I'm late for a very important date!

Oh dear - I lost track of time this week and forgot to post my challenge card for the lovely Crafty Little Fairies Challenge. So.......better late than is my card which is based on this week's theme - 'For the one you love'.

I have picked the most gorgeous little stamp from the Mulberry Wood Christmas range and had such a lot of fun colouring it it.
Are those robins red or  what? I coloured them with my Graph Its this time round and boy do they give you some strong colour. I also wanted to try out variegated holly leaves and they came out lovely and bright too.

Finally a bit of dotty background practice was in order for the moon and the sky.

The lovely papers that you see are also from the Mulberry Wood CD (although these particular ons were in a free set from a magazine, which saved me the bother of switching on my printer - lol!) They are not exactly traditional Christmas, but I have to admit that I just love these papers more and more every time I look at them - they will definitely be appearing on more of my cards in the future.

Before I go, here are some other lovely challenges that I would like to enter:

So that's my slightly tardy card for you. I do hope that you will find the time to hop over  to Crafty Little Fairies over the weekend  and join in the fun.

Thanks for visiting today.
