I'm late, I'm late.....

Happy Sunday friends,
I do hope you are all having a great weekend. At least it has warmed up here after the very cold snap that we had this week, and as tomorrow is unofficially the start of spring here in South Africa, it promises to be a lovely day.

I am  late with my card for the Christmas challenge at Digistamps4Joy, just getting in at the ninth hour!
This is a progressive challenge, and if you haven't yet joined, it isn't too late. Just contact Desire and you will receive an image, make your card, post it on the challenge blog, and the following month you will receive the next image. It sure helps to get an early start to your Christmas cards.

This month the image was Santa's helper, and if you didn't join the challenge you can get it at the SHOP

Here is my card and what I used:
Paper: Red cardstock, DP from Scrapsheets - Dear Santa - presents
Stars - gold and white paper block, no name, gold mirror board.- both are Marianne Design dies

Image - Santa's helper coloured with Inktense pencils and distress inkpads. Added texture paste for the fur trim, and a touch of glitter. Ccut out with a Nellie Snellen mfd.

Tartan ribbon and pearls from my stash.

Will be back later to enter some challenges.
