Hello, how are you?
Here we are barrelling relentlessly towards Christmas. There's no stopping it, no matter how hard we wish for more time....
Friday December the 1st today and a new Daring Cardmakers Challenge - and as its the first Friday of the month it's anElemental Inspiration Photo Challengeto give the starting point. you need to do to join in is to choose at least 3 elements from the picture to use on your card.There are lots of lovely possibilities, such as the tree, hearts, stars, the textures and patterns of the blanket, floor and bricks, Nordic style elements.... etc
From the photo I chose to use the stocking, the gift and the tree. I was going to make miniature gift bags as in the photo, but then remembered the lovely Christmas minis die from Cuttlebug. Its pretty old, but comes out again most years. I tried to use the crisp Nordic style too, and also added a few stars, including red glittery ones like the one on the top of the tree in the picture.

That's all for today, I hope you'll pop across to the Daring Cardmakers blog to see how the rest of the team have used the picture - and of course, we'd love you to join in.
