Crafting for all seasons challenge - stitching real or faux

Morning all

Friday again don't know where the week has gone it goes so quickly.   A quick reminder that we are halfway through this fortnight's challenge over on Friday Sketch Challenge so why not pop over and take a look at the DT's wonderful creations and enter the challenge yourself, you never know you might just win a fantastic prize.

My card today is one I started last night and then took apart as the image I originally used just did not look right but this little beauty is from Pink Gems and she is gorgeous.  I have used papers from stash please don't ask where I got them from because I have had them for years.  My little Dear Santa Tag was computer generated as was the sentiment.   I would like to enter this card into Crafting for all seasons where the theme is stitching real or faux and as my stitching on card looks awful think I need a little bit more practice.  I decided to go with faux.

Toby our little darling (monster) has gone on an adventure, I can hear the birds going mad in the trees in the bank at the back here so he is obviously up there somewhere will go and try and coax him in with some food.  He has still not mastered the cat flap so I am sitting with the door to the garden open which is right next to my craft room oooh the draft sooo cold.

I will be back shortly to do a bit of blog hopping before starting on my next card using the image that I was going to use on the card above.

Love to all
