Too late for the Challenge

Evening Everyone,
Oh well what's that they say about the best laid plans........
Seriously there needs to be at least 36 hours in a day if I have any chance of getting everything done that I need to do.
I keep a note book by me at work so that I can jot down any ideas I have or make lists to remind myself of things that I need to do. The trouble is the lists just seem to get longer and longer without anything ever getting crossed off lol.
With all of that in mind this card which was made using the lovely sketch over at 52(Christmas) Card Throwdown, just didn't get posted in time to enter the challenge. Oh well never mind, I enjoyed making it anyway.
Once again I have used pieces from my Christmas bits box. This time it is a lovely Magenta image which has been stamped and embossed and sponged with dye based inks.
There is also a bit of bleach, some crystal embossing powder and some bling.
The background papers are from my stash.
This second card is one that I made some time ago, but which never got sent so it has been added to my tally for this year. The background for the main stamped image has been made by spritzing Coffee onto white card stock.
I have also used coffee to colour the holly leaves, as well as some distress inks.
The background paper and ribbon are from my stash.
I am very behind in making any Christmas cards this month, I had better get a move on, although this weekend I have another Valentines card to make, and a birthday card for my Boss's daughter as well as a class to teach.
No rest for the wicked lol.
