Paper Crafting Journey's new Christmas challenge

Hi Crafty Friends,

Come and join in Paper Crafting Journey's new challenge - it's anything Christmas! The sponsor is the one and only The Paper Shelter and that prize is brilliant, wish I could enter! I have used a TPS girl and fussy cut her to go with the background image from The Doodle Pantry, don't they go lovely together?

Our challenge ends on 15th January so you have plenty of time to make some Christmas cards and be in with a chance to win.

Paper Crafting Journey is also having a DT call and it's a fantastic challenge blog to be a part of, they have fantastic sponsors ALL the time! If you're interested in joining you just need to add DT after your name when you enter the challenge. The DT call will end on 3rd January so be sure to write it in your diary.
