A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge 20

Here is my card for this weeks challenge over at "A Spoon Full of Sugar". This week we would like to see you use the colour scheme "Pink and Green". I have made a christmas card for my daughter Danni using this cute High Hopes "Holly Winter Fairy". Isn't she just gorgeous and there are two other gorgeous fairy stamps in the new collection too. She has tiny jingle bells on her shoes so I thought it would be fun to add a little bell to give the card some "Jingle".
We have a fabulous prize this week of an Alota "Bugs by the Fire" Stamp which has been very kindly donated by Bryony from Silly Monkey Crafts.


I would just like to thank my friend Justine for passing the above award to me a couple of days ago.

Also my friend Karin is starting a new challenge to help get you motivated to make your birthday and christmas cards. You can find details here.. She also has some great candy to offer to celebrate the launch of her new blog. I hope your challenge is a huge success Karin!


Also thought i'd let you know that Danni is still loving Nursery. I picked her up yesterday and her teacher said she had been up to her loads of times saying "I love Nursery"!

Hugs,

This is one pretty card, lovely papers and image and I just love the addition of the bell!
Glad Danni is enjoying nursery, see all that worrying!! Hollie had a fab 1st 2 weeks and has not gotten clingy when I leave her again, think it's down to her being accidently knocked over by 1 of the boys and it's knocked her confidence, ah well she enjoys it when I'm gone!
