Merry Christmas!

And to wish you all a very happy Christmas, I'm sharing with you the card I made for my husband Mark. As you may know, he is passionate about growing chillies, so much so that the fairy lights on our Christmas tree are chilli shaped! So I decided to make him a chilli-themed Christmas card. I searched high and low for a chilli rubber stamp, but couldn't find one that is currently available in the UK. My search for a suitable digi was almost as fruitless - I found a few, but nothing that spoke to me, so in the end I decided to draw and colour my own.

As I couldn't rely on myself to draw several identical ones, I scanned the one I'd drawn and pasted it several times over on to one page, along with a suitable greeting, then cut out the images and greeting to make the card.

I'm sharing this with CAS on Sunday challenge #49 - Christmas

Ahhhh how lovely - there is nothing more satisfying than making or receiving a personalised card! That is why we enjoy making them so much!! Merry Christmas Jane to you and your family! XXX
