WMS 1st Anniversary & New Release

(Congrats Claire)
Heya lovelies,

I made another card!! Yay!! After last week's extravaganza where I made 9 cards my mojo disappeared for a wee while this week. Claire posted the sketch for the challenge two days ago and I was keen to play but was absolutely stumped for ideas. Partly because I have two of her label stamps, two christmas sets and the earth angel (which I've already used in a WMS blog hop) and others which make great backgrounds yet I couldn't come up with anything. Then I thought, why don't I get a start on my Christmas cards for 2010!! Duh!! So I did. I played around a little bit with colours and layout.....and ended up with this little beauty.

I actually pulled out my heat gun and embossed, can you believe it??!! I haven't embossed since before Christmas (and funny that I was also making Christmas cards at that time too, lol).

Anyways, hope you like my little creation. I've used Claire's sketch for my layout and this week's Play Date Cafe Challenge for the colours.

Can't wait for the release tonight (Ireland time) Claire. It looks to be your bestest ever!! Check it out on her blog peeps.

Thanks for peeking.
