I'm Back!

OK, so I know I'm probably a candidate for the worst (or at least the most absent) blogger this week but, oh I have been a sickly specimen! However, there is light at the end of the tunnel..........I had a 'cough free' night of sleep..........woooooohoooooo! Anyhow, enough about that, today is Sunday and that means it's time for a new challenge over at the OSAAT challenge blog.

Our sponsors this week, all 3 of them, are as follows:

So there you go, lots of goodies up for grabs, no excuse not to enter! The theme this week is.........Christmas, traditional or modern, whichever you prefer. I thought I'd try something a little different again this week, so sometime during my battle against the germs, I came up with a couple of gift card holders............

So, I guess one is in traditional Christmas colours, the other more modern. Here's another view...........

I got to play with new Christmas digi papers this week from Panda Bear Designs which you will find shortly at the Stitchy Bear and I Did It Crafting Boutique. These papers are really pretty on their own, so I only embellished with various alpha stamps, ribbon, a sticker, glitter and stickles from my stash. These gift card holders fold pretty nicely too, so I think they'd look cool hung on the tree.

Well, that's it from me for now, but hopefully the creative juices will start to flow a little more freely from now on, so I should be back with another post fairly soon. Don't forget to head on over to the OSAAT blog to check out the beautiful creations from the rest of the DT.

Happy Halloween!
