Jingle Belles ...Hybrid

It's glorious weather here in the UK ... 
Yesterday we drove out to the countryside and had lunch outdoors surrounded by fields and flowers ... horses were grazing and spring lambs were leaping around ... It was beautiful! 
I wore a proper shoe for the first time in ages ... the consultant says it will take 12 months for my bones to get to full strength ... providing I follow the rules, use my crutch for now and not put too much pressure on my foot ... Hopefully I can wean myself off the crutch in the next few months ...


I should be outside making the most of the sunshine but I decided to get my card done for this weeks challenge at Jingle Belles ... This week we are challenge to make either a full digital card or a hybrid ... As the sponsors are Robyn's Fetish Digitals Stamps and More  who have donated a free digital for anyone who wants to use it and there's a prize up for grabs this week too ...
I did a hybrid ... using some red paper from my scraps ... but the main focus is a digital text paper by Jen Allyson ... on which I layered a digital stamp from HA ... "Seasons Greeting Collage"


I coloured the holly leaves and berries with Promarkers and added a little sparkle...
A few embellishments ... ( a ribbon, some berries and a handmade by me crocheted heart) and it's done .. well it wasn't really done quickly .. I sort of lost my mojo along the way ... Maybe a little more sunshine will re-charge me ...

Have a lovely Sunday and remember as well as this challenge you still have time to enter the challenge at CCCB and the challenge at Pixie Dust Paperie too 

Till soon
