This challenge closes Friday, 4th January 2013 and Winners will be announced Monday, 7th January 2013 - Remember we are working on Aussie Time.

I have been most disorganised this month in relation to my cardmaking - I confess I haven't even started my Christmas cards for this year - but I am hoping to make headway this week (hubby goes back to work and I can get down to some serious crafting ;-))

Now for my DT cards - I confess, these are not new cards - they are put forward as inspiration for not using stamps on Christmas Cards - I wish to highlight punches and die-cuts this month ;-)
Square Red cardstock as a base, layered with Gold Shimmer cardstock cut out with Cuttlebug and Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Pendant, holly leaves punched out from two different shades of green, snowflakes punched out from white pearl paper and glued in a circle, clear and red gemstones added for some 'bling', gold peel-off stickers added to corners. 

This is not my design, I was inspired by
 Hunnybunny cards  many years ago ;-)

All items used in this card, except the punches, are from BlueEdge Crafts.

Please visit the UnstampaBelles blog and see last month's entries and check out the winner.
There are some amazing entries and I know I say it every month, but it really is getting very hard for the DT to pick a favourite!

Thank you for visiting my blog today - I hope you have a good day.
Remember, any day doing something you love makes it a good day ;-)

Doing what you like is freedom. Liking what you do is happiness.


  1. Great wreath. I love all that bling.

  2. Love the holly punches. Very effective card with the bold colours.
