That stamp again

We have been away for a couple of days in Birmingham as we went to see Simple Minds and Ultravox in concert last night. We had a fantastic day yesterday. There was a wonderful German Christmas market and we were in the library having a coffee when we saw all these people waiting for somebody and it was Prince William. We were about three feet away from him when he came in. The concert was brilliant. On our way home this morning. 

I have used that lovely Woodware stamp again. Last Saturday it was white on white, then Monday paper pieced and today I have coloured it with Copics. The papers are Marianne Designs Eline's Merry Little Christmas. I have used a new Marianne border die I bought at the NEC along with Marianne large and small poinsettias. The holly leaves were made with a Woodware punch and I added a holly leaf charm, pearls, Viva pear pen drops and stickles.
