Ho Ho Merry Christmas - MIM #119

Well, the big day is over and our eldest daughter is now married. It was an interesting service in Greek and also English - no music (which I really missed) and no wedding vows either. It took about 45 mins in which most of the congregation stood. I decided to sit after our daughter came in as I knew I would have sore feet and knees if I stood for the entire service and I wanted my Mum to sit down as well. I heard afterwards that several others sat behind me.
I've been so busy the last few days that my DT card was left right to the last moment and I'm not sure if it will be shown on the Make It Monday Blog but thought I would still share it here and encourage you to  share your lovely papercraft creations on the linky party this week.
I would like to congratulate Marie on being our featured artist this week and also Desire for being the winning commenter.
Our sponsor this week is the ever popular Bugaboo Stamps and I chose this cute image called Ava & Deacon Christmas HO HO to play with. I coloured this one up about 11:30 pm . We had some friends drop in and after they left we had a very late tea which I cooked. Adrian had been out earlier when it was actually meal time so I wasn't sure what he wanted to do meal wise.
I've just chatted to my new son-in-law and am going to go pick them up from their hotel and drop them home so will quickly share my card and my POTW
I still have to do the inside of my card and when I finish it will edit my post to share the extra pic.
Here's the card......

I am entering this into the following challenges:
Christmas Card Challenges - Week #2 ~ Die Cuts
Dream Valley Challenges - Challenge 47 ~ Christmas
Robyn's Fetish Challenges - Challenge 127 ~ Christmas Cards

We are very excited to have again our fun sponsors Bugaboo Stamps!  Everyone loves these fun and sweet digis!

Bugaboo Stamps are offering a very generous prize of winner's choice of 7 single digis!

My POTW is this beauty by Karin over at Trollkatta's Scrapping  and you can see more pics here. I chose this one I suppose because I am still in wedding mode myself and this is such an elegant card for an important day.   

Well that is all for me gotta get the car seat back into the car - strap the grandchildren in and then go to town to pick up the Newlyweds.
So it's up to you now, we are looking forward to seeing some more wonderful creations this week, those last minute Christmas cards and gifts or some of your older creations too.
