June Rudolph Days Challenge

Goodness!  I haven't blogged for ages and now two on the same day!




Both backgrounds are Distress Inks with water and Glimmer Mist for some sparkle.  The Christmas trees are made with a die that came free with a magazine and the sentiment is a clear stamp by Inkydoodles. I added a pearl to the centre of each star.  These are very simple but I like how they turned out.

I would like to enter the following challenges:-

June Rudolph Days Challenge - Anything goes as long as its Christmas!
Craft Barn Weekly Challenge - Stars and/or stripes - My trees have stars on the top!

Please pop over to both of these Challenge Blogs - they are fabulous!

Thank you for visiting - I really look forward to your visits and comments!  Take care.  Christine xxx

Beautiful cards! I used the same die, but in a very different way, which just shows how useful it is. One of the best magazine freebies ever. I love your backgrounds too

How organised are you! Inspired decision to have a star on your tree for the CB challenge. That's a great die.

These are really fun cards. The backgrounds have such a wintery feel to them.

I wish I could be so organised. A lovely freebie die and your background sets the die cut off beautifully.

They turned out beautifully. The top background looks like a snowy sky and the lower one a sunset. Lovely!
