Christmas at My Mum's Craft Shop

Morning all! :) We're even CLOSER to the big man in red arriving than we were this time last week, excited?! Heh!  Along those lines, I thought I'd share this gorgeous little Wryn who's kinda dressed up like a little girly Santa!! 

It's my turn to share some inspiration for My Mum's Craft Shop - this week the girls are doing CHRISTMAS. 

I decided to use Wryn from the Winter Friends set by Tiddly Inks.

I done a little selective stamping and drop the lovely podgy snowman - he wasn't really what I was after for this card! ;) I coloured Wryn up in red and black with my ProMarkers.

The papers are from the new Echo Park - 'tis the Season pack. So pretty. I love the contrast of the distressed blacks against the traditional reds and greens. Very unusual. If you haven't got your hands on this pack I highly recommend you do so, even if you have to wait for next years cards before you can use it! ;)

I added some goooooooooorgeous red saddle stitch grosgrain ribbon. Lemme tell you about this ribbon!! The top and bottom of it is - I've been waiting all my life for some like this! LOL!! I can't find this stuff A-N-Y-W-H-E-R-E. Me and Mother Goose went shopping the other day.. she wanted some PJs - in short.. I made her buy some she didn't really want - because they were wrapped with this ribbon! LOL! As soon as I got home I just KNEW I had to use it on a card. Wanna know the best part? I think I've enough left over to decorate another card. Yippeeee!!

So.. what else.. I added some green paper flowers, some die cut vellum snowflakes - I used my Die-Namics Let it Snowflake dies.. a little striped red button from Kitty's new line aaaaaaaand.. some red Hobby House rhinestones here and there.

EDITED TO ADD: I'd love, love, love to enter this into the Tiddly Inks Holiday Challenge.

A cute little Christmas card with the traditional reds and greens, but a little bit of black thrown in to mix things up a little!! Thank you for stopping by today!! xo
