New Monthly Challenge

As it's the 1st of the month it's time for the challenge over at Crafter's Companion.  It's a sketch challenge with the optional theme of non-traditional Christmas.

I'm loving the Beatrix Potter Card kit so much I decided to use what I'd got left to make this card.  As the cards in the kit are double sided I cut up the card blanks to use as patterned papers.  I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
One stop craft challenge - snowflakes in September
Creative Card Crew - blooming marvelous

And as I'd got the kit out, I made another quick card.  This is just one of the card blanks cut in half and matted onto a white card blank, with a couple of the gorgeous rub-ons applied.
My top tip for rub-ons - if you really get it wrong a glue dot eraser will remove most rub-ons.  I haven't had to use it with these as they've worked perfectly everytime.
This card was inspired by the challenges at:
Just inspirational - Christmas
Charisma Cardz - Christmas crafting

I'm off to my demonstration in Stalybridge today, so a whole day of crafting and meeting fellow crafters - I love my job.
