Cupcake Craft Challenge # 49 & Passion For Promarkers # 8

Good morning everyone, I hope you all had a good rained quite a lot at the majorette display yesterday and the music broke down twice during the routines! The girls were professional to the last though and carried on despite there being no music...the Amethyst Flames girls rock!

Today's card is a joint challenge card. The first is my DT card for this weeks Cupcake Craft Challenge...the theme has been set by my lovely DT buddy Pops and she has chosen...A CHRISTMAS CARD...Yikes, this is my first Christmas card of the year and I don't think I've ever made one in July before lol! The second challenge is Passion For Promarkers and the colour challenge for this week is to use Ruby & Gold on your card! The digi image on this card is from the Digi Stamp Boutique and this lil' beauty is called Chloe. The design papers are PC Crafter and the set is called 'Santa Capades.' The burgundy card stock is SU. Gems, ribbon, lace and sentiment are from my craft stash and the snowflakes were created using a Dovecraft finish off I've added some glamour dust to the snow!

Thats about it folks...I hope you'll come and join us for the Cupcake Craft challenge this week, we had a fab response to last weeks challenge and I'd like to thank everyone who played along with us :)

Adorable Donna! Well, now you've started with the Christmas cards, does it put you in the mood to make more?
I made one over the weekend and I'll not make another this month! lol I wasn't really ready to make that one had it not been for a DT commitment! lol I don't even know where my snowflake punch the bottom of the barrel I presume!
Our weather has been so lovely this summer, I'm enjoying the here and now! Sorry Sophie was rained on...but way to go Amethyst Flames for pressing on!
take care Donna
