Winter Wishes - Addicted To Stamps DT Card

Good morning peeps,
Did you see the beautiful Johnny playing rugby yesterday? OMG he looked sooooooooo scrummy, poor hubby had to put up with me drooling and shrieking at the TV yesterday afternoon, so much for a welcome home for him lol. I do miss the rugger during the summer but next month the rugby world cup starts yaaaayyy, don't all be groaning now think lovely muscly, rugged men, sigh, lol. I'll shut up about the rugger before you all tell me too lol.

Today is new challenge day at
and this fortnight our challenge is
Ingredients
 Medium - distressed inks
Papers - Marianne Designs
Flowers - Magnolia, Prima, Kort & Godt & Wild Orchid
Ribbon - The Ribbon Girl (I think!)
Tools - MS Embroidered floral PATP & Aspen border punch from a PATP set, Marianne Creatables decorative elegance, Picket Fence Crackle Paint (for distressing the papers)
Would you believe naughty old Martha has gone and retired this gorgeous Embroidered Floral PATP, the good news is Simon Says Stamp still has a few in stock so if you want it grab it quick.
 I'm entering my card in the following challenges-
Midnight Madness - fab sketch, Stamps & Fun - Christmas, Papertake - anything goes, Truly Scrumptious - buttons & bows, Whiff Of Joy - buttons & bows, Aud's Sentiments - Christmas, Crafty Sentiments - Christmas, Fussy & Fancy - Christmas, Totally Papercrafts - holidays, Fun With Shapes & More - twine/cord, Christmas Stampin' All Year Long - gimme the bird, Christmas Card Challenges - recycle (button off a cardigan), Corrosive - earth tones

Now for some sad news. Some of you may already know we are missing our lovely Heather from the Simon Says Stamp DT due to her suffering a stroke. For those of you who do pray please say one for our Heather, she really is one of the sweetest people as well as being super talented, and if anyone would like to send Heather a get well card you can email me moominstacey@live.co.uk or any of the other DT girlies for Heather's address, I know she would very much appreciate it.
Thanks for stopping by

    I do like this image (though I'm not really one for animal stamps, mainly cos I'm rubbish at colouring them) and it does make for a gorgeous Christmas card. As always I adore all your lovely little embellies.
