It's Christmas Time - Addicted To Stamps DT Card & Candy Reminder

Hello peeps,
I have at last found time to write my Christmas cards, I had a bit of a shock though as I thought I had done well this year but I still need another 20 + and there is no way I am going to manage that before this Christmas so it looks like I'll be committing the crime of buying cards, gasp, lol.

Today is new challenge day at
& this fortnight our challenge is

 I have at last inked up one of my Christmas LOTV's and I love these even though they are badly neglected, I can't help it I just keep being drawn to those gorgeous Magnolia's like a pin to a magnet lol.

Medium - Copics
Papers - My Minds Eye, Holly Jolly (or it could be Jolly Holly lol)

I hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend, I'm planning on wrapping some presents today as I have loads stashed in various places around the house and I will no doubt forget about some of them and find them during next year which is a usual trick of mine, but I think it's nice that I can produce Christmas presents in April, nobody is expecting them then lol.
