Beat the Christmas Rush March 25th

Christmas Card Tally 15
3 Mar

 My cards for the March BtCR use some die cuts I bought from puzzled29 on Ebay. I’m really into silhouettes at the moment and I think these make quite an effective card that’s quick and easy to do. The sentiment stamp is from the Heard from the Heart Stampin’ Up set.

My lovely regular readers will know all about Beat the Christmas Rush – our aim is to make up to five Christmas cards per month so that we have all our hand made cards done and dusted come November if you link up 5 cards each month you’ll have at least 45 stashed away! So why not join in our monthly linky? You’ll be glad you did! I’ll publish a new link up each month on the 25th and feature my favourite card from the previous month’s entries … and of the February entries I loved these by Wendy not least because I have that paper pad and will be shamelessly pinching Wendy’s ideas.

The small print … please only link up new cards. Up to 5 links allowed per person per month. Mention my blog in your post(s).  It’s not necessary, but I’ll be thrilled if you join my blog as a follower. If you miss a month it doesn’t matter. Have fun.
