Little Christmas in September :-)

Hi all :-) I hope you are all well and looking forward to a nice relaxing weekend ,,, for those of you working  I hope you’re not TOO busy :-)

I made this card today to the Crafty ribbons Inspiration Blog, Ali, the owner of Crafty Ribbons has designed loads of gorgeous Christmas ribbons ,,, and I used one from the Little Christmas Collection, sooo cute  :)

The image is of course ,,, Pickle  from the Wild Rose Studio :-) I think he has quite a following of his own now too, he is such a cute character :-) This one is called Pickle on Igloo , how lovely to exchange pressies with the little Robin eh :-)
I coloured with Copics and inked the edges with tumbled Glass DI, I used Bazzill Peppermint card ( this is a lovely shade of red, my fave) and the papers are a free download from Summer Driggs , she has loads of gorgeous papers and asks only for a donation,,isn’t she lovely :-) Here’s a link to her site  Summertime Designs.  

Thanks for looking , I appreciate all your comments ,, LOVE to read them so please leave me one Winking smile 
If you have the time I would also appreciate it if you could pop by the Inspiration Blog too ,,,, it’s quite lonely over there Smile
