One month on.......

and 11 more to go!! Of course it's Christmas I'm talking about! Have decided to try and do as many cards as possible during the year (well - that means before May cos once May arrives I only just have time to BREATHE never mind anything else....).

And I really did feel bad about not supporting Mo last year and her 'Rudolph Day' challenges so over the next couple of months am going to try my best!

Did a couple similar last year so as Mr Mojo has gone AWOL this morning, the only thing I could come up with was the same kind of design.

There is also a sketch here at Sunday Stamps so this is my interpretation and a similar one here at Sketch Saturday which I tuned upside down!

This was quick and easy and now I've said that it doesn't give me an excuse not to make more Christmas ones during the year does it?

A die, some spotty cardstock, a sentiment stamp and some glamour dust - what could be easier???

Other Challenges -
AAA - Winter Wonderland
Eceltic Ellapu - Use a die
CCC - Anything Christmas

Have a great day and thanks for looking! x

Well it's a winning concept kind of design, so why not make replicates! I hardly or never use non traditional colors myself, but this looks fresh and modern!

I'm still here - in fact I can see my mugshot on your follower list! I'd not realised, but I've lost some too.

cotnob said...

Such a pretty card Viv, a lovely die cut landscape and pretty pinks.
No, I haven't deserted you, I'm just rather busy with magazine commissions at the moment. We have all lost followers - there is a post on my blog about it here - http://craftingwithcotnob.blogspot.co.uk/2016/01/google-friend-connect.html

Pretty card and perfect for a bit of batch card making

MaryH said...

It's lovely, and I like the unexpected pink skyline with this wonderful die. Mr. Blogger isn't helping Mr. MoJo at all, with the shenanigans going on with the followers. Good to see you at Rudy Day. TFS & Hugs

pinky said...

Its a lovely design Viv and well worth repeating. I wish I could make Christmas cards at this time of year, would be so helpful!!

Mrs A. said...

No your all right I can see me in your followers icons and your coming up on my dash board my end. All a bit worrying as I lost 5 peeps overnight!! I was struggling to get to the next break point of followers for a giveaway and now taken loads of steps backwards. All so frustrsting.
I love the pink on this card. hugs Mrs A.

Doreen said...

This is gorgeous Viv....I too have lost 24 of my followers,it is something to do with blogger.xxx

Greta said...

I love how you used the die! I've gotta get one like that!

Di said...

LOVE this card Viv! Very CAS and my colours too. Just checked and yup, I'd disappeared from your followers. I've always used my Google account so am really puzzled. Have signed up again to follow you - and the process was just a tad quicker and easier than when you initially add yourself as a follower - which makes me feel that Blogger botched summick up!

Hugs
