HLS Christmas Challenge May "Gift"

Good evening all.

Progress is being made on the house - my craft room is finished and I'm beginning to move stuff up there. I am regretting being on the third floor though having to carry everything up two flights of stairs!! Three bedrooms now have some paint on them too so I'm beginning to see an end result finally.

Trying to keep up with my DT commitments here amongst the chaos! Today it's time for the team to showcase their wares for the May Christmas challenge over at HLS, the theme this month is "Gift".

A very quick and simple card from me using leftovers which were lying on my desk, a little topper from my stash and a few gems.
Sentiment is from HLS Mixed Christmas Sentiments, die is from Memory Box.


  1. It might have been quick Carol but it's looks fabulous, such a cute little bear and great background.
    I'm so pleased you are getting to the end of your house renovations, I hope you will share some photographs when it is all finished.

  2. This is very pretty Carol and I love the cute bear against that pretty blue background with the MB snowflakes and hope you get settled in your new craft room soon. I've really enjoyed being GD this month too. x

  3. Hi Carol, fabulous card for all it's quickness, love the cute little bear with is prezzy and the wonderful snowflake and colours.
    Pleased to hear tha your home is coming along, but you've got your priories right.... craftroom first, mind I don't know about the three flights of stairs, takes me all my time to do one, take care, Kate x
