Hiding in the Christmas tree

Good morning friends,
With all this TV watching of football and cycling I have been getting some colouring in done, so at least this month I won't be sneaking in with my card for the Christmas challenge
at Digistamps4Joy. This is a progressive challenge and if you haven't joined you can contact Desire and she will forward you this cute image ..Irresistible Bling, and if you make your card for the challenge, you will get the new one next month. A great way to get a head start on your holiday cards.
Here is what I came up with.


Paper - Winter Papers from My Mind Eye. Got this as a freebie in a magazine years ago and still have a few pages left. Embossed the red with a snowflake folder.

Image - Irrisistible bling coloured with Distress inkpads and Winkling H20's, with glitter and Pontura pearl dots added. Also added some glitter to the trees on the paper, but it doesn't show up too well

Sentiment - Nellie Snellen stamp and punched out with a NS ribbon punch.

For my card I followed the sketch this week from Sunday Sketch & Stamp
Well I can add that to my Christmas collection and hopefully I will still get another one done this month.

As the World Cup finishes this weekend, with sadly The Netherlands out of it now, my TV viewing will also diminish, but still lots of beautiful scenic cycling to look at. Hopefully can get lots more colouring done.

I will enter the following challenges:
Sunday Sketch & Stamp challenge #208
Hambo Hoedown...Christmas in July
Nutcrafters challenge #72...Christmas in July
The House that Stamps Built #72...Fur or winged things
