Saturday and Craftymess.

Hello Blogging pals ..Welcome to my room .
Hope that you are all enjoying your day , weekend or not.
How excited I am to have been chosen to host this week's  Craftymess challenge . #9
Now , I am not as organised as I was last year . Not many Christmas cards made thus far! So , with that in mind I chose the theme ..Christmas cards/projects  in non traditional colours .
And my card to inspire you ..I HOPE.. with my colour combination of Black and White .


       For my Christmas card , in non traditional colours,  I began with  black card stock . Some Cristina Re ds paper on the bottom and Shimmer White stars and scallop oval . The image, Amanda Writes,  is from Stampabilities. The sentiment in black is from set SU , Gifted .
