A Slimline Christmas

 Hello Friends

I have a quick card to share with you today that I created the other day when coming up with ideas for an upcoming Tutti Designs showcase on the UK's Hochanda TV show.  That's coming up the end of October and I'll be sharing more about that at as we get closer to that time.

Here's what I'm talking about . . .

I've created a holiday slimline card using a scrap of Christmas designer paper, a snowflake embossing folder, Tutti Designs Cross Stitched Nesting Circles and a holiday die sentiment.

As I said, this was kind of a prototype for the card I ended up making for the Hochanda show and although not my 'best' work, it's still a cute card and wanted to share it with you.

After I was all done I though the circles would look more like an ornament if it had the hanger top on it so I grabbed a gold marker and just hand drew (obviously I'm NOT artistic lol) them on.

Challenges to share in:

The Hollyl & Ivy Christmas Challenge #80 - AG
Shopping our Stash #430 - Slimline
Die Cut Diva's Challenge - All Kinds of Holidays
Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #291 - AG

Hope you're having a pleasant day!
The temperatures have certainly cooled off around here ... Welcome Fall!
