Hope you will take a moment to pop by their blogs. These ladies have some lovely cards for you to see!

My card is a fairly simple one. One that will definitely fit through the regular postage slot! The image is one that I have used before. I coloured up a bunch of them at the lake one summer. I think this is the last one of that bunch.

I used my Spellbinders Labels 2 to cut some snippets of green and white card stock, and once again cut apart one of my plaid prefolded 5 x7 cards to use for theDP. I love plaid paper and it is not often in the paper craft shops near me. I matted it with the last large snippet of Granny Apple green  I wanted a bit of a contrast and thought this bold colour did just that!
The wee sentiment is from my Wellington Bear card kit.



The image has had a random  coating of Diamond Stickles, just enough to give that Christmassy sparkle. I used Christmas Red Stickles on the holly berries...even added a few random Stickles berries to the image!




The prize this month is a choice of one of the following two dies.
1. The Grand Happy Christmas Die from Memory Box



or

2, The Vesha Ornament die from Memory Box

Image result for Vesha ornament

Mo, I'm so sorry I have been chasing my tail recently and I was so late with my card and also thought I had left a comment here but obviously looking tbrough I didn't! The DT cards are all really lovely and I adore your plaid and green as tartan is one of my Christmas favourites. I will try to do better and be more organised next month. x
