Day 1 - Twelve Days of Christmas Cards Challenge

Hi everyone! I am so excited! Today is the first day of my 12 Days of Christmas Cards challenge. That's right - you are going to be delighted with 12 straight days of Christmas cards! Not only that, but I have been joined by 12 of my friends from around blogland who are helping inspire you and encourage you to get those Christmas cards done :)

You can enter as many times as you like! There are prizes up for grabs too! The linky tool will be open until 12pm on the 17th of December (AEST)

Here is the card that I am sharing with you today -

I have used my new stamps from Happy Little Stampers called Christmas Joy. I LOVE Christmas. Sometimes it is a very quiet affair due to not being able to catch up with my family scattered across the country BUT I always make the most of it - decorations, food, the works.

I used a border die to create interest and add the pop of red. I coloured my holly leaves and berries with sharpie markers then used a white gel pen to give them some highlights.

I can't wait to introduce the friend that is joining me for Day 1 -

Shery Russ from STAMPlorations

Shery and I have a long history together. I joined her Design Team when her company was very new and I loved every moment of it. Shery and I are always in contact even though we are busy with our stamp companies and life. It's an awesome friendship. 

Wow, this is one festive Christmas Card!!!! I love the presents and the die cut Merry Christmas!!

I have wonderful sponsors joining us!

Winners will be drawn at random :)

Thank you Shery for helping out with the inspiration today.
