GOOD NEWS and 25 days of Christmas Color Revelations!!

Hello my dear friends and fellow crafters :) I know I have been missing in action lately. Though you see my DT posts often, they were scheduled long time ago and I haven't been able to catch up with all of you lovely people. Sorry about that!! But not any more... coz I am tooooooooooo happy to just sit back and relax, I want to craft as much as I can. You must be wondering why???!!!??!! So here's the Good News... "We are in the family way and our lovely little one is expected to arrive in the end of January" This calls for celebration and I am celebrating with creativity. 

So from today onward I am starting a 25 days card series on my blog. 25 day must have made it obvious, yes!! I will be showcasing a Christmas card both to inspire you and also to build up my Christmas stash. But there is a twist to it, I will make each of these cards using a Christmas Color Palette that I have on my Pinterest Board Called "Christmas Colors". I decided to call this series ....

"25 days of Christmas Color Revelations".

My very first card is inspired by colors in THIS pin. 
Christmas Color Palette: Winter Wonderland, Art Print by Jill Ankrom:
Here is my card... 

To make this card I have used Santa is here  and Mixed Media Grunge set
      
 

Since this series is starting with a happy note, I thought I will do a GIVEAWAY... and for that all you have to do is leave a comment on these posts and by the end of 25 days I will draw TWO winners to receive the following Christmas Stamp sets designed by me "Christmas Bell Medley" and "Santa is here" respectively

Thank you so much for all your love all along, all I need now is more of your lovely wishes for the  upcoming new member in our family :)

Thank you for stopping by and leaving me a comment !!
