I will be ready for Christmas

I know that I have been absent but I ran out of internet this month and
it was soooooo lonely having to wait to get back.
Tried to sweet talk Telstra into giving me extra GB but they
wanted more than I could afford so I will just have to 
cut down on my blog hopping.  BOO HOO. 
Yes I am determined to be ready for Christmas this year
at least with my cards.
Today I am following the sketch from 52 Christmas throwdown.
and I love it so good for using up left overs.
I shall be making more of these as they will be so easy to post
come the festive season which is what I need.
The sprig of Holly is part of a stamp that I have had for years.
I stamped and embossed, coloured and covered with Dimensional Magic
then cut it out and then 3D it.
Just the glitter around the sections I feel has set it off.

I am entering this in :
52 Christmas Throwdown - Sketch
Make it Monday -  Anything goes Linky party
The Squirreland the Fox - Christmas in July

Thank you for dropping by and for your very welcome comments.
