Christmas and a Giveaway!

Today I'm sharing 3 holiday cards- the first one is for this month's sketch challenge at the Craft's Meow:


....and the next are inspired by Kristina Werner's Holiday Card Series, days 11 and 12 (I'm working up to 25! Pretty much halfway there....)




-----------------------------------------------
...And now for the giveaway!

Do you remember when I was guest blogging at Ella Publishing? Well, they were so kind to offer a chance for one of my readers to win a free eBook! The fabulous book is 31 Thank You Cards.

Here's some more info:

Kristina is one of my favourite designers and it's great to see your take on her cards. I love your 'day 12' card - great to see you using the technique in a fresh way :)

Thank you for the chance to win a copy of '31 thank you cards' - it will be an absolute treat.

I'm usually the one sending out the handmade cards - thank you ones included - so no, I am yet to receive a handmade thank you card :)
