Christmas tilda - totally papercrafts

The theme on totally papercrafts this week is Christmas, gosh I am so behind with everything at present. I am busy getting ready to take a test and my brain is frazzelled. It didn't help having 3.5 hrs sleep last night due to poorly boys so I didn't manage to get commenting done and very few blog visits. I hope you like the card - hugs xxx

I also have won this

Totally Papercrafts - Stitch it

Hiya, crisp morning here where at totally papercrafts we want to see stitching on your cards.
I have used this Tilda image which I think is holly Tilda I could be wrong as it was a rak of Jayne. The paper is Basic Grey Indie bloom but doesn't it work well as Christmas Paper?

I don't play every week in WOYWW as I don't want to bore people and I can't afford to buy new stash each week. Ok my desk today, see my coffee and jam jars at the back I am trying to coordinate my stash into colours of ribbons and embellishments to make them easier to find than all mixed up. I am writting on each of the jars where I got them from so for example all ribbon girl embellishments are in one pot to make it easier when I write my posts up. See the note pads, the left is my challenge not pad that I jot down challenges on and the right is my list of stuff I write down as i do each card, I gave up doing copic numbers ages ago as I use so many! The picture on the wall is me by my youngest son which I love and of course a cup of tea on my favourite mug, Marie from the disney shop (Marie was my mothers name, so it is very special to me).
Hope everyone is well. I have comment moderation on so I can make sure I visit everyone back.
Remember the candy available at Stamp and Create - link further down on my blog.
