Festive 48 - Week 48!!!!!!!!!!!!

Set off the fireworks! Release the doves!  It's week 48 and my final card for my Festive 48!

Just to recap, I have challenged myself to make a Christmas card every week , and post it here (to make sure I do it!) . If I do this, by the beginning of December I will have 48 Christmas cards. I have also issued an invitation to anyone who would like to join me by linking up ONE card each week. 

I'm really proud to say that I have never cheated even once - every card has been made in the week posted. Imagine if I had invested this level of commitment and energy into something like ....a diet ! ...or world peace!  But no, all I have is a big box of Christmas cards and a sense of satisfaction that I have no last minute panic. 

This week's card is made from two stamps from Clearly Besotted, stamped on kraft and coloured with Promarkers. The I added a doodled frame and some gems. 

This link up is always 'Any Christmas Card Goes'. 

Thank you to everyone who's joined me so far. I love seeing your cards. 

I'd like to enter:

Congrats on your achievement! There aren't many New Years resolutions that are being followed through, and at the beginning of the year I thought this was one really ambitious goal, but you did it!
I love kraft, I always make sure I have plenty in my stash as I use it quite often. It looks so beautiful with white, and I like that you kept the panel of kraft small for lots of white to be seen. Nice doodling too!
