Blue, Blue Christmas...

Morning Folks!
Hope you are enjoying the weekend! Last time at Here Come the Boys we enjoyed seeing your Lazy Summer Day creations, this fortnight we are leaping forward in the year with our new theme:


Now, try not to panic because the 'C' word has been mentioned - there's still plenty of shopping days to go!!!

I went for a CAS style with my card, there are a lot of pics after I persuaded my camera that the colour of the card is sparkly turquoise and not a mucky green shade!

Flat view:

The tree stamp is 'Open Tree' by Hobby Art and it has been stamped with a turquoise Brilliance ink pad and then embossed with clear embossing powder. As it's for Christmas I added a bit of bling:

The sentiment inside has been stamped and embossed too, it's from the Stampin Up Wacky Wishes set: 

The inside panel was decorated with a memory box die
 Our sponsor this time is
who is offering the winner a digi of their choice.
We can't wait to see your Christmas creations at Here Come the Boys but don't forget your creation must be for a boy or man - NO girly cards!!
