Allsorts and Pixie's Snippets Playground

I've managed to cover two challenges with one card today, Allsorts Challenge which this week is O Christmas Tree and Pixie's Snippets Playground which is to use snippets/scraps on your card. The stamp I used was from Chocolate Baroque, Gift Of Christmas stamp set with the sentiment coming from The Family Christmas set. It was stamped using Black Onyx and coloured using pro markers, I then added some gems and gold sparkle pen and inked around the card using Worn Lipstick and Shabby Shutters Distress Inks. The green card and Red card were from my larger scraps box. I am going to be very quiet for the next week or so as we are off to the warms climate of Mexico with my Daughter, Son-in-law and Grandson. My Son-in-law comes from quite a large family and they have reunions quite regularly, we have been lucky enough to be invited to join them. I hope to catch up with everyone's blog when we return at the end of the month.

Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.

Ooooh, Mexico Sue, you couldn't have picked a better time as the weather is certainly very miserable the last week or so, have a lovely time.

Got carried away with sunshine and nearly forgot to thank you for joining us at Allsorts, your card is perfect for the theme.

Beautiful card Sue and I do love the pussy cats eyeing up the tree :) I think all the wonderful sparkle and shine has them mesmerised!

And how wonderful to be heading off to warmer climes - I'd love to visit Mexico someday! Have a wonderful time and safe journeys!
