One More Sleep!

Well it's nearly here, just one more sleep! so just a quick post to show you the card I made for my in-laws. I have to say that this card is one of my favourite Christmas makes this year, my other fave was the Magnum and Christmas tree card that I dedicated to the Lovely Ladybugs!

Here's the close up of the Holly that I promised you yesterday,I just scored and shaped it,added some gold pen around the edges and some gold Luster rub on which is  a bit like cream eye shadow.

The image is one of Gayle Bond's along with the sentiment from a forever friends set of stamps. I hand cut the tiny tags and stamped with Dove Craft family stamps.

I stamped the inside of the card too with a snowflake stamp.

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
Alphabet Challenge,W, White Christmas,
Delicious Doodles,Anything goes,
FWSAM99,Frame it,
Stampin for the Weekend 23, Anything goes,
SWTD, Let it snow.
Whatever you are up to tomorrow,I hope you have a wonderful day,
Thanks for stopping by,
