Hi and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

My isn't it Hot1 Hot!

Well as it's the 25th of the month and time for the 
over at Scrappymo's Blog.
As always it's anything goes as long as it's Christmas.
One Entry Per Person.
There is always a lovely prize on offer for the winner which Maureen funds herself.
The challenge runs from today till the end of the month.
So here is my DT card fro this month.

 This is a 8"x8" size card.
I decided to make a shaker design this time around.
I started with plain white card stock and embossed with a embossing folder from Crafters Companion.
I then sprayed it with Crafters Companion Spray and Sparkle Diamond Pearl to give my card stock a pearlied sheen, and it shows up the embossing lovely.
I left the front card stock plain, but put an embossed piece behind my shaker design.
White holly leaves I have had for many moons, the Merry Christmas and the white, and silver Reindeer are from the Works.
I love how the Merry Christmas just floats on the acetate.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
I really appreciate every visit and super comment made.
Lots of crafty love.   JENNY.

Hi Jenny
I love how the Merry Christmas floats on the acetate too. It is so beautiful the way it pops off the card.
Great idea to emboss the background of the aperture. I like that!

Got all my problems sorted in about 4 minutes and then breathed a huge sigh of relief! I was a bit panicked for a moment though when I sent you that email. Just wanted to explain...
