A favorite Christmas stamp


I hope you are keeping warm, we have had two lovely frosty nights and days with bright sunshine,so much nicer than the rain! I just need a few more Christmas cards then I am done........This is one of my favorite images.
I went shopping today for a new cardigan------- I forgot it could be so hard! I HATE shopping........ needless to say I came home empty-handed......the sleeves went down to my feet (well, it felt like it) fur collars, no buttons...... all in black/brown or purple!! I think I will have to make do with what I have!! lol......anyway, on to the card

papers are old ones from the English paper co. Winter wonderland
Matted onto navy card
LOTV stamp
Coloured with promarkers
Frostyville corner and border, in holograph silver card
3 ribbons... white/ dark grey/pale grey organzie
sentiment and stickles from stash

I would like to enter the following challenges;

One stitch at a time -------- Anything goes

Dream Valley ---------- Glitter and Bling

The Ribbon girls --------- Add sparkle

2 Sisters challenge -------- Pastel Christmas

Off for a cup of coffee and a laze in front of the telly lol, thank you for your visit

Hugs Tilly x
