Christmas at Sweet Stampin' September challenge

I have been such a bad bad CASSette this year and I am sooooo pleased that my teamies have been sooooo nice about it.    I've been horribly ill this week too which hasn't helped.   Hopefully, with Christmas only a terrifying 15 weeks away, I will be a good CASSette from now on or else I may have to move Christmas to January or February in order to be fully prepared for it!  

We are now having just one post each month at
Christmas at Sweet Stampin'
and this month our challenge is
Christmas Critters
We are delighted to be sponsored by 
The Hobby House
and we really want
to come and play along with us.

Best matey Julie and I went to the Sanddown craft show last weekend and I bought this cute image called "Robin" by The House of Zandra.  I coloured him with Copics, framed him in a Nestie and used American Crafts "Wonderland Collection" papers for the DPs.  My letters are cut from a DCWV stack using a long Tim Holtz die called "Stacked Words - Christmas"which I forgot that I had and which is absolutely going to get lots of use in the lead up to Christmas.   The holly sprigs are cut with a Joanna Sheen die, also purchased last weekend.    Sadly, I seem to have picked up a Monster Bug last weekend too and I have barely made it out of bed since Sunday afternoon.

We would all be very appreciative if you would share some love with my fellow CASSettes and then come and play along with us.

I am entering my card into the following challenges:  
#120 at Loves Rubber Stamps - "glitter or sparkle"
#280 "anything goes" at Creative Inspirations
September's Stamping Sensations for "Things with Wings"; and
#150 Crafts and Me "Time for Anything"

This is fabulous! I love the image and the embellishments are outstanding. The sentiment is awesome and LOVE the holly and berries. I like how you put a think line of glitter around the image area. That give it a pretty shine. I need to remember that trick. Great card! Hugs, Gail
