Christmas 2013............

............I have made a start on my Christmas cards.

I have used the sketch from 52 Christmas Throwdown for my card today
with the adorable penguin from LOTV.
Have embossed the background with Diamond Trellis from
Couture Creations although it doesn't show up too well in the photo.
the lovely ribbon was recycled from a Christmas gift.

Am entering this in:
Less is More - Black White and a dash of one other colour.
Totally Gorjuss - Anthing goes with a ribbon
Hiding in my Craft Room- Black White and 1 other colour.
Make it Monday- Anything goes Linky Party.
CHNC -  Christmas card not featuring Santa.
CHNC2-Anything Christmas

Thanks for dropping in you are most welcome.
