Just hanging around....

Evening Folks
Can't believe it's Sunday evening already.  The weekend just seems to have flown by.  Did get a few more christmas cards made and some more christmas shopping done.
I also put up my tree and decorations today.  I have a passion for soft cuddly snowmen, penguins and santas.  Each year I buy a new stuffed figure to add to my collection.  My daughters did comment that my lounge looks a bit like an explosion in a toy store lol.  But if you can't go a bit over the top at christmas then it's a poor show.
Anyway, I would like to share this card with you.
I have made this card for some special friends of ours.  It is quite a large card (8 x 8).  The image is a stamp from Penny Black.  I think it is just so cute and really adds a touch of humour.  I coloured the image using promarkers.  The bauble was done by stamping the image onto patterned paper, cutting it out and then sticking it on.
The layout was using the sketch from the Sketch Saturday challenge.  All the papers are from Papermania and have been matted onto green cardstock.  The ric-rac ribbon, christmas tree and holly are all felt.  Finally added a computer sentiment, some WOC flowers and a glitter flourish cut using my Big Shot.
Here is a closer look at the image.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Sketch Saturday - #184 use sketch
Jellypark challenges - Fa La La Felt  use some felt
Joanna Sheen - 1  Christmas Wishes
Ribbon Girl - Jingle all the way to christmas
