A Spoon Full of Sugar -challenge 17

'Christmas is Coming' that's our challenge this week at A Spoon Full of Sugar yes we would like you to make a christmas card simple as that! The prize this week is the cute stamp Lola with Bird and has been kindly donated by Lim.
I actually made my card originally for last weeks challenge using Nikki's sketch, then checked the upcoming challenges and realized this week was christmas so made another for that challenge. The image of Simon and Lola (always want to call these Charlie and Lola after the childrens tv characters!) isn't coloured particularly well as this was done way back in February I only started stamping in January! I made a cover for a bar of Matthews favourite chocolate for Valentine's Day and this was the image I put on the front, too cute to throw away I kept it stuck to the door of my desk, just knew it would come in handy someday. So I've used something recyled to, how good of me Lol.!!!The lovely Jacqui (Cats Whiskers) has now joined the Design Team on a permenant basis which is great, Jacqui's cards are fab if you haven't go take a look at her blog and see for yourself. Welcome to the team Jacqui :0)
Thank you to everyone who entered last weeks challenge, and look forward to seeing lots of christmassy ones this week. Have fun!
