ABC Christmas Challenge

Hi all, I'm cracking on with my Christmas cards at last - never one to be organised and prepared, I seem to have left it to almost the last minute again.  I know there's plenty of time till the 25th, but what with bad weather hampering deliveries I think it's best to get all cards posted ASAP.  So I'm panicking slightly, and just grateful for all these blog challenges to help give me some ideas for makes.

This is one I've done for the ABC Challenge.  It's up to Y for Yuletide, and the challenge is to use either red and green, or holly and berries, or candles in our creations.  I've gone for Holly and Berries - there's a garland of them on the fireplace that Tilda is perched on, plus a sprig in the corner for embellishment.  I just love the little 'Santa Please Stop Here' placard, I've been waiting for a card on which I could use one.  The images are coloured with Copic markers, and the papers are by Papermania:

Time for a hot drink and a lie down now, and a spot more cardmaking later. 

Happy crafting!
