Week 131 The Holly and the Ivy

Sorry I missed last week's challenge, but have been flat out doing cards for other folk. Still got my own Christmas cards to make yet, wish me luck.. Even being in the height of summer and parts of the country are in drought already, it's the same the world over that there are not enough hours in the day to get everything  just right for Christmas.

Onto this weeks challenge to use holly/ivy in our creations. Well that's an easy peasy one for me. I loved this sketch we had recently from Pauline and used it again.  The holly leaves are a stamp I've had for ages. I used some dimensional magic on the berries.

It's my birthday today , I absolutely hate having it so close to Christmas. I'd love to be able to change the date by deed poll. Ha Ha.
My present to myself was a couple of  new Penny Blacks and some Sir Timmy Distress inks, loving the colours which Squirrel suggested for the meeces and they work well on my cats. 

Cheers for now
