O Christmas Tree

Hello everyone... it's a bit blustery here today.
I nearly got blown away with the dog on our morning walk and is there anything worse than wearing lip gloss when it's windy? 
Arrgghhh - I was forever peeling hair from my lips.

Here's another Christmas card for the pile.


I've just bought this little tree stamp - it's so pretty, I couldn't resist it. 
I have paper-pieced it and then used a silver pen to highlight parts of the pattern.


IRL this card is very glittery and sparkly - I scattered glamour dust everywhere! I think I am going to have to order a case of this stuff. :-)
