Thursday Thoughts

How is your Christmas stash of cards coming along? Well mine just got a little boost with this card that I'm entering into CAS Colours & Sketches Double Challenge and CASology's Cue Card Challenge too.

Here's my card:

And of course at this time of year there are many many kinds of lists being drawn up, but perhaps making it onto Santa's nice list is the key one in many children's thoughts - and mine too!

It's always difficult to match retired colours and the ones listed at CC&S date back to before I had discovered Stampin Up - is that possible? But I've done my best!

Stamps: Clearly Besotted, Little Elves
Ink: Memmento, tuxedo black
Pens: Promarkers, sandstone, denim blue; Copic, R24
Washi from my stash

Huge thanks for dropping by today, it's been such fun having you visit. Come back again soon, but in the meantime keep crafting!
