Christmas at Fab'n'Funky

Good day everyone,

The temp outside is 22 deg.C but inside we're preparing for Christmas that is!

Our new challenge at 


Our sponsor is the wonderful

They generously supplied us with our digis this week and I choose
"Holly Stag" which can be found here.  
 I also used the sentiment that you will see on the inside.

 I used my new MB Pine Needle Border die on the top.
Silver bands and ribbon are Webster's Pages
Rhinestones are from Recollections
Silk ribbon is from Stamp Simple Ribbon Store
Sentiment:  LOTV
DP is by Nit-Wit available at Lili of The Valley - Winter Wishes

Here is a photo of the inside where I used one of the sentiments that are included in the  Holly Stag set.

I would like to enter the following challenges:
Merry Monday Christmas Challenge - Bingo (die cut, ribbon, kraft)

What a beautiful Christmas card! Nice image and LOVE the embellies, very elegant. We regularly get 40 deg.C at Christmas so it doesn't feel too unusual to me - heat+Christmas :-)) BTW, thanks for visiting my blog and your supportive comments - they really mean a lot. I guess I've just had a big year health-wise with kidney stones, gallbladder op blah blah, in fact it just seems to have been "drama" since the twins were born with Matt's accident and all. As my Mum says, it'll all come out in the wash :-)) Happy Crafting, Donna xx
