Urchin with a Bird

Good afternoon all you crafters and ofcourse those of you who have chosen to follow my blog.
Looks like all of my scheduling worked for the last week so I am a happy camper.
I have just had a wonderfully relaxing weekend with my mum at a Warner Leisure Holiday in Cricket St Thomas.  A definite mum/daughter weekend which was really good.  Had okay weather too.  The grounds at that place are stunning and the house, which was used in the sitcom 'To the Manor Born' was lovely.  I loved that sitcom and still watch the re-runs now so it was brill to actually see the house and that staircase where Penelope Keith stood in the last episode.  I know, I am probably boring you all now.

Well, onto my first christmas card.  I have started with an 8x8 card with green card matted onto that.  The image is a digi stamp from mo manning which I coloured with my copics.  The background paper was from my crafty stash although I have a feeling it was originally printed from one of Jo Sheen's cd roms.  The poinsettias and leaves are a mixture of marianne dies and spellbinders.
This card is also a DT card for Floral Challenge at my friend Sheila's blog.
Well I do hope you like my first christmas card and thank you for stopping by.  Take care.
