Lots of Holly

Glad to say my recovery is going well now have begun driving again and
that is fine until I have to back out of a parking spot so looking for lots of easy parking.
It is good to be feeling human again.

This is the week 52CCT have a sketch to follow.
However I am never sure whether I will follow closely or go off on a tangent
I just go where my card takes me.

As you see have used lots of Holly today.  The stamp is an old PSX one from 1999
and one of my favorites though it hasn't been used for a long time now.
It always stamps up so beautifully, have coloured with copics and then
used dimensional magic. 
 The very tiny holly stamp was from
Amazing creations don't think the company still exsists.
I coloured that with gel pens as without colour they were lost
The greeting is from LOTV.
Don't know where the holly paper came from but have been saving
this up for a while, now only have scraps left. 

Am entering this in 

Thank you for dropping by and for all your kind comments.
