Last minute Christmas lol,

Hi Peeps,
First of all I'm sorry I've not been visiting you much, I'm full of a cold and it's making me really tired, and last night just when I thought I'd get on to my computer Kay turned up so that was that lol,
I've made my card using the go kreate circle again, don't know if I said the right circle last time, duh blame it on my cold!
Anyway I decided I liked it that much I made another using a similar design, and I've also used up scraps of Christmas paper too so it's a good job it's one of my last ones he he,

I've used one of my favourite Tildas, and I think she could be used not only at Christmas and she works so well with the circle shape, and then of course Santa Edwin, I think it looks like she's sneaking up on him, to give him a present lol,
I've stitched all my papers and the image too, first time for stitching paper in a circle, used to do round cushions at work on cloth but not paper lol, then I also distressed the edges too, not on my cushions!!!
for the background I've used antique linen DI's, then a grunge stamp and then a script stamp, looks fab but you may just be able to see it on here, if you use a magnifying glass lol,
Edwin is sat on brown thick thread which is threaded through a slit near Tildas feet so I could lap it back and tie it at the side,
Both images are coloured with Copics,
Here's a closer look of the background, still need a magnifying glass?
the sentiment stamp is coloured with antique linen, fired brick, and bushed corduroy DI's, the edge is covered with Star dust stickles, and the leaf is a McGill pine leaf punch, red gems stash.

The flowers have star dust Stickles down the veins, I've made another bow to continue the design, spellbinders tag distressed with Antique linen Di's again with grunge stamp on the edges, and a stamped greeting,
Hopefully you can make out the Platinum dots of Stickles glue I've used all the way round the outer circles, these have also been distressed,
Put this on for those of you with no Magnifying glass, lol
Edwins fur is Star dust Stickles and he's been cut out and mounted using Pin Flair glue,
