GDT with Fab 'N' Funky - Christmas

Wonderful Wednesday to you all!

I am back again this week playing along with the gorgeous girls from
and the challenge this week is one we all usually need a push to get started on....
#85 -Christmas

I used to be 'one of those' that left all my Christmas cards till the last minute but over the years I have really started to organize my self and  now start them around July.  I don't think one can ever have enough or too many Christmas cards can they???
Today I was a very lucky girl and got to play with a Fred She Said Digi Stamp.  This is one from my stash called Christmas Rose, that I just adore and I think it is gorgeous and so Christmas-y.  I have also opted for the pre-colored version today too.

Ok, So maybe it is just me but I do think this has turned out just simply beautiful! - I might be a little biased lol I wanted the diecut top frame to really help focus in on the image so I left this card fairly embellishment free and that's a nice change for me.  I only added the one flower (everything must have at least one flower) and well .... ribbon, I don't think I need an excuse to add ribbon now do I girls?? lol!
is also sponsoring this weeks challenge!
And they are giving one lucky winner a voucher to go shopping in their shop!
Lucky crafty so and so!
That voucher will be easy to spend as they have some MUST HAVE digi's!
So if you are the lucky winner and need some help with your shopping, please fee free to give me a poke and I will gladly help you spend it !!! :))

The Fab 'n' Funky girls have again outdone themselves with some beautiful holly jolly inspiration for you all this week, so please do drop by and share some love with them all and play along with us!

I hope you like what you see today and I look forward to you all playing along too this week!

Hi Leesa! This card is simply beautiful! I think the die cut bracket works perfectly to set off your lovely candle image! I love the flower and the bow finishes it off just right. Thank you for joining us for our Fussy and Fancy "Christmas In Aug." challenge!
