Christmas is coming at CLF

It's time for another challenge over at Crafty Little Fairies and this week the theme is Christmas in October........hooray! ....a good excuse to crack out some of my Christmas stuff!
Goodness me - colouring this image was a bit of a labour of love but so worth it. I can honestly say I love every minute of it and I was really pleased with ow it came out.

The image is quite large and a whole scene in itself, so it didn't need much else to make up the card, but I tried to carry on the holly theme with a gorgeous backing paper from Bearly Mine which is part of a set called Christmas Glee.

The die cut holly is one of my old Mariannes Designs dies, topped of with some pearl stickles for the berries, and I have stuck with the pearls rather than glitter this time by adding lots of dinky little stickles pearls around the edge using opal white which I  LOVE!!!!

So I hope you will hop on over to the Crafty Little Fairies Challenge to see the other gorgeous Christmassy creations (the really are beautiful) and send us a little picture of your own Christmas cards - we love to see what you have made.

And last but not least, here are some other lovely challenges that I would like to enter:

Well that's all from me today, so until next time....happy crafting!
