Celebrate the season.

Good morning all.
I hope you are all well.
I am in work later, quite a lot of overtime this week but i am saving it for Christmas pressies so its worth it :D
So here is my card for today and yep its my fav ever Christmas stamp again :D
I am entering my card into the following challenges:
1.As You Like It Challenge - Challenge 13 - Fav sketch and why (i love this sketch from the Papertake challenge (this is sketch 69), i love the different layers and i love how you can dress it up if you want or strip it back to the bare sketch, i use this sketch a lot, sometimes just altering the shapes slightly)
2.Crafts Too Challenge - Christmas Festivities - Week 3 - What Christmas means to you (christmas to me is family time, snuggled up in doors in the warmth, all snuggled up together watching a cheesy film or playing with a board game)
3.Fab N Funky Challenge - Challenge 190 - Distress
4.CRAFT Challenge - Challenge 230 - Recipe (1 or more diecuts, 2 or more dp`s, 3 or more embellies, glitter and bling)
5.Allsorts Challenge - Week 230 - Treemendous
6.Sweet Stampin Challenge - Wood , trees or leaves
