Another Wee Christmas

I'm loving this new stamp, I chose this paper by My Minds Eye, as it's snowing at the moment so a very "now" Christmas card, almost done, just some to take in on Monday & I can have a BIG clearup.
How is everyone else getting on?
just a quick visit I'm off to see Chitty Chitty Bang Bang on ice which is also appropriate, I hope my car doesn't go skidding along to the ice rink.
Many thanks for any comments as they are always appreciated.

Tilda is mounted on oval nesties, borders are punched with MS loops border punch & flowers are punched with EK flower punches & are spritzed with gold glimmer & distressed for the challenge & fixed with brads,red ribbon.
I think I've covered everthing, now for the dreaded linking, which I'm afraid is a bit hit & miss with me, so here we go.

Two challenge cards on DC

he first one is PB Challenge all one colour I've used Gazing Shepherd mounted in a circle nestie & used BP from DCWV I Cuttlebug snowflakes embossing folder.
This is the first time with this cute image & I think he is so angelic, remember when my son looked just like this & was a shepherd in the Nativity plays.

Challenge card for Friday sketchers PBSC & Tuesday taggers

I hope it#s ok to combine three challenges, I've used the sketch for Friday Sketchers & the theme which is Halloween for the others.
I have used PB Dressed to Scare & used promarkers for the very first time, must admit I found them really clumsy as I'm used to watercolours & not too sure about the blending. I just got them at the secc yesterday.
The papers & the bat are from K&co & sentiment is Hero Arts, also added sticky ribbon
Thank you for taking the time to look & for any comments which are always appreciated

I have watercoloured Tilda & used nesties circles, Basic Grey BP, some sticky ribbon & school stickers which I found , I had used my last apple button this week & couldn't find another locally, so these stickers were the best option, keeping with the schoolgirl theme.

I hope this is ok for the challenge. Thanks Ann x

I've been going down to the beach recently to help with a chest infection, I should go more often, it's a shame we just take for granted what's on our doorstep.
