We have some lovely Christmas cards from the design team to inspire you. I hope you can get a moment to stop by their blogs for a wee visit. I promise  you will not be disappointed.

Eemeli at Eemeli's Home blog has made this delightful card. I think this wee bird has the look of a real scamp!

Liz Cavill of  Crafty Sunflower Blog has made this staircase fold card. I think this is such a fabulous fold!

Valerija at Moje Veselge blog has made this sweet Christmas wreath to help get us all in the Christmas spirit!.

Kathleen at Handmade by Kathleen blog has made this adorable bear card!

Sorry to you all, but I do not have a card to share this month. We have  a family member suffer a major health issue and is just released from hospital, and my eldest daughter had ankle surgery mid month and is recuperating with us while she is non weight bearing. It has been a hectic month!

This prize this month is a choice between this memory Box Small Blooming Poinsettia die

or this Wild Rose Studio  Girl with Christmas Bouquet stamp.

I love the inspiration from the DT this month Mo and sorry that you have a lot on your plate at the moment. Life has been getting in the way my end a bit too and did think I would just make it but sadly I ran out of time, but will definitely strive to do better next month. I hope both patients are recovering well. x
