Christmas is Coming!

Scary, but true. Have I started making Christmas cards? NO!!! How is it that Christmas sneaks up like this?
I have a market stall at my daughter's Carols by Candelight at the end of the month and I seriously need a lot of cards. And the more I make, the more I keep selling before the day. I guess it's a good thing - must mean that people like them...

Here is my first Christmas card I've made. I made this one on Saturday at our Craft day get-together. The image is a Phindy's image and I'm entering into their challenge :

Challenge #30 - Christmas is Coming!

Isn't this the cutest little puppy? I have to make one for my sister - she recently got a puppy and found one of her (quite pricey) shoes that had been used as a chew toy.
I kept this card quite "simple" - just lots of layering of papers, and didn't want to overdo it with lots of embellishments, so finally settled on a red ribbon with white dots and a simple bow. Works for me :)

Hope to share more soon

Love Mel
