on the seventh day of Christmas

On the seventh day of Christmas I was looking at blogs from the northern hemisphere where they celebrate a winter white Christmas.  I decided to go for some delicate blues and a sprinkle of pearls and some shimmer to try and capture some of that experience - even though my Christmas is always hot and summery in Australia.

This is is a very simple care, lots of repeated stamped images and a few simple embellishments and that it.  If you had to make a lot of cards at Christmas this is definitely one you could mass produce very quickly.  You could also easily use some other colours and get a very different effect.

On a another note I can't believe Christmas is a little over a week away.  I don't know about you I'm not nearly ready.  I still have gifts to buy and things to bake.  I'm hoping I'll get a full day crafting in next weekend just in time to get everything done.  I'm also determined that next year it will be different.  I'll get it all done early ;-) A girl's gotta dream right!
