Believe in the magic of Christmas.

Morning everyone... hope you all had a great weekend, whatever you were up to. I did absolutely nothing..
apart from my bit of baking, I just vegged out in front of the TV...  :-)
Oh, yes and I did manage to find time to put together this simple card.

 This is still one of my fav. stamps of the season, even though it takes me forever to colour it. The background sheet is really blue and the head dresses ( what are they called?? ) are green, but that's kind of hard to make out in my photo.

Challenges - 
Lili of the Valley - Glitter and Glitz.   I added glitter around the edges of the red card, and at the feet of Mary & Joseph. Their head bands are drawn with a Glitter Sakura pen.
CES Challenges - Lovely Lace
Create 4 Fun - Sketch ( I rotated it, to suit my image)

Stamp - LOTV, Mary and Joseph, coloured with Copics and stickles gliter ( frosted lace). DP is Dovecraft, Christmas Fancy. 'Believe' is a Making Memories Velvet saying.  'Merry Christmas' is Making Memories Chipboard sticker.

I also want to say a HUGE thankyou to Emma,
for the fabulous Candy that I won.
Look at all these amazing goodies.

At the moment Emma has some Fundraising Candy up for grabs.
