Good morning blogland!
Hope you are all well. My card today is for Crafting for all Seasons where the challenge for the next fortnight is "Dies cuts and punches".
Our sponsor for this challenge is:

"If you are looking for fun, cute and lovely digi stamps for your paper-crafting or web design projects, The Paper Shelter is your one-stop boutique! This growing catalog of high-quality digi stamps with many different kind of options offers a multitude of themes such as everyday items, holidays, special occasions, children, adorable characters and creatures. Stamps are available in standard black and white line art, as well as in pre-colored format. Images are wonderful for coloring and make perfect additions to greeting cards and scrapbook albums. In "The Paper Shelter" you'll also find great other resources for all crafts (or digital) projects, like Paper Packs, Printables, Accesory sheet, etc."

I have used "The Best Nap Ever" from The Paper Shelter. This stamp comes as a digi, uncoloured and coloured; I have been a little pushed for time this week so I've used the coloured version, but added some red Promarker to the hat, as I wanted to make a Christmas card (my FIRST one this year).
I've used a scallop circle die to cut the image out and stuck it onto a background of snowflake-embossed card, wrapped in twine. I added the little "twas the night before Christmas" wording on my PC and some little snowflake punchies to which I've added tiny gems.
Hope you like it. Over to you lovely lot now....dig out those dies and punches and show us what ya got!
Big Hugs

A lovely start to your Christmas card making. The layout is simple but very effective leaving the image stand out.
