Sugar Creek Hollow......

Afternoon peeps hope you have all got your advent calendars ready to start opening on Sunday, I can't make my mind up whether to put the Christmas tree up o Sunday or wait till the following week, I'm a little worried this year as Zachary is in to everything and I've got a feeling that the tree is going to come under attack this Christmas, he is such a sweet little terror but I spend most of my time following him around saying NOooooooo.
Today sees the start of a new challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow, this fortnight the theme is ....Vintage Christmas.
I have used an image from Ooh La La Creations and the papers are from First Edition, I did say I wasn't going to buy anymore Christmas paper pads but I fell in love with this one, so it fell in my basket when I was at the NECAdded Frantage to the edges of the image.

Stunning card Danielle! I love the colors and the image is certainly a winner. I think that Frantage is just amazing and will have to make sure some gets into the next overseas shopping cart I fill!

Such a lovely image and I love the beautiful card you made with it.
I know what you mean about the tree I have seven granchildren now and most years there has been an accident or two with things being pulled of the tree, but I do love to see their faces when they first see it up xx
