Week 237 - Snowflakes

Good Saturday Morning Everyone,

No doubt this post finds you all really busy and getting ready for everything to do with Christmas. A question for you - why is it that the women of the house always have so much to do and organise at this time of year!!!!  it is a funtime though but it is getting scarily close now so I really must get down to some serious sorting out!
We have had 2 Christmas get togethers at Let's Create this week - on Wednesday evening and all day yesterday and I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone that came along.  We had such a lovely time on both occasions, a good laugh, a little mulled wine and a fabulous spread of all the naughty food that we are allowed to eat at this time of year! We also played a few daft games and had a Christmas quiz!  It is our way of finishing off another fabulous year at the shop and having all of our friends and customers popping in to celebrate.
Today is the start of a new Challenge and it is our lovely Helene's turn to host this week and she has chosen .......................................
for the title and I think that the following card is quite fitting what do you think?
This is a gorgeous image from the Hobby House - I really love working with their products.
The inner circular die is from the Tattered Lace range and is the Floral Interlocking Die set.
The inner plain circle in the middle is a Spellbinder and the outer circle is also a Spellbinder from the Grand Circle Set.
The snowflake die is a Cheery Lynn and I really like it for its delicate appearance. These were cut in Centura Pearl card.
The organza ribbon and the string with a gem finishes the card off.
I hope that you like the design and get some inspiration from it to have a go at the Challenge at Allsorts.  Pop over to the Challenge blog to have a look at all of the other Design team ideas.
Thankyou, as always, for popping by and please leave a comment - I love to receive them.
Enjoy a lovely weekend and if you do go Christmas shopping don't spend too much!!!!
Bye for now
