry in! 

There are several challenges this week asking us to make Christmas cards with traditional images or colours and seeing as my last few Christmas cards have all been pink or blue or brown, I thought it was time to make one using good old red and green, this one is for my Mum and Dad. I had a very lucky run of winning prizes back in the Autumn and bought this lovely stamp with an LOTV voucher won at Divas By Design. It's been sitting on my desk for ages waiting to be used! I tend to be inspired by the wonderful creations made using these stamps, but am a bit afraid of using them myself as I'm not sure I can do them justice, lol! But I'm glad I took the plunge with this one, I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.
