Greetings...

Making the most of my last few days of holidays I have today managed to sneak in some more stamping time.  Once again I am playing along with the team at Merry Monday Christmas Challenge blog and their latest challenge Merry Monday #187 - Colleen's Challenge:  Make a Christmas Card with plaids on it! and I am also playing along with the team at Tuesday Morning Sketches using their latest sketch #334.  Having found this sketch to make my plaid card I was still deciding on what image to use on the card front...that is of course until I received my mail yesterday.  My lovely stamping friend Robyn in Townsville had sent me a birthday card and inside had placed a few lovely die cut pieces, one of which I added some pretty gems to and have used it as my Christmas Tree on this card.  Awesome Robyn...thank you so much!  I have then just die cut a small tag, stamped the word 'greetings' onto it, sponged some green ink around the edges and added a twine bow...and yeah Christmas card number 2 for 2016!  Thank you for stopping by and taking a peek.
