Christmas but not as we know it....

Morning folks...the cubbyhole's been in Christmas mode for a while...mostly DT "can't share just yet" makes all using traditional Christmas colours...Red/Green...Blue/Gold etc but I thought I
would have a little fun...dig out the Distress Inks...some of Tim's Limited Edition Seasonal Colours...ones that you probably wouldn't associate with Christmas...
Tumbled Glass...Shaded Lilac...Picked Raspberry...
that bow needs to go...it's just not right...
 this is my favourite...clean and simple and easy to mass produce for your Christmas list...
Picked Raspberry...Shaded Lilac...Evergreen Bough


Can't believe that my Olympic viewing is almost at an end...what a fantastic Saturday night...well done to Mo and Tom...we are all so proud of you...soon there will be nothing to distract me from work stuff...no more excuses for sitting around on the sofa with a cuppa and cake...it's back to knuckling down to the crafty list again.
See you all tomorrow to announce the winner of the Mini Makes Kit
Hugs Kath xxx

Edited to add: for those who e-mailed asking how I created that perfect circle....easy peasy it's a stamp from Hero Arts CL 519 - Many Dots

  10. The circle one is brilliantly effective - wintery enough but not OTT - adaptable for the "oh no, forgot that person will have to make a New Year card" category too

  21. Kath,I bet you're enjoying trying out some of the new stamps. I love the nontraditional colors you've used. Can you tell me how you inked the perfect circle behind the trees ? Is there a stamp or do you ink up an acrylic circle "
