Christmas Time, Mistletoe and Wine !!!

Hello my lovelies,  A typical BH Monday, it's pouring with rain and it's actually very chilly!!!    Nothing else for it but to sit all cosy in my craft room and play with my toys!!!! lol

I made this card for a few challenges and to put in my Christmas box ready to be sent to someone special.  

I used the Sketch from Live & Love Crafts and my so lovely Doohickey die that I bought from the store.  Lots of my ideas came from the other challenge blogs that I'm entering my card into.  As always I'll pop a list of ingredients at the bottom of my post just in case you see something you want more info on.

That's all from me for now, I'm going to pack up a few of my goodies  as tomorrow I'm spending the day with my darling Daughter, we're having another scrapping day with some yummy lunch (I hope !!)

In the meantime I would like to say a very big Welcome to my new follower/friends,  it's lovely to see you and I hope you find a wee bit of inspiration when you visit.
