An Xtra Special Occasion and DT Call

Hello all. I hope you all had a lovely Christmas.It goes far too quickly! I am stuck in a bit of a creative rut at the moment having spent the last few months working on nothing but Christmas. I was lucky enough to get a melt pot and kit for Christmas so hopefully that will get the creative juices flowing!

Anyway on to the last challenge for 2011 at The Alphabet Challenge blog. We want to see cards for an Xtra Special occasion - special wedding anniversaries, births, weddings. My parents are celebrating their Ruby Wedding (40 years) next year so I've made a card for that occasion.  I made individual toppers with felt, buttons, beads and wire. I was lucky enough to get a Martha Stewart border punch for £7.99 instead of £18 in my local Hobbycraft sale so I used that to punch the edge of the card.

There is also a DT call at the blog  - open until Friday 13th January. So why not come and join us for 2012!

I'm taking my son to his first Pantomime today, so until later! Happy New Year!

Other challenges I am entering
Charisma Cardz - Anything Goes
Just for Fun - Anything Goes
