The Holly and The Ivy with the Winter Wonderland Design Team

Good morning to you all in the land of blog

Today sees the next challenge at the  

Where Team Icicles are in the hot seat, with the very talented  Pauline hosting with the theme of

The Holly and the Ivy

Our fabulous sponsor this week is

offering the lucky winner to of their wonderful stamps.

Now I decided to go with the Holly aspect of the theme so here is my take on the theme but don't forget to hop over to the main challenge blog to check out the wonderful inspiration there for you.

As you know I adore my House Mouse images so could not resist using one of them.

The base layer here is a pearlescent red and I have used up some of my old papers again.  The grand decorative circle nestie had an issue in the machine, so I adapted it slightly.  The sentiment sits on a nestie banner/ribbon and all finished off with the little red bow, lace and pearls from the Hobby House.

Here is a close up of the image
As always I would like to thank all of my wonderful visitors and followers for their inspiring comments, which encourage me and allow me to hop over in return to see their gorgeous work and welcome my new followers.

Gorgeous card Kate, love the adorable House Mouse image. Hope you are having a good weekend. I had a go at spritzing some flowers but think l must have put a tad too much on as the centre of the flowers picked up yellow from the centre stamen bits - just keep telling myself it is pollen lol. Practice makes perfect. x Susan x
