It's one of 'those' cards....


....the ones that I don't normally start thinking about until at least the end of November. Unfortunately when I saw the red & green in this week's Play Date Cafe challenge the first thought in my head was "Holly", and it refused to budge. Tying in the black & white was fairly straightforward, but the turquoise took a little longer.

Holly and snowflakes are courtesy of Cuttlebug.

  2. The Hollydays are knocking on my creative brain early this year. I am trying so hard to not flood my blogs with red, green, and sparkle.

  3. Haha Nigel, love your post title and of course your hollyday card too. You know Christmas never even entered my head when looking at the colour scheme, must have been the torquoise which threw me lol!
