Septembers Crafters Companion blog challenge card!!!

Hiya Everyone,

I have my September Crafters Companion Blog Challenge card to share with you today which is made with the fabulous popcorn stamps available from here. The theme this month is "Christmas" so it gives you all an excuse to dig out your christmas stash. It also made me realise that I need some new christmas stuff as I didn't buy anything last year as I'd only just had Tayla on the 1st December so I didn't make any Christmas cards apart from a few Joanna Sheen House Mouse samples. I even bought 9 LOTV christmas new releases in the November that I still haven't used....Oops!

The lovely traditional papers I have used are from a Papermania "Silent Night" A4 paperstack that I actually bought for making a card with for the Papermania category in the Cardmaker of the Year competition but I didn't as I ran out of time. Still, I'm glad I bought it as it contains some fab papers. I like it so much that I've just bought a new set! The poinsettia die cut is the mini version of the marainne creatables and I just love it. I have to stop myself from putting them on every christmas card I do! Lol

It is an 8x8 card as I like to vary the size I use although I do feel I have kinda got stuck in a "square card rut" so I'm going to try really hard to dig myself out of it!

If you have a christmas card you want to share with us over at the Crafters Companion monthly challenge blog then click here. There will be a £30 gift voucher to spend over at the Crafters Companion website which is randomly picked and you may be lucky enough to be picked as one of the top 3!!!

I hope to have a looking at all your festive creations soon!!!

Please check out my Christmassey monthly blog candy for September shortly.

Thanks for looking!!!
