A little bit of Christmas

I was in the mood for a bit of Christmas yesterday.  The base card is SU Pear Pizzazz and layered with an older SU christmas design paper also SU Red Riding Hood.  I decided to do a gate fold card for a change.  This cute little image is called Buttons and from Cardmadfairy Creations.  I had fun colouring him with my Copic pens.  I then used my Spellbinder Reverse Wonky Rectangle Die to cut around and emboss the image.  The sentiment and the stripe down the right hand side that you can hardly see is a rub-on.  Finally remembered to use a brass christmas tree tag that I have had in my stash for a while.  I tied a little bit of gold thread to the top.

Sun is back out here today and the teenagers will be celebrating I am sure......once they wake.  They miss out on so much sunlight.  :-)  Food shopping is on my agenda.  Yay!
Have a good one everyone.
