Chalkboard Christmas

002

Hello crafty people!  I hope you have enjoyed your weekend?  This week Dave and I have been off work so we have been on day trips with the kids and generally just spent a lovely week doing fun family  stuff together 🙂 Alas, it’s back to work tomorrow – boo hoo, although it’s not so bad for me as I only work 3 mornings so I won’t complain too much!

The card I’m sharing today is the 3rd Christmas card that I have made so far this year!  Keep saying it but I really have got to pull my sock up here – must have at least another 100 or so to go!  Anyway this one was made with the lovely new ‘Chalkboard Christmas’ collection from Craftwork Cards.  I don’t think that this is available on their website yet as I think I’m right in saying that it is exclusive to Create and Craft for a while.  The card blanks (well, I say ‘blanks’ but they are all printed with various patterns) that compliment the collection are – or will be, available separately from the kit too.  I really like the chalkboard look that’s so popular now and this kit was great to work with.  I have to say that the other 2 Christmas cards that I have made have also been made with this kit. The poinsettia die is from Spellbinders as is the square die that I used to create the frame.  Add a touch of red Stickles to the poinsettia petals and job done!

Thank you for stopping by.  I hope you have a great week ahead – take care, Karen 🙂
