Anything goes at Sweet Stampin'

Well, that's it...Christmas over for another year...all That preparation and anticipation and it's over in a flash, still it's all worth it when you get to spend time with your loved ones! It was extra special this year being Emily's first Christmas there's something so wonderful about having a baby around at this time of year! I did get a bit told off for spoiling the granddaughters but that's what they're for!!!:)
 I hope everyone else had a magical Christmas too!
I'm a bit late posting my DT card for Sweet Stampin', amongst all the other lovely gifts I received Santa (or some other germ -ridden person) gave me a head cold! So I'm feeling woolly and slow and didn't get up 'til late!
The challenge this week is 'Anything goes' so as long as you include some stamping you can enter anything you choose! There's a prize of a £15 voucher from our very generous sponsor Crafty Devils for the lucky winner!
For my card I used this very beautiful Fairy Tangle image by Norma J Burnell.
So much fun to colour! I so enjoyed not making a Christmas card!
Thanks for visiting and all the wonderful and encouraging comments you have left for me over the past year. I wish you all a happy and healthy 2015

Popped in to comment on your most recent creation and happened to see this beauty. Had you not said it was fun to color it could be mistaken for a precolored image. Absolutely gorgeous. A spectacular card to say the least. - Jim
