Now the holly bears a berry as blood it is red


I am so far behind on my Christmas cards but here is one that I have managed to make featuring the adorable Berry, from Wee Stamps.


This card will be winging its way overseas, if I can ever get to the post office!  What happened to this year I just don’t know but Christmas has snuck up on me worse than last year and there are more things left undone than done.  But at least I can tick one card off my list, one that I think turned out really sweetly.

In making up my card I’ve followed the sketch over at Bearly Mine Challenge and used a couple of their Christmas Traditions digi papers.    The current challenge at Through the Purple Haze is to use your favourite Christmas colours.  When it comes to Christmas I am a real traditionalist so I’ve gone with a red and green colour scheme.

Seeing as I am trying desperately to catch up on my Christmas card making I guess this card fits the current Cute Card Thursday challenge so I’m entering it over there.  It’s certainly the season for Christmas cards and that’s the current theme at Creative Knockouts where I’m also linking this card.  I’ve got lots of sparkly bling so I’m entering it at the current Craftitude challenge and, as I’ve coloured my image up with Copics and it is holiday themed I’m also linking it at MarkerPOP.
