This is my half way creation today inspired by Linda's great Christmas tag. For those of you who are new to Linda's challenge you can read all the rules of it here. In a nutshell you use her weekly tag for inspiration and you can create anything crafty and as long as all 12 projects are completed by 22 Dec. You also have a chance to win one of her generous prizes. I was lucky enough to win $25 dollars last year to spend in her wonderful on line boutique which sponsors the challenge. Do have a look here at her shop, her stock is enormous and her prices really keen.
I choose to use the challenge to create 12 special Christmas cards.
This is her #6 tag here
I was inspired by the tree stamp, the holly leaves and that cute wooden snowflake on her tag. I wanted to use a more whimsical tree stamp, this one by Lavinia. I was also inspired to use some browns and green in my colour scheme too but mine are different shades to Linda's. I also love using corrugated packaging so that had to feature too on my card.
It gave a nice subtle holly background.
I added some Cheery Lynn die cut holly leaves and icicles. A piece of festive ribbon and lots of sparkle from my stickles.

I nearly didn't post this today as I have just been so shocked by the atrocities in Paris.
But then I thought that we must show that we are not cowered by hatred. We must all stand up for a free world and one which is not ruled by those who want to create havoc and fear.
May those innocent people, enjoying a Friday night out, rest in peace.
May their loved ones find support and love at this horrific time for them.
I am still reeling at the shock of this. So many people, mostly young carefree adults, slaughtered in cold blood and many more critically wounded......just horrific. I am saddened to my core.
Clasp your loved ones close and tell them that you love them. Life can be so short.
Bye for now,
