Creatalicious Challenge #4

Hi fellow bloggers - I have been a baaad blogger lately. Lack of time is my only excuse - that and having to compete with Club Pengiun! My kids are nuts about this game and trying to get anywhere near the computer while they're playing that is a non-starter!
I love this time of year - the Christmas Production rehearsals are now in full swing and I love to watch the children giving their all as they belt out their lines, and there's been more than a couple of discrete chuckles enjoyed by the staff already!! I cannot wait to go and see "Nativity" at the cinema - judging by the trailer, it's an absolute must for anyone involved in School Christmas Productions!!! LOL!!
Anyway, a little late I know, but finally I get to blog my Creatalicious Challenge card. The challenge this month is to make something for Christmas, use lots of glitter and snowflakes. My card is another easel card; very popular at the moment, and once you've made one, you can understand why that is, they're great fun and really impressive! This one was especially quick to make because all the elements you see (apart from the snowflake) are from the K&Co Swell Noel collection. I have absolutely loved K&Co's Christmas papers this year, but these chipboard pieces have been a very welcome addition. The only trouble is, they're double sided so it seems such a shame to glue them down to card - they would probably look better as free-standing figures on a 3D display!

Anyway, that's my lot for today - hope it won't be long before I have something to blog again!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week! :o) xx
