My card today is another 12" x 6" the red base card is Hunkydory topped with torn white vellum, I have used several die cuts the circle is in white, the Tonic Snowflakes have been die cut in both red mirror card and gold vellum, I have added some natural fibres for a bird nest to which I added some white frosted berries, I used a die cut bird house then used my SU punch for the bird both I have distressed with TH Vintage Photo ink, I went to town with a die cut Poinsettia, white flower sprays, carnations and roses, frosted berries, glass berries, lots of glitter, snow and ice, red bow, holly, white pom poms, sentiment banner and gold star I think that is about it........this card is for my mum.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

I do apologise for not being around but I have had a few problems the main one being my central heating I had to call the engineer out and it seems the pump has gone, I have had to make some hard decisions and have decided to wait until the New Year to have one fitted due to the cost, I have some oil radiators which should keep the house warm over Christmas.
I want to thank you all for taking time out of your busy schedules to come and visit and for leaving me a comment please forgive me for my lack of visiting.
I have my mum with me this weekend as James is going away for a few days so she is going to keep me company, she will be happy though as I have iced my cakes and she loves Christmas cake, lol. I will try to visit you all as soon as I can so please bear with me,

A gorgeous card Lorraine, so many beautiful details and fabulous design.
I'm sorry to hear about your heating, I hope you manage to keep warm - it's so warm down here we have daffodils in flower at the bottom of our garden, they must think it's spring!
Take care and enjoy the weekend with your Mum.

Wow another gorgeous 12 x 6 card, you have decorated this beautifully with so many gorgeous elements. I think I would find the size of this a bit daunting to complete.
