DAY 7 - Christmas Inspiration

Good Morning Crafters,

Thankyou so much if you are still following on my daily mission to inspire you with some Christmas crafting.

This is a lovely stamp from our equally lovely Sheena Douglass.  It really makes you feel warm inside when you see this image all coloured.  I have used pro-markers to colour.  You will see that I have used a twisted easel design for the card and have used cinnamon sticks as the easel stopper.  Tie one or two sticks together with some organza ribbon.  You can easily buy cinnamon sticks from a good supermarket or health food shop. I have used Spellbinders Labels 1 as the base for the stamped image and a sentiment from the stamp set in the corner.  I have also used glossy accents on some of the image to highlight.
I really enjoyed making this card and it would be lovely to send it to any of your friends and family at Christmas.
Many thanks for popping by for todays inspiration.  
I have posted twice today as it is Saturday and Allsorts Challenge day.
Dont forget a comment will get you in with a chance to win some Blog Candy at the end of the 30 days.
Bye for now
Jo xx
