Holly Christmas

My blog has had many faces this week and it is still a work in progress
and I did find how to change my type thank goodness.

As I have followed Dawny's sketch on Papertake Weekly I must get this published today.
Well I have sort of followed the sketch but when I start I never really know just where
I am going to end up.
sometimes in the BIN!!!!!!!!!!!
I have tried to add sparkle without adding any bling with my sparkly
DP, the glittery thread and the gorgeous ribbon.
No idea where I got that from.
Tilda's fur is flocking that has some glitter in it but it doesn't show up in the photo.

You will probably see from the shadows in the top photo that I have 3D everything.

Am entering this in:
Papertake weekly-  Sketch
Simon says stamp - Anything goes
Secret crafter - Anything goes
Make it Monday -Anything goes
Just keep on crafting - Anything goes
Winter wonderland - Holly

Hope you have all enjoyed a lovely weekend with sunny skies.
not down to 11 degrees like me.

Thanks for dropping in and for all yor lovely comments
also a big welcome to my newest followers.
