Oh Christmas Tree!

Good afternoon everyone must say I can't believe its 10th October today my goodness where are the days going?  I hope you all had a lovely weekend and are all set for the week ahead.  We're going to see Peter Kay tomorrow night so quite looking forward to that!  I've made a card with Tilda today carrying a little Christmas Tree.  She is so cute and she looks so wintry and frosty that I just had to add some glitter - any excuse!

The papers are Marianne - Traditional Christmas.  Being a nurse I'm a bit wary of using red and white (blood and bandages!!) but there is a bit of green in there so its not too bad.  The gorgeous doily type square die I won in Tracy (Dies to Die for) birthday candy - thank you so much xx  The flower die is a Marianne die which I inked with my all time favourite Hero Arts Script stamp. I have used my Edgeabilities mmmm still in love with them!!  The sentiment is Inkadinkado. I have used Flower Soft around her coat and hat to look like fur. Ribbon, charm, brads and gem all from stash.  I will enter in the following challenges:

The Cutie Pie Challenge - Bingo (I chose the line glitter, sentiment and charm)
Marianne Design Divas - Use Flowers
Christmas Inspiration - Use Bird or Flower
Sentimental Sundays - Anything goes + a Sentiment
Pink Gem Challenge - Christmas plus a heart/s
Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Anything goes as long as it Sparkles
Card Makin' Mamas - Fancy Folds
Crafty Ann's - Inspired by a Christmas Song (Oh Christmas Tree)

Thanks so much for looking, take care xx
