all together now fa la la la la la la la la - Lili of the Valley challenge 75 + CES Challenge-Vintage Christmas + Creative Inspirations challenge 88

Good morning all...I bet you counted the la la la's to see if they were right...did you? lol...don't you just love Christmas, the colours, smells, food, just everything, my Sister so hates Christmas its unbelievable how much she hates it and she hates everything about it, I really do expect her to say bah humbug...my card for today is using these fabulously sweet carolers from Lili of the Valley (that's why you had to put up with my singing I'm afraid) how cute are they and they look so happy too, I coloured them with Distress inks and teamed then up with these lush Kaisercraft papers, do you get the feeling Im addicted to Kaisercraft papers anyone...hhhhhmmmm me too...I finished with some lush elasticated Prima lace and a stunning ribbon at got at the NEC I wish I had got more of this...I used the gorgeous sketch by Bev over at the Lili of the Valley challenge and I'm also entering it for the CES Vintage Christmas and Creative Inspiration colour combo challenges too...I will be back a little later with my Bunny Zoe's blog hop winner and I have something yummy for you tomorrow too...have a brilliant day everyone...speak later

Wonderful card, Mina - I love everything about it! I think we must have similar taste in images becasue I bought that stamp at the show in Harrogate but it still remains uninked! So many stamps - so little time!!

Like you I love Christmas. Any time of year when people think about others instead of themselves can't be bad can it? We have 14 inches of snow here so I think it might last till Christmas Lol.
