While Shepherds Watched...

Hooray I'm on holiday now for Christmas!!! Phew, it's been a pretty hectic week but today I can relax (well I'm allowing myself today as I still have cards to send, presents to buy and wrap... basically everything to do)! I thought I'd share this little C & S card I did a while back but never got round to putting on my blog... my blog posts are a little thin on the ground at the moment! Anyway, it's a little image from Di's Digi Downloads... and such a cute image at that! I've coloured it with Promarkers as usual. No DP here, just the navy card cut with my Martha Stewart punch, and the ribbon and hessian to finish... voila!

This is for the following challenges:
Passion For Promarkers Mega Christmas Challenge 'Anything Goes'
A Spoonfull of Sugar - Christmas Card

I'd better go as I can hear the Christmas tree jingling... that'll be 'Spidercat' again... more pine needles to sweep up!!! Have a great weekend!

Hi - thanks for your comment on my pink card - yes, we are only an online store but we like to give excellent service and gift-wrap everything in pink tissue tied with ribbon - even if it is just a couple of metres of ribbon, just like in the 'olden days' It's great fun cos me and Andrea get to choose and buy all the lovely ribbons and other stuff (and I get to use them on my cards) Mary x
