City Sidewalks Australasian CTMH Blog Hop

Hello and welcome aboard our City Sidewalks Australasian Close to My Heart Blog Hop.

If you have arrived here from Shaunna then you are in the right place.

If you landed here by accident, no problem, please join in by following the link at the end of this post.

Today I would like to share with you a creation which features Close To My Heart’s City Sidewalks collection- a colorful Christmas combination sure to get you in the festive mood!

I am combining today's card with the sketch at Atlantic Hearts.


I random stamped my own background using Willow and Peacock inks, which are two of the colours that feature in the City Sidewalks paper packet. I then added a large strip of the Cranberry paper, and then a smaller strip of the green and blue design.

I stamped the sentiment and frame in Peacock ink on White Daisy cardstock, and added some retired red sequins as the finishing touch.

I'd love you to leave a comment before heading off to the next stop, Maz Wood: aMAZing Close To My Heart Creations.
