A very Beary Christmas

I`m on a roll now with my Chrissy cards, I`ve surprised even myself, normally I`m rushing around at the last minute trying to get cards made in time for Christmas but this year I am determined to get them all done in advance.
This image is Milton and Co available from Sir Stampalot, coloured with distress inks, the little robin image is from the new Penny Black Christmas Friends set also available from Sir Stampalot.
Background Stripey paper is Fancy Pants and the holly paper is another forgotton one from my stash I found on a recent sort out and rummage ! (I`m getting good at using up old bits and pieces now)
I finally got my head around my new Magnolia doo hicky doily, it`s a bit fiddly to line up so I only used a half of the design for this.

These beuatiful flowers are from Wild Orchid and now I`ve discovered them I`ll be buying a lot more in the future, I`ve highlighted with a bit of stickles - diamond to give a little Christmas bling, I can`t do a card without sparkle !n The holly is made with a Martha Stewart punch.

I`d like to enter this into the following two challenges :-
Wild Orchid Challenges - Christmas Fun
Allsorts Challenge - Bear with us

Thanks for looking in, bye for now and Happy Crafting xx
