Christmas Red & Green

Hello all and hope that you're just about ready for Christmas? I can't believe that it's only a week away and I'm going through my usual psychological melt-down, convinced that I've forgotten things, not done something or overlooked something - but all the while trying to tell myself to calm down, relax, enjoy the season and smile!  Hey ho.  But regardless of my fretting, the rest of the household is starting to get into the Christmas mood - my daughter has finished at uni for her Christmas break, my son finishes school on Friday for 2 weeks and both my husband and I finish work on Friday too - Yippee!  It'll be so nice not to have to wake with the alarm clock and get up in the dark for a while!

Anyway, I've yet another Christmas card to share with you today.  This little cutie is from Wee Stamps 'Heidi'. I've used her before and coloured her with frosty blues, but thought I'd try her with more traditional red and green colours - although I'm still not overly convinced that it works! All honest opinions welcome!

I've coloured her with promarkers and pencils, with a little added stickles and flowersoft 'snow'

As I'm starting to get a bit pushed for time now (to put it mildly!) I just decided to use a simple 6" square gatefold card shape. The holly paper is from Dovecraft and the sentiment stamp is from LOTV. The holly 'button' is from stash. The inside is decorated to match

So quite a simple card really, but I do love these cute images from Sylvia Zet! 
So hope that your Christmas preparations are in full swing!
Back soon, Kim x
