Red and green Christmas and some exciting news

Well blogger worked OK with the pic linking today but still can't see my followers but I know you are there. It's a lovely warm Sunday though showers are forecast later so I'm just doing a quick post before we head out for the day.

My card is the completely opposite colours to my challenge at Winter Wonderland where red and green must not be seen. I've used a Sugar Nellie image which tough not a Christmas image looks warm and cosy on a Christmas card I think. Papers are Papermania Classic Christmas. The sentiment and holly border are K&Co.

Challenges:
Sugar Bowl Great sketch
Sir Stampalot Anything Goes
Allsorts Free and Easy
Bling it On Anything Goes
I will also be entering this into the Facebook SN challenge of Christmas.

And my exciting news is that Tracy has invited me to join the DT at Squiggle Stamps. I have always loved these stamps. The funny thing is that I was the first guest designer at Squiggle and it was also my first ever guest design spot. Tracy will be relaunching the monthly challenges so I hop you will hop and over and join in when they start.
