Christmas at Sweet Stampin' ~ Baubles and Decorations

Hey there lovely crafty pals, it's time for our September challenge at Christmas at Sweet Stampin' and before you know it, Christmas will be here! Can you believe we've only 3 months until Christmas?! This month, we've the optional theme of 'Christmas Decorations'. I've been crazy busy with work and finding my feet with our new routines that I'm seriously craft deprived these past 3 weeks! So, I've not created this new for this challenge, but rather hunted through some older creations, that I've never got around to posting on the blog and found this cutie from way back when, which fits the theme perfectly! The bauble border and paper is perfect for this challenge. I love this Saturated Canary image too, must pull it out again for another colour, be interesting to see how far my colouring has come! I've coloured this with my Promarkers.

I made this card as part of a batch of Christmas cards, so the decorations were kept very minimal and the design quite CAS. Fun to look back at older makes and see how our crafting has changed.

I still really love this sentiment and so need to pull it out again for this Christmas. I bought it after seeing the lovely Nic from Coops Cluttered Corner use it on some Christmas makes and 'had to have it'! It's from Stampendous, but was many a moon ago I bought it, so not sure it's still available, but how fun is that sentiment?!

The rest of my teamies have created utterly fabulous designs for this theme, so be sure to stop by their blogs. You can click through on the link above where you'll find the line up. I hope you'll come and join our September Christmas crafting fun. We can't wait to see what you're inspired to do with this theme. I'm hoping to find a few minutes to get some crafting done this week, the last couple of weeks, have been a little crazy. But I'll be back with a new crafty adventure very soon. Until then, have a wonderful week and happy Christmas crafting! Hugs, Wends xoxo

What a cute Christmas Card Wends - and I can see the difference between your 'then' colouring and how you colour now! Do hope life calms down for you shortly.

Delightful Wendy. I'll have to do another Baubles and Bells card. Did one a few days ago - just before the challenge! Hope things settle into a routine soon. It's a big change.
