Inspired by Funkie Junkie week 6 from the 12 tags of Christmas

Hello there! How are you? Very good I hope and keeping wrapped up in this cold snap. I can't believe all the snow that has been flying around on pictures in blogland - we've not had any yet - thank goodness! Just to report that Lucy had a great day too - she loved the canoe raft and the tree climbing and was absolutely shattered by the time she came home! So she'll sleep tonight - not sure about the other one though - she's lost her first tooth so is lying in wait for the tooth fairy I think!!!!!

Todays card is inspired by the tag here from Linda Coughlin of the thefunkiejunkie 12-tags-of-christmas challenge sponsored by the thefunkiejunkie Boutique. I was inspired by the plaid and the number , the gold bow and the red cardinals and also the tree.





The paper is from LOTV - the winter wishes pad - and the birds are cut using spellbinders dies. The trees are cut using a die'sire die and then brayered with sparkle medium (diamond) from Imagination Crafts. The numbers have been cut using a cuttlebug die set and the banner is a spellbinders die - I stamped the diecut with a script stamp.Then just added the lace.

I'd like to enter this card into the Funkie Junkie challenge week 6 thefunkiejunkie and also
