Happy Christmas Gramps! Papertake Weekly Challenge

I am in keep myself busy mode so thought I would make a start on my special Christmas cards, you know Hubby, Mum, Dad etc etc The first is for Gramps he is 487 well okay not that old but he is 94 and so a special card is in order! I have used this fanfabbytastic 2nd sketch from Dawny at Papertake Weekly I love the simplicity of it......it's so me! I have used a very special Penny Black stamp called "Especially for You" I saw this ages ago and tried to get hold of it but couldn't then I kinda forgot all about it! Then I saw it at the weekend whilst having a quick visit to a crafting club that is run by some friends of mine. To cut a long (and personal) story short I am now the proud owner of the stamp and it will always remain extra special! Thanks girls xxx

I have coloured it in using my water colour pencils and have added some glitter touches to the wrapping paper and the berries! I have used Doodlebug mini rub ons to add "Gramps" to the tag and have punched out holly for the corners. So a super simple one but I am really pleased with the result.

Still nothing to report xxx
