Christmas Kickstart Challenge

Its getting on for a year since I lost my lovely hubby and I have been lacking in mojo for a few weeks now, but after a refreshing and restorative weekend away in Devon with old friends I felt like making some cards again.

This card is for the current challenge at the Christmas Kickstart blog "Gnome for Christmas" . I dug out this older Simon Says Li'l Gnome die and decided to go with silver and pink for a change, I also wanted to make a shaped card.  The background is made using a Pink Fresh Studio hot foil plate and die. I then added my gnome , the sentiment is also hot foiled. 

Another card to add to my Christmas stash and its also got me crafting again!

I was also asked by my daughter to make a first birthday card for her friends baby daughter , I have used this design before, it is based on a card I saw on Pinterest a while back.  All the stamps are from Heffy Doodle and I cut the 1 shape and the name using my Silhouette machine.

Its a bank holiday weekend in the Uk and I am hoping for some better weather.  Have a great week.
