Red and Green...

Well Christmas is sneaking upon us. I seem to have been surrounded by Christmas bits and bobs on my craft table since July when I had my first of many Christmas deadlines to meet, so maybe subconsciously I've been doing anything but wanting to get all Christmas-crafty for myself since then.

Recently I thought 'right, lets get all traditional and get lots of red and green out' (as a lot of my other ideas had gone against the grain this year).

So...did I get underway with my Christmas cards?

Am I busy doing my Noddy Holder impression and shouting IIIIIITTT'S CHRIIIIIISTMAAAAAAS!!!!!!!

Nope....lol

IT'S MORE STAMPOTIQUE ORIGINALS GIRLS!!

AND NOTHING TO DO WITH CHRISTMAS!! lol :0) :0)

HeeHee...





Still....plenty of time for Christmas cards....

AGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Stampotique Originals stamps are available from Carol at Stampotique in the States or Moira at Happy Daze here in the UK.

Shannon said...

So cute!! That gives me a good idea for Christmas Cards, thank you. I always use the tradional stamps that are made just for Christmas cards and Christmas projects. But I don't ever think to use other stamps that aren't traditionally made for Christmas for my Christmas cards. I'm going to try that. Thanks for the idea.
