Shy at first. Like getting and giving hugs, like my own company but like having 1 on 1 time with my friends. Not keen on big changes. Like to know what's happening!

Hope you're all organised and ready for the Big Day!!  It always make me laugh when I think about the amount of time, effort and money that is put into Christmas, which is just 1 day of the year!  You'd think the world is ending with the amount of food and drink people are buying!

Anyway, with just 1 day until Christmas, it's time for a new, and the last challenge of 2011 from Creations By Gill M.  This weeks challenge is to use blue and lilac in a Christmas card.

Here is my card:

To make this card I used a scallop edged card and made it into a twisted easel.  I covered the front and base of the card using two coloured backing papers.  The lilac 1 was from a Fizzy Moon Christmas paper pack and the other was from my own crafty stash.  I decorated the backing paper with adhesive gems and a silver bow which I made from Christmas ribbon.  I used a Stampendous stamp of a snowman couple with a blue pigment ink and coloured them in with various Promarkers.  I used Crystal Stickels to accent certain parts of the snowmen which gave a nice glittery effect to the image.  I inked the edges of the white card then matt and layered the stamped image onto blue card.  This was then attached to the front of the card and decorated with more adhesive gems.  I printed a sentiment to use and matt and layered it onto purple and silver card then attached it to the base of the card.

I've done quite a few card orders this year for Christmas, hope everyone likes them!  This one was for my friends Mum and Dad.

So, if you'd like to enter the challenge, then upload your creations on your blog, then go to Creations By Gill M Blog and fill in your Mr Linky details.  Remember too, that you have to be a follower of the CBGM Blog.

Can't wait to see what  you've made!  I'll be sure to leave you a comment, hope you will too!

Hope you have a wonderful Christmas!  Stay safe, eat well, don't drink too much and have fun!!!

Merry Christmas!!!!
