Christmas but not!!

I've been meaning to join in with these challenges but never quite got there till now!!
What challenge?? 
Waltzingmouse fanatics challenge.

This one is to make a Christmas card without using Christmas stamps....time to break out the Russian dolls!!

I do like to decorate the envelope to match...

The stamps feel Christmassy to me and I went with vaguely Christmas colours!!
I love the mix and match possibilities and they're just so cute.
Hope you like it!!


  1. What a fabulous folksy look to your card. I love the pic-nic patterns background and the way you've layered the dolls and medallion - great stuff! Thanks so much for joining us at Waltzingmouse Fanatics. Hope to see you again!

  2. This is a really great idea for our challenge - I'm so pleased you decided to join in with us :-) I imagine folksy Christmas cards like this in Russia - it's really gorgeous.
    Thanks for joining the Fanatics - do come back to play again soon.

  3. What a lovely card and so clever to combine those stamps for a Christmas card.

  4. Oh Sarah I love this! Had to come in for a closer look when I saw it at WM Fanatics Challenge. I love all the color you packed in to this and your stamping is perfect!! Gorgeous!
