Christmas In August...

Good morning everyone.

I hope you are all well.

Today I have a Christmas card to share....

I thought it was about time to make a start. I normally have the majority of my Christmas cards under wraps by now but I think I have managed about 4 or 5 which I have to say I'm not too impressed with.....I'm not very organised this year but I'm putting it down to stepping down from several Christmas DT posts and the fact Mr Mojo seems to have been absent for much of the year.

Anyway here goes....I'm on a mission now and thought I'd start with something very simple.




When I saw this die I just had to have it. 

It is a Memory Box Grand Merry Christmas Script Die and I just love it. My card is very simple only using red and white card, silver mirri card, some white glitter card and pearls for the snowflakes and a small flat backed pearl medallion from The Hobby House for the centre of the larger snowflake.

And there you go....Job Done!

I think I'll be making a few more cards like this as I quite like the simplicity and the fact it didn't take too long to complete....which is good in my world at the moment!!!!
