It's Pauline's turn to host the challenge at Allsorts this week. She's chosen Christmas in July as the theme.

I used snippets of mirri card for all the die cuts. I used a spellbinder bauble set and a JND corner die set. The nativity scene is part of a larger die by CC which I cut to fit the bauble.

This week we have two fabulous prizes for our winners - firstly a £15 store voucher from Pearlywinks
Pearlywinks craft supplies is a family run business based in Manchester, the business was established in 2018 by Simon and Donna who have been avid crafters for at least 20 years following on in family footsteps. The business has grown from less than 10 ink sprays to over 100 different ink products, Texture Paste, Stamps, Stencils and a selection of mediums. All of our inky products are made in house and we try to have our products made by other UK based companies. We have been featuring on the craft channel Hochanda on a monthly basis since the company began. 

Secondly we have this lovely Christmassy Sizzix die.

I'm popping over to the Snippets Playground with this card where the theme for two challenges is Christmas snippets.

We just had a wonderful week away in North Yorkshire. A trip to Thirsk saw these hanging baskets outside some of the shops with replicated items from the shop. I only took a few but there were many more all so ingenious. 

Our cottage was just the other side of the Church. It's a wonderful location and the second year in a row we've stayed there.

It looks like such a peaceful location Lynn, not dissimilar to here in the Fens, except we have no hills!

An elegant Christmas card with the baubles and pretty corners.
