Would a piece of holly suffice as my Christmas gift to you darling?

That's what flew through my mind when I'd finished making this card:
It's the thought that counts after all :)

I used:

- 6" x 6" square white card stock

- Penny Black Stickeroo from the 'Together In Christmas' set

- backing paper from a ''Tis The Season' pack, free with Quick Cards Made Easy magazine

- a snippet of Certainly Celery SU card to back the image, and sticky pads to adhere it to the card itself

- ribbons from the ribbon box

One thing that constantly surprises me, and it isn't as if I have as many patterned backing papers as most, there's always one to go with a Stickeroo - so long as I have the time to rootle through.

This is my second entry for Sarn's Rudolph Day challenge - a lovely set of stamps to be won and I'm trying hard!

I'd also like to enter this into Winter Wonderland's current challenge which is 'To The One I Love'.

And, St. Luke's current challenge which is 'Couples'.

I do hope Mrs Penguin is grateful and doesn't tell Mr Penguin to stick it where the sun don't shine - ouch! Wash my mouth out with soap - bad, bad girl saying things like that :(

Love the card Di. It reminded me of a book I illustrated for a couple of schools...the book was called The Queen's knickers. I made a rag doll queen and all her special pairs of knickers including her Christmas pair that had holly attached....in the book it says that's why she keeps her Christmas speech short! :-)
Hugs,

Go Di, go Di, you can win those stamps!

Love the card, beautiful Crimbo colours and think the image is very cute. I think he is saying 'Mrs Penguin, l have a piece of holly stuck in my beak' and obviously she can't understand a word he is saying cause his gob is full of holly lol.

Have a great day Di xxx

Lovely put together card, sweet image, great papers. Love the ribbon.
My Mother always said it brought good luck if you had holly in the house at Christmas, so getting a sprig of holly for Christmas you may get lucky!!!!!!
