Christmas Wishes

 This comes with very best wishes to all my blog friends and followers and I would like to say thank you very much for all your visits through the year and for the lovely comments - all very much appreciated. It has certainly been a very strange year - here's hoping that 2021 will see a turn-around so that there are happier and more settled times times ahead for everyone.  In the meantime stay safe.

Playground Challenge #393

 This is the final challenge for the year over in the Playground and there are some extra goodies to be won - best pop over for a visit and read the precise details for taking part if you are interested.  The lovely Di works so hard on our behalf to keep this challenge running and on 1 January it will be the nine years anniversary.  Goodness me that's a whole lot of posts and prizes if you think about it so well done Di, the regular playmates appreciate what you do for us.  Congratulations!!

Apart from the base card everything on this card was taken from various snippets boxes.  I started with the stamped image onto a snippet of white, coloured with pencils and then cut into an oval. I then selected some pieces of card and patterned paper which I thought toned together nicely and set about cutting banners.  A sentiment stamped onto another scrap of white with a tiny punched flower added and there it is - my snippets card for this challenge.
