I have to say this is quite surreal. I am sitting on the deck typing this overlooking a beautiful pale sand beach watching a few people shelling and others dog walking. Back home in the UK they have had their first frost.
This card, another Christmas one, uses a recent release from Mark's Finest Papers. I die cut the circle and prepared the other pieces to bring with me. Other cards made while we are here could have a few squares or rectangles and they might not be perfect as I only have a ruler and knife! The card is for Challenge 9 and it is another easy one - use your favourite sketch so why not join in.
Hope everyone had a great weekend especially those celebrating Thanksgiving.

This month's New Stamp Set Releases are
A Trip to Lancaster
What a Fox
This card was made for my Brother in Law who turned 50 on Sunday. He has always pretended to be much younger but with a big party on Saturday he could pretend no more. The trip to Lancaster set with the great sentiment about age was my choice. I have used SC359 sketch and my colour choices are from challenge CC348.
Thanks for looking

Marks Finest Papers hop. However I can share my card with you that uses the lovely little Nuthatch. I have combined it with some Thansgiving paper and the sketch SC358 and mailed it out Saturday.

this week's Jugs challenge) on this card and one other which I won't even bother to post and I think I must be doing something a bit wrong as my ghosts are quite faint! I saved this card with the white embossed snowflakes.

The WMSC72 sketch challenge combined with the OCC challenge to make a masculine card using non standard masculine colours is how I came up with this card. I have used 2 stamp sets from Waltzingmouse and one image from Las Vegas stamps. I was thinking saloon doors and that is why I put the show girl in too. The colours are more "purpley" rather than blue and the green is more lime but the camera hasn't coped too well and my photo editing skills cannot make it right!
