Update 20th Nov. - Wow - my card has made it to the Top 5 at "Stamp Something! 
Thank you so much!

 Hi peeps! Hope you are having a great week, and  managing to keep warm.
Firstly, I have a little bit of exciting news which I would like to share - I have been invited by Liz, co-ordinator at OSAAT to join the DT as from December 12th - Whoo-hoo!! Can't wait to work with the talented DT and digi designers - hope to see you there with your beautiful creations!
Have you made all your Xmas cards yet?  No, neither have I .  Anyway, here's one to go into the "collection" (I use the term loosely of course)! and I am entering it into the following challenges:-
Sir Stampalot - Christmas Traditions.
The Stamp Man - Anything Goes - Christmas.
Bah-Humbug - Reindeer
(there is a teeny-weeny Reindeer on there)!
Stamp Something - Digi Day.
Gorgeous digi image - "Timmy's Stocking" from the talented Mo Manning
Whisper White cardstock and stamped sentiment from Stampin Up.
Patterned papers - MME and Papermania.
The tiny Wish List was cut out (ouch) from a sheet of Bo Bunny Back to Backs.
Image coloured with Copics. 
Fun Flock "fur" on the stocking top plus a sprinking of Glamour dust.
MS border punch.
Red Ribbon.
Machine stitching.
Some distressing has gone on here! - Distress inks (Bundled Sage, Antique Linen and Old Paper) and  scissor-distressing to edges of BP.
 Thanks so much for visiting ~
have a wonderful week.
