Sunday Blog - ETSY FINDS : Christmas card Special

Welcome back and thanks to all that had a peek at our Advent Doodle attempts so far....

happy dance

Today's Etsy Finds is a little special, as it is CHRISTMAS related. 
I love Christmas, its so fun, and merry and bright. 

A few weeks ago I put a shout out on Twitter for any creatives who wanted to take part in a Christmas Card swap. I had lots of interest and swapped some of my cards with 3 lovely ladies from various parts of the country. 

Here are their Etsy stores so you can see what beauties I have in my possession:

Contact sarah via her FB page to purchase any cards, or have a peek at her work:

Now I just need to decide which lucky recipients will receive such LUSH cards. 

Lets KEEP GOING.......

Not one to be biased on just sharing Etsy Finds, here are some Fabulous Folky Finds from:

Kate Marsden

These are just Super cute, Super Simple and Super Festive. 

Thats all for now Folks. 


Advent Doodle Challenge - Faye Brown

Etsy Finds blog post will be along shortly, With a Greeting Card Special. So make sure you come back later for that....

But for now, I'd like to share a fun little Festive challenge, set by the lovely Faye Brown.

She has created this fabulous Advent Doodle challenge and my children have decided to join me in this little venture to create 25 festive little doodles. 

See Faye's blogpost about the challenge HERE

We have completed the first 9 days, as we started late.

My son Alexander is just 5, and still learning to grip a pencil, so mummy had to help with the details a little: 

Carla is 8 years old, and loves to fill every square space of white with patterns:

And here we have my attempt...
 Im quite happy with black and white for now: 

I will blog every week, with visual updates on our little challenge. The kids had so much fun, they are looking forward to coming home from school and adding to the challenge. 

Until Next time.
