Moving Along with the Times (MAWTT) - Christmas Scene

Hi My Crafty Blogs Friends

How is your week going? I had a lovely catch up with friends yesterday and I got to purchase some crafty goodies. The preparations for Christmas are certainly steaming ahead.

You might have noticed from my sidebar that I have joined the MAWTT challenge blog Design Team. I responded to a request on Facebook and I was thrilled when they accepted my application.  I am in team B and this is my first post for them. The new challenge starts today and the theme is Christmas Scenes.

I have been very guilty this year of buying lots of lovely dies and not getting round to using them. I used three of those dies on this card. All the dies in question were designed by Sue Wilson for Creative Expression.  I started by cutting the Starry Night Sky die in black. I used a silver mat behind it to show off the stars and the moon. 

In the center of the Christmas Scene Mini background is a tiny Santa on his slay with two reindeer. They were just the right size for my card I just cut more reindeer and glued them in place. 

I cut both of the dies in the Christmas Cottage Scene set in white and  backed them with gold mirri card to look like lights. You can just see the two deer. 

The Merry Christmas was cut with a Signature die. 

Thank you for stopping by enjoy the rest of the week.

Happy Crafting
