Christmas duo for the Stamp With Us challenge

It's Sunday so it's Stamp With Us challenge day. This week's challenge is on the theme of


so I hope that everyone will play along especially as you get two weeks to do this challenge. There is a Stampin' Up! convention in Germany next week (I can't go because I'm on an exam revision course, boohoo - but I'll still be blogging) so the Stamp With Us challenge will return to normal in a couple of weeks.

For the challenge this week I made a card and gift tube in a less traditional colour scheme.

The card is similar to a previous version here but the gift tube is a new design that I got from the SWU online class. It's small enough to hang from a tree or would make an excellent table gift on Christmas day. One of the lovely crafting ladies from St Saviours (more on them later in the week) suggested rolling a lottery ticket to go inside it as a gift for the men - great idea.

Lovely projects and what a great colour combination! Not colours I would have put together, but don't they look fab!
