Well its the 18th December
I am totally not ready for Christmas and in some ways wish it was over already!

At As You Like It challenge this is our last challenge before Christmas 
we have a great theme this time
Favourite Christmas Image (& why)
and the sponsor is Care2Stamp

My favourite stamp this year is this Robin stamp from Woodware
there are so many opportunities with it and its a lovely shape robin too.
For my card I wanted to keep it black and white tones so I thought I would do my doodling again.. then it looked a little flat so I decided to do some shading too, adding a little stickles and some glossy accents, I am really happy with this card and think I will be using this stamp a lot next year too!

Here are a few challenges I was inspired to play:

Clear It Out - Anything Goes Stash: stickles, fine liner pen & glossy accents
Creative Card Crew - Anything Goes
Holly Jolly Christmas - Anything Goes
Loves Rubber Stamps - Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly - Last Christmas
Sweet Stamps - Non Traditional Christmas Colors
Stamp and Create - Christmas
Pile It On - Anything Goes Christmas/Holidays
Glitter n Sparkle - Glittery, Sparkly Christmas

Hugs me
