Merry Christmas @ Diva's

Ho Ho Ho lovely bloggers - not long to go now!
Hope you have all finished your Christmas shopping and wrapping and that everyone is getting in the Christmas spirit!

It's time for a brand new challenge at


and nice and easy its

Merry Christmas

Lol bet you've all got last minute cards to make! I know I have!!
Though I did make this one a while ago before my holidays
This is the beautiful Candy Canes rubber stamp from Saturated Canary. I bought this way back in October, so I think that's good for me to use it in the same year!
The papers are all a bit mixed as are the flowers but I do remember that I painted a star pin pink to match and the lovely Jill sent me those fabby little swirly things.

This challenge is going to run for 3 weeks to get over the Christmas holiday, head over to the main challenge blog for all the details about this and to check out the TWO fabulous sponsors who are covering the extended challenge. While you're there a look what my gorgeous Diva teammies have created for your inspiration.

If I haven't said this yet - Merry Christmas to everyone out there!

Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx
