It's a Spotty, Dotty Christmas

Afternoon Ladies,
Sorry I've been missing for a few days.
Well Christmas has finally arrived!!!
Every year my Mum makes us up a little box for Christmas. It's filled with homemade goodies like flapjacks and preserves. So far this year every time I have seen Mum either she has forgotton to give it to us or we have left it behind when we leave!!
So Christmas finally arrived last Saturday at Mum's birthday party. She has obviously given up on her usual flapjacks - she probably got fed up and ate them herself - the kids will be disappointed. Still maybe next time we can get her over for the day she will bake some with them. I know they would love it, and she really does make the most amazing flapjacks. May be it's no bad thing that she left them out this time - better for the hips lol.
Anyway all my rambling links me to the card that I am sharing with you.
It was one of the cards that I made for Barbara for her August TV show. It features a very traditional stamp combo, but I think that the layout is a little less so.
I thought that it might fit with the challenge over at Ooh La La Creations where they are looking for Spots and Dots.
I have stamped the text onto a piece of handmade background paper which has been punched at the corners.
The Nativity is stamped and embossed on blue card and then cut out using a circular Nestie, as are all the other circles.
They have been embossed on the back over a pergamano mat and then added to the card using silcone glue to keep the dimension.
This may not be particularly traditional Christmas colours but I rather liked it, hope you do too.
Hope you are having a good weekend.
Love and hugs
