Untraditional Christmas

Well I made my first Jacob's ladder and must admit it was very trying at times but I was determined that it would not get the better of me. I was going to do this one with my nieces and nephews at our card making day at half term but think I need to get the hang of it more myself first !! I must admit though once it was made I have had lots of fun playing with it. I am going to enter this into the Crafters Companion Untraditional Christmas card challenge no 5 as it is not the normal kind of card you would send for the festive season.
Hope you like it ?

Alternative Christmas

Well sorry I have not been on my blog for a while but not been too well and lots going on. But I have now done my card for Crafters Companion challenge No 5 and am also going to enter it into the other challenges listed below. The CC is an alternative Christmas and also a sketch so I have combined both. I used the Popcorn the Bear Cosy and Warm CD for the backing paper and the CC pearlesent coloured card for the base, I love this  card it is great for all card making.
