Here is mine- this is very loosely the Santa topic. And I know why I haven't used the stamp as I really strggled to put it together into a card  Sad
It is a Paperartsy stamp. the background is made with some pastels (which are very chalk like) blended then embossed with swirls and swiped and embossed with gold.

Lovely card Vonny.  The background is super.   Keep up the good work.

I used that set for my Christmas cards a couple of years ago.  I work with someone who is potty about Elvis and when I made hers, I used the Elves have left the building stamp on the inside page.   Laughing

Love the robin Becky.  

I have used a magazine freebie kit to make four similar cards and here are two of them

I enjoyed making these, perhaps because there was no pressure to "get them done for Christmas"!

Sorry to be late posting.
