Penny Black Christmas

We were going to go to Mum and Dad's caravan today but with all the rain, gales, thunder, hailstones and upside down rainbows we decided to stay put and have a lazy day instead.

My card today is my weekly Christmas card and as usual I am entering it into a few challenges.

Image - Penny Black 'Welcome Party' coloured with Promarkers
Glitter Card - Wilkinsons
Swiss Dots Embossing Folder
Sentiment - Clear Art Stamps Impressions Kit
(I thought this was suitable as Dogs, Cats and Mice are supposed to be enemies lol)

Bah Humbug - Mice
Winter Wonderland - No Red or Green
ABC Christmas Challenge - N for No Nonsense
Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Christmas in July
Moving Along with the Times - Christmas in July
I love Promarkers - Clean and Simple
House of Gilli - Lots of Sparkle

Don't blame you for staying put but let's hope we see some sunshine while the kiddlings are on holiday so we can get out and about or there won't be any 'Peace' in our household lol!
This is a really pretty card with the crisp icy blue and white contrasting with the softness of your colouring.
