Christmas Wishes

Hi guys,
hope your all well, been a feeling a little off myself these last few days but ok now lol,
I'm blaming it on the weather!
My turn again for The Stamp Basket
and this week we're still in the Christmas Fortnight so here's my card

Hokey Pokey ( isn't she adorable) is coloured with my distress re-inkers as is the background and I've used snow white pearls on her dress and hat,
The image can be coloured with a head band across her hair but thought I'd do it as a hat lol,

The gorgeous Memory Box  flowering Christmas Tree I cut using white card then coloured it with a few different colours to get a different effect, 
I distressed  the paper edges too, I used to do this all the time then stopped but recently I have started doing it again, my fingers aren't too happy but hey! lol
