Oh dear... I'm late again...

Christmas and all the festivities are catching up with me,... I'm late posting my sample for the CCC Digi Creations last challenge of the year! - Rhinestones/Ribbons.  Where have all the days gone???????

Anyway our lovely sponsor for this fortnight is Bugaboo stamps. 

Now I've already shared some similar designs I did using the Tropical Santa from Bugaboo... but here is the one I used for my CCC Digi Creations sample


This used a freebie embossing folder (or at least part there of) and the digi image.  I printed the sentiment on the computer and added it with fish tail ends.  Added some gold Rhinestones.  I send this card off to my daughter in Perth.   Counting the hours till we fly out... 63 hours and counting... then it's about 13 hours travel time (we've got a 4 hr layover in Melbourne) ... so getting exciting.... Still have to pack!!!  Piles of clothes here there and everywhere - need to put them in a suitcase!  going from temps in the late teens to high 20's and beyond... up to 35C predicted for Christmas Day...  QUITE EXCITED if you hadn't already realised.

wishing all my readers a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  I'll be back around New Year as I'm hosting Die Cut Divas for January and will schedule a post... but otherwise I'm off line for around 2 weeks...

Love this hilarious card and thank you for the gorgeous Christmas card! It's even more beautiful in person than it was online.

Enjoy your vacation! We'll miss you around the web.
