Another one for the Christmas Box!

Am surprising myself as I have managed to make a couple of Christmas cards - what's the betting though that I still won't have enough by the time December comes?!

Anyway, it's 25th of the month so that's Rudolph Day at Scrappy Mo's.
Here's mine -

I coveted this Penny Black stamp for a long time and finally got my grubby mitts on it just before Christmas!
Cream base card, gold mirri mat and some gold embossing powder! Job done - so made a couple for the box.
The sentiment stamp is an old wooden one I have had for a while. My stamping wasn't as sharp as it could have been with the sentiment.. there's a few tiny flicks of gold where they shouldn't be! LOL

Other challenges -
CCC- Anything Goes
ABC- D is for Don't Overdo It

I am off to Coventry tomorrow until Sunday, so wishing you all a great weekend and catch up with you soon. x
