Christmas post

Hello lovely people,

Another week is flying's Wednesday again (happy hump day to those that work!) and that means it's Creative Inspirations challenge time and this week we have the theme...

With the option of a sketch; you can use any of the ones from the Creative Inspirations sketch page or this lovely new one;

We are sponsored this week by All Dressed Up with a prize of 2 digi's of the winners choice

I chose to use the sketch above but rotated it 180 degrees and added the sentiment tag on some twine.
These are some of my new papers from the Hobbycrafts show and they are GORGEOUS!
