The Sketchy challenge

Yes I know it another Chrsitmas card but I begining to see the end but I'm not doing this next year I'm going to start earlier. So helping me are the sketch challenges and this latest The Sketchy Challenges  and when I saw it I knew it would work as a nearly all white card.
I used the fabulous Catalina wreath die from memory box, the Penny Black sentiment and the cute robins are also Penny Black. I also used the Martha Stewart lattice punch and the Icicle border but promptly put a Marianne tree in the corner and a bow in the other and the border disappeared.
So this went straight in the post and hopefully now received.
At last I've done with shopping its now down to Hubby to get the last bits at the supermarket next week, my job is to tidy round the house of craftstuff and return to somewhere in my tiny craftroom.

  29. I hear ya Debbie!!! I had a few handmade cards I was going to send out....I am not nearly as talented a card maker as you are!!! Everyone else was going to get a store bought one from my after Christmas stash I got super cheap last year after the holidays......well, my 7 year old thought it would be so nice to give all 30 kids in his class a card, his teachers, the lunch lady and his brothers......and then my stahs was GONE! SO I have been frantically creating cards to send out the past week as well........next year I will do at least one Christmas card a week......lol

    This is beautiful btw!!!!
