Traditional Christmas!

Good morning all and hope that your week is going well. Wednesday seems to have zoomed round quickly again! Tilly the Dog coped very well with Bonfire Night on Monday and all the fireworks going off (it did sound like a re-enactment of the Somme at times outside).  She tried to hide behind the sofa a couple of times but then couldn't turn round to get back again and I did have visions of my new wallpaper getting scratched as she tried some bizarre yoga positions to turn! So she had to shift into reverse gear and shuffle backwards - and it's quite funny watching our pudding of a dog doing a reverse waddle from the back of the sofa! But hopefully now most of the fireworks have finished - and the cold frosty weather we had has now changed to grey damp November drizzle.

Anyway, I'd like to share a card with you today that was made for the Whimsy Design Challenge - and a new challenge for November is starting over at Whimsy Inspires 'Traditional Christmas Colours' so that leaves plenty of scope for everyone!
This was made with a digi stamp from Whimsy - a Lia Stampz 'Andrew'.

I've coloured the image with promarkers and pencils. I made a tri-fold 6" square card. The backing papers are from First Edition with lovely traditional Christmas colours and images. 

The holly corners are from a Cheery Lynn die with some red beads for berries, and then some sheer ribbon and some red seam binding in a bow. 
So very traditional Christmas colours from me.  Do pop over to the Whimsy Inspires challenge and have a look at some of the fabulous samples the design team have produced - and then join in! 
Back soon,  Kim x
