Carol singing

Hello lovely people,

Here we are halfway through the week again so of course it's Creative Inspirations challenge time and this week we have the theme...


We are sponsored by Crafts U Love with a £10 voucher

I took the speedy option this week with a pre-coloured art pad image but I really love these cute carol singing critters and it was an absolute no-brainer to team it with the music paper.
I'm doing really well with keeping my Christmas cards flatter this year!

I couldn't resist adding a little sparkle to the's mandatory for Christmas cards don't you know?!

to be added


  1. Hi Kat! I have been so inspired by your hand stitching, I did a card with it this week...I have a whole new appreciation for your beautiful creations. It was fun, but time consuming. It was a card for my son and I'm not sure he will appreciate it. As usual, this is a beautiful card, and yes Christmas cards must have a little sparkle!

  2. Gorgeous Kat! The sparkle is just right and the papers are perfect! Gorgeous image and card design hunny. Hugs, Wends x

  3. Great papers! I haven't bought any this year and must go with leftovers and old papers. But that's ok - love a challenge! :)
    And YES - sparkle is a christmas must have - weather on a card, clothes on your hair. :)
    Have an awesome day, Kat!

  4. A lovely card and cute LOTV image. Yes, sparkle is a 'must have' on Christmas cards!

  11. Kat, this is beautiful - I never remember to use Art Pad images and Heavens to Betsy I probably have enough of them! I may have said (so excuse me if I am repeating myself)! but I love, love, love Christmas cards with traditional themes and colours - I adore your red combination and the papers are gorgeous. You just make eery card so perfect Kat with your great eye for detail - time to get the Art Pads dusted off!

  12. This is a fabby artpad image Kat... and you've used it to perfection. You created a layout in your own unique wonderful style - with perfect papers - and of course, that wonderful touch of sparkle! Love it!

    Big hugs
