Puffin Christmas

Morning peeps.  The weather started off lovely here this morning.  I have put summer cool things on and way and behold the sun has gone in and the clouds have appeared .  TYPICAL!!!!  We are waiting for our friends to arrive as they are going on holiday and we are looking after their dog for 10 days.   It will seem strange as we have never had a dog only cats.
My card today is made with a freebie from ages ago of Karen Doodles "Puffin Christmas".  The colouring medium is Promarkers, I have also used "Crystal" Stickles.  The image has been cut and mounted using S4-114 "Standard Circles Large" and S4-115 "Petite Scalloped Circles Large" dies from Spellbinders.  The bp is a Create and Craft download.  The star ribbon trim is cut using LR0134 "Christmas Stars" die by Marianne Designs.  The gold ribbon and star brads are from my stash.

I am entering this for:- - Ch39- Bling it on Ch#43- Christmas in June - Ch#25 - Christmas Wings- Oh sugar, sorry Hazel it should have been Angel or Fairy. - Ribbons and Brads - Ch#30 - Things that Flutter - Anything Goes - Ch#24- Use a Star - Things with Wings - Ch#71- Diecuts and Punches

Thank you for looking and enjoy your Sunday.
