Hi everyone, just can't believe it.  There are only 33 days left until Christmas!  Oh my goodness the time is just flying by.

On that note I have started giving some consideration to my Christmas card list for this year.  Each year I make all my cards so with November almost gone I thought I had better get started.  Today I would like to share with you my very first Christmas card for the year.

To create my card base if have used a Spellbinder die "Labels Eight", "Scallop cirles'" and "Standard Circles Small" available here and I have used an image from Saturated Canary called Nevaeh.  The exciting part is that there is a selection of stamps available currently for preorder through Bizzy Bec's and this gorgeous stamp is one of them.

Here she is:

I have also used a Memory Box die "Winterland Tree".  There is a great selection of dies available from Bec here for preorder and the sentitment is also from Bec, a freebie that is on the challenge blog here together with many others.

The circle sentiment works particulary well with Spellbinders circles and you can resize them to suit punches as well, very cool.

Remember also there is still time left to enter into this month's challenge "Time or Travel".

Thanks for dropping by, happy crafting.

Travelling Tilda

Hi everyone and welcome to a new challenge at Bizzy Becs.  This month the theme is

                            "Time or Travel" and is by Francy

There is a fabulous prize up for grabs this month with a new style embossing folder from Nellie Snellen called "Snowy Village 2" which embosses the whole scene.  Looks very cool.

My card that I would like to share with you all follows the theme of Travel and I have used two Magnolia Stamps - Travelling Tilda and Suitcase with signpost. These are older stamps and not currently available through the store but there are some awesome ones available for preorder here and will sell out very quickly, so don't miss out. They have been coloured using Copics.

I have also used Spellbinder Labels 8 available for preorder here and the card embellishment kit No 1 which is currently sold out but am very sure there will be some more coming very soon.

Dont forget to pop over to the Store Blog here and check out the rest of the teams gorgeous creations and then come back and share your card with us.  

Happy crafting
