Card dare #7

When I read the subject of the new Cardmakers Dare on Friday, I knew exactly what stamp to use. The theme for this week was to use a part of a Christmas song. My "Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow" stamp fit that perfectly.


Unfortunately I didn't get the chance to do my card until today. It's not so complicated really. Red cardstock as the base. The stamp used to form a "square" on the white card. Some Basic Grey patterned paper in the middle and some decorated Christmas trees made with a Rusty Pickle stamp.

I haven't even started my Christmas journal for today yet. Makes me feel rather guilty and stressed really... I'm not sure why. Normally I would have it done by this time. I guess I don't feel in a creative mood at all. I mean, I know what photos I could use...I know roughly what journaling I could do. I guess I just can't come up with a nice idea to put it on paper. If anyone has seen any creativity around, could you please add it in the comments? Thanks LOL!

Have been feeling rather excited as we have planned to go to a Christmas market tonight. However I'm not sure the weather is on our side. Since yesterday afternoon the rain has pretty much poured down all night and day, not to mention the wind. It was looking a bit nicer at lunchtime today, but now it's gone all horribly grey and dark again with a fine drizzle of rain. Hoping we don't have to cancel out plans, but it's not looking good...

Thanks for fitting the dare in Anso! I love your card, but can't help with your crafty mojo - perhaps it's run away with mine to live together in perfect harmony... Ooh, there's another song in there somewhere!
