Christmas at In The Pink


Hi Lovely Blogging Friends....

Well another two weeks have gone by - and here I am with my card for our Christmas challenge In The Pink!  I'm sure the time is going by faster now I'm getting older...  hmmmm did I say older?????  nahhh.. I'm still a child at heart!!

I chose to use a gorgeous rubber stamp from CC Designs - Pollycraft Skater - one of three Christmas CC Designs I bought last month.  Isn't she just sooooo cute??

Pop over to In The Pink to see what the wonderful Pink Ladies came up with and to join in our challenge - it's running for four weeks this time so we get a little break over Christmas - so there's plenty of time to enter!

Hope you're all OK and all staying warm and dry in this nasty weather...  while I'm writing this, it's dark, there's a gale force wind blowing, and it's pouring down with horizontal rain!!  So much for putting all the lovely Christmas lights outside...

Big hugs to all and Happy Crafting...
