A Little Gift Tilda - Addicted To Stamps DT Card

Good morning peeps,
I am at last beginning to catch up with myself thankfully. I have spent hours shopping online & in town for those "perfect Christmas presents" and some have arrived and are wrapped & stashed away, I am getting there with my large order for invitations, I've just got to add the finishing touches & print the inserts, & I've even been out & had a long overdue potter in the garden as it's not been touched in months since I slipped a disc in my back so you can image the shocking state it was in, weeds, weeds, & more weeds, any dandelion loving rabbit would have been a very happy bunny out there lol.
I do have to go shopping again as I need a new daylight lamp, mine has gone & died on me & that's something I class as essential especially during the gloomy Winter months.

Today is new challenge day at
& this fortnight our challenge is
As always my lovely & super talented teamies have made such beautiful cards for your inspiration, pop over & take a peek
Ingredients -
Medium - Copics
Papers - Pion
Sentiments - Lili Of The Valley
Flowers - Wild Orchid & stash
Lace - The Ribbon Girl & eBay
Pearls - Melissa Frances & Wild Orchid
The gorgeous large snowflake was a gift from my lovely teamie Teresa (thanks hunny x), the leaves are Make It Crafty chipboard which I've coloured with Vintage Photo distressed ink pad and the cute little gingerbread man button I bought at the NEC last year & I can't find the website now to order more grrrrr.
I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
2 Sisters - holiday, Craft Your Days Away - buttons/bows, One Stop Craft - Christmas fairies, Secret Crafter - borders & flowers, Sweet Stampin - punches & dies, Totally Gorjuss - sparkle, Bah Humbug - fabric, Crafty Ann's- monochrome/sketch, Fairytale - Christmas, Simply Create Too - all about Christmas, Totally Papercrafts - Christmas, 4 Crafty Chicks - snowflakes, Aud's Sentiments - Winter holiday sentiment, Divas By Design - monochromatic, Flutterby Wednesday - open, Little Red Wagon - Christmas, My Mum's Craft Shop - things with wings, 7 Kids College Fund - Christmas in non traditional colours, Truly Scrumptious - Christmas with pearls

Now I can almost breathe a massive sigh of relief I am so missing colouring it seems like ages ago I last whipped those Copics out, actually it was, well over 2 weeks is ages to me as I've been using up images I had previously coloured, no wonder I'm suffering withdrawal symptoms lol.
Thanks for stopping by
