CHNC Extra September

Good morning all. Hope you're enjoying the weekend whatever your plans.

Well yesterday didn't go quite according to plan!! Several phone calls from the intrepid traveller in the early hours resulted in me having to pay to change their flights home from Tuesday to yesterday...by the time I'd done it was lunch time!! I then had an unscheduled trip to the airport at teatime which took up another 2 hours of my day!!! Grrr kids, who'd have em!!

I'm off out today to meet my brother and nephew for lunch, as I haven't seen them since the wedding it will be lovely to catch up again.

I was very lucky to be asked by Hazel to guest design this month over at CHNC Extra.  This is a monthly challenge where anything Christmas goes.

I've used Christmas SB Candycane from Bugaboo the challenge sponsor for my card. Coloured with promarkers, die cut and mounted onto a fancy die cut mat. Dies are all Spellbinders. Backing paper and bow are from DoCrafts. Tag, lace and gems are from my stash.

Please feel free to copy to your sidebar

I do hope you will come and join us this month....remember "Anything Christmas Goes".
