Christmas bobbin

Hi guys,

I have a Christmas card to share with you today - mainly KRAFT but with a little added sparkle.

I used a KRAFT card base for this card, and then die-cut a Kraft style robbin topper. I die-cut some foiled and glittered patterned paper that I had in my stash. The dies used were X-cut scalloped circle nesting dies. To finish this very simple card I added a merry Christmas sentiment that matched the colours of the patterned paper.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
AddictedtoCAS #183 Animal
CRAFT #553 Christmas
AYLI - My favourite none birthday occasion has to be Christmas because there is so much scope for creating
WinterWonderland - Angels or Anything with wings

As promised here is the audiobook review:
Children of Time by Adrian Tchaikovsky
Humanity has almost completely destroyed Earth and is looking to terraform planets that have a similar composition to Earth, to allow for the human race to continue. There are several planets that have been flagged as suitable, but just as the terraforming project is about to begin a cival war breaks out that causes the project to take a slight turn.
This book then jumps to many, many years in the future and the last remaining humans are trying to find a place to settle and regenerate the human race. They are able to go into stasis and so can travel many thousands of years without aging. However, the terraforming of the planet has done its work and there is a sentient life force on the planet. Who actually has the rights to the planet? Can the last of the human race convince the inhabitants of the planet to let them colonise? Can the inhabitants of the planet trust the humans to try not to take over?
This is a very good book, written alternatively from the perspective of the humans and from that of the inhabitants of the planet, which are certainly nothing like what was expected. It shows how different life may be had something else developed to the degree that humans have on Earth, and how different qualities are evident in different species. A very good read that keeps you interested until the very last word.

Thanks for looking,

Hugz Tinz
