Christmas Is Coming

Good morning all,
Christmas certainly is coming at an alarming rate.
Every year I swear I will be more organised and every year it's always a last minute rush!

This week over at The PaperShelter we have a brand new challenge

As always we have an amazingly generous prize from

Veronica and Pedro

Challenge prize badge

The theme as the title suggests is

'Christmas Is Coming!'

This week I have used one of the pre- coloured images to create a 'chocolate card' for our gorgeous grandson to give to his teacher at Christmas. I made one earlier this year but of course he needs more than one!

The image is 'Are You Ready My Friend?' and comes in both pre coloured and line art so you can colour it yourself.

and the inside .........

Ryan is thrilled with it - I hope his teacher is!
The papers are from two digital kits by Stampin Mindy called
Cold hearted and Country Christmas available here 
 The vines are cut using Tonic dies which cut through most things like butter.
The sentiment is a digi stamp from Pink Gem Designs.
The flowers are from Wild Orchid crafts and the ribbon is from my stash.

I do hope you enjoy the challenge.
Have a great day
