This week I have been working on this card for the Christmas Card Challenge, each day I did a little bit more.  The theme for this challenge was chosen by ASHA the theme being your favourite Christmas song/carol, this stamp came to mind immediately, my beloved Tilda with the snowman.
I have also followed the theme of the previous challenge that was set by Clare, use pastel colours with a circle somewhere on your card.
I coloured the image with pastel flexmarkers, I used my new EK Success circle cutter, it is a brilliant tool, the paper is from a 12 x 12 pack and came with some alpha letters, I used a Cuddly Buddly sentiment stamp, Tonic snowflake punch and a white organza bow.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

I thought that you might also like to know about a DT call that is being made by LISA at

Many thanks to everyone who has left me such lovely comments, I have been on visiting rounds but I still have a way to go, so please bear with me.
I have been doing my mums garden for the last few weeks which has taken up so much of my time, as my mum is 94 and my brother is awaiting a hip operation they are not able to get around, the garden was a real mess and it upset my mum who has always loved her garden, I have now finished the back and just started on the front both mum and bro are really pleased.
Take care see you soon.

Your card is lovely and how wise to combine 2 of the themes! Smart lady.

Just wanted to add how heartwarming it was to read your post about digging over your Mum's garden. Yyou have so much on your own late this year that it was really heartwarming to read how your are doing this for her (and your brother).
