Moving Along With The Times 'Christmas Gifts' Challenge

Good morning all, can you believe the weather we have had this week what a completely messed up summer it's been.

Now before I get to the challenge I just want to apologise to you all for not getting around to visiting, I will get there I am just a little behind!

This week at Moving Along With The Times it is my turn to choose the challenge and I chose 'Christmas Gifts' and let me tell you the design team have done a wonderful job. This week we are being sponsored by Digi My World who very generously gave us images to use on our creations.

I chose to make a tea light holder card, this is my first attempt at making one of these and two went in the bin before I got to this stage. I have used one of the images from the 'Elf Life' set available in the digi store.

The photo's have again been taken with my hubby's ipad but my new camera is on it's way yay.

This is it from the front.

Here it is from the side just to give you another view.
