Wishing you some early Christmas Cheer

Have you missed me?  

Well I'm finally back in time to wish you some early Christmas Cheer.  Oooh it's hard to get the old mojo going again after a long break but I'm happy with my attempt. 

This is a card for the Less is More challenge which is to do a Christmas card with a bird.  

I started with the tree from Take Care and turned it into a branch.  The branch is firstly embossed in black and then again in white to make the snow.  I used a Versamark Pen so I could add the snow just where I wanted it.  The branch was then fussy cut out.  

The little red bird comes from retired Stylin' Snowfolk and was also fussy cut out.  Both the bird and branch were attached with Dimensionals over a panel of Whisper White embossed with Polka Dot and mounted onto Basic Black.  The card base is Real Red and I stamped Christmas Cheer from Sweet Essentials in Basic Black. 

So hoepfully, fingers crossed, I'm back in crafting mode especially as I have all my Christmas cards to do! 

I've missed you guys so much and I'm looking forward to visiting you to see what you've been up to.  x
