A Krafty Christmas

As planned, we took the day off today to be with Pam and her hubby, but we had to cancel going to Gozo as it was still so windy. We instead went to Wied iz-Zurrieq and to Hagar Qim and Mnajdra Temples, which we still enjoyed of course. We're hoping for a nice day on Sunday to go to Gozo on that day instead.. so fingers crossed for that :)

I have got a card now, for this month's new challenge at

The theme for this month is to make a krafty Christmas card.. I've never used kraft on my cards before so for me this was such a difficult theme... but only managed this!
Still love how it turned out ... The image is from Crissy's Digis of Whimsy Stamps which I coloured with my promarkers, beautiful border die is from Crafty Sentiments and the gorgeous poinsettia dies are from Spellbinders. 
You've still got two weeks to enter your card here as my card is for the mid-month inspiration.
Our sponsor this month is 
who are offering a fab £10 voucher and also 
with this fantastic prize!

Entering my card in these challenges today.

Thought to end off with some photos from today's day with Pam..
Here we are at Wied iz-Zurrieq...

Thank you for looking

Too bad you couldn't go to Gozo. I hope you'll get the chance to go there on Sunday. I'm crossing my fingers for you. :) But it's good that you still had a lovely time.
I think your card turned out beautifully. I love the vintage feel and the sweet image. Even though this might be a a bit different from what you usually do it's still fab! Hugs! xx
