on a roll now with the Christmas cards.........

Hello to you, I hope you are all in fine fettle and have had a good Saturday......having got the h****work out of the way this morning, I've had my Mum over for a crafty afternoon. Got a few cards made whilst the hubby was in the kitchen making a lovely chicken curry, so good day so far and now looking forward to X-factor this eve.........sorry, Im not a strictly girl!
This was the first of todays cards that I photographed
So, the image is from Bugaboo, I love these little bonnet girlies, and is coloured with promarkers, I also used a sakura white gel pen to add a touch of faux stitchiness to the image. The paper is Helz Cuppleditch special delivery, I do apologise that I cant remember where I got this sentiment from as I have had it saved on the pc for several years now, the holly is cut with a sizzix die and then embossed with swiss dots, I often used red buttons in the place of the berries but thought I'd added flowers for a wee change. The ribbon, rik-rak and candi from my stash. As its a bit of a cute card, it seems a good excuse to remind you all that the Cutie Pie challenge this time is Cute Christmas!

I've seen some stunning cards whilst just having a quick flick through my newsfeed, so I will try to get some blog visits in when I've done this

I would like to enter this into these challenges:
catch the bug - september anything goes challenge
Christmas Stampin' all year long - layers
crafty ribbons - anything goes with ribbon
aud sentiments - any sentiment
crafty hazelnuts christmas challenge - layer it up
