Festive 48 - Week 23

Well, fellow crafters, you will be proud to hear that the hot weather we currently have in the UK  has not deterred me from my Christmas card-making goal!

Here is a partridge in a pear tree. The partridge is a digistamp by The Alley Way. I diecut the arch, coloured it with distress ink and gold embossed with a chickenwire stamp.  The spiral pear is a diecut and the music background is a mask.

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. 

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

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