Pine Cones - Christmas....

Well this was supposed to be a very quick CAS card!! but it was one of those days! and so many things went wrong with it that I had to cover up all my mistakes with embellies!! LOL but... after a whole afternoon of faffing about and changing things... I finally got it finished!! 

Embossing Folders: The Snowman and Powdered Sugar & Snow Globe
Nailheads: JosyRose
Sentiment: added from computer

Colouring Medium: Copics and Promarkers

I would like to enter the following Challenges:-

Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge - 'Embossing with Ribbon'
Simon Says - 'Anything Goes'
Paper Crafting Journey - 'Use a Sentiment'
Christmas Stampin' - 'Anything Goes' 
Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas - 'Ribbons and Bows' 
Stampin' For the Weekend - 'Die Cuts and/or Punches' 
CHNC Extra Challenge - Anything Goes Christmas - April 

Well I didn't have a very productive day crafting... but at least I got this card finished!... then watched Dr Who and Game of Thrones with my daughter... so had a nice day but I'm really tired now!!  I think I will have to leave the rest of my jobs until tomorrow...  ;-)
 hope you are all having a lovely weekend!
I will catch up with you all soon....
Love and Hugs
