Christmas Dinner or Dog's Dinner?

Hi everyone

Thanks for calling by.

Today's card is made with one of the new LOTV Christmas stamps, I just couldn't resist this release and bought six of them, so expect to see them popping up now and again, although I'm off on my hols again on Monday, so you won't be hearing from me for 3 weeks (BIG smiley face!)

Anyway, back to the card - the papers are digis, from Bearly Mine Designs (I think!). The little red snowflake border was an MS punch, the musical paper is stamped with a Whimsy stamp (a pressie from my friend Tasha), and then embossed with WOW embossing powders - I love these for fine detail work.  The poinsettias are cut with a Marianne Design die, to which I added punched stamens cut from coffee filter papers and then dyed with distress inks.  A little bit of stitching, a sentiment stamped with an old HOTP stamp, a bit of ribbon from my stash, lots of Stickles, and that's about it.

Hope you have time to leave a comment as I love hearing what you think.
