Hi there! Our internet service has been patchy since all the storms last week but it's up and running this evening so I'm hoping to catch up with visiting some blogs. I also wanted to post 2 cards for the current Merry Monday challenge to use non-traditional Christmas colours.
Although I have lots of wintery images (snowmen, snowflakes, etc) I tend to steer away from them and I try to find ways to incorporate a bit of an island feel into my Christmas cards. I used shells and starfish to decorate the wreath on my first card and then on my second card I used a coral coloured base.
That's it for me tonight. Hope you're all having a lovely weekend!
