Christmas is creeping up!

I'm back again with a new challenge over at Totally Papercrafts. We had some fantastic entries in our last challenge. And this new challenge, chosen by our lovely Susan is '9 weeks and counting', Christmas is on it's way! So we'd like to see your Christmas creations!

I decided to use one of my Humphrey stamps from CraftersCompanion that I bought last year

I've coloured the image with promarkers and added lots of stickles (no surprise there then lol!). 

The backing papers are from Dovecraft, with some plain card from stash - and using the Spellbinders 'floral oval' die (a new favourite!). The holly corners are from a CheeryLynn die, with some added red beads for the holly berries. 
The sentiment is one of the gorgeous 'Grungy Christmas' ones from LOTV. And then a bow of sheer ribbon from Joanna Sheen. 
So do pop over to Totally Papercrafts and join us with your Christmas offerings! 
Our sponsor this week is 

Back soon, Kim x 

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:-
ABC Christmas Challenge - anything goes
I love Promarkers - anything goes
A&T Emerald Fairies - anything goes
CheeryLynn - corner embellishments
OLLCB - Christmas sentiment
