Izzy's Aussie Christmas ~ LDRS Guest Design

Morning Everyone!

Can't believe the time is just zooming by, we are into mid November already!
I have been busy making Christmas cards the last 2 weeks,
especially the ones that are going overseas.

A while back, I was asked to be one of the guest designers for November
at Little Darlings Rubber Stamps. Angie and Ann Marie, thanks so much for
 this generous offer!  How can I say no, their stamps are super adorable!
Angie has some new gorgeous releases recently, they just make your heart sing.

Today I am showcasing one of my GDT cards using

As usual, I water colored the image with Distress Ink pads.
I added some sparkly fluff on the Santa's hat and Izzy's boot trims.

The card measures about 6" in diameter.
I have used various Maja Design papers from the Vintage Winter,
It's Christmas Time, and A Gift for You collections.

Dies used are from QuikKutz, Go Kreate, Magnolia, and Memory Box.

The following embellishments are available at The Ribbon Girl Shop:
10mm red/cream square check ribbon, pink medium pom pom trim,
5mm ivory s/a pearl, 5mm red s/a crystals.

You can see more DT creations at LDRS Design Team Inspiration Blog.

Ooo . . . this is gorgeous! I never really know how to decorate circle cards, but you definitely don't have this problem!! Love the dies you have used for the flowers. Thanks for playing with CSAYL. Sorry I'm so late in commenting.

Oh yes, these images really are adorable. They just became available in one of the caraft stores here so I need to convince Santa I was a good girl this year. He he. ;)

I like the image you used on your card. So not typical for us, because we usually have lots of snow and it's veeeery cold outside in December, so that's definitely not time for bbq.

I need to make more Christmas cards too. I've already sent one out, but there are still several that are going overseas so I need to send them out by the end of this month. You know, just to be on the safe side, because the mail gets crazy slow in December.

Hugs! xx
