A Krafty Christmas

I love Wet Wet Wet - the band that is not the weather and I hope you've all done your shopping - cos if it's as bad where you are as it is here you'll all be like drowned rats by now!
I (she says smugly) have no shopping left to do - got most of the food (which in OH's eyes is the MOST important thing about Christmas- LOL) and all that's left is a few fresh bits which can be bought in the village, a quick run round with the hoover which I will be leaving till tomorrow..... and a few bits of ironing ... which I will be leaving till tomorrow.... !!

 I have had this Papermania paper and stamp for ages and each time I have gone to use it, the mojo has gone walkabout. Having invested in the Kraft card stock this year I was happy to note that the paper actually looked OK next to it! So made a few of these to send - they are relatively CAS and were quite quick to do.

I used Stazon Forest Green on the stamp and it's actually a really good colour match to the paper!
Couple of die cuts in green card to back the main stamp and the greeting and organza ribbon from my stash. 
Finished it all off with a few red pearls - well it IS Christmas after all!
