PTW GDT Last christmas and creative card crew xmas lights

Hey there everyone, firstly I apologise for my lack of posting, this close to chrismas things begin to get super busy around here and then to top that I seem to have picked up this vomiting bug from my kiddies! Yesterday was a total washout for me spending it mostly asleep on my sofa so I hope that today may bring me a better day, we shall see!
I also want to thank those of you who commented on my browser and blogger problems yesterday. It seems that I will prob still use google chrome for most things but if I need to edit any sidebar links I will have to use firefox (I have given up on IE altogether!)
I have been a bit sneaky this wk and combined some DT work as I am lacking so badly in time! Over at Creative card crew we have the theme of christmas lights sponsored by the lovely Robyns fetish and the theme at Papertake weekly is Last Christmas (and yes this was the last xmas card I made this year!).

My papers here are from the fab Robyns fetish, there are a whole rage of these and they are fabulous! With smas songs and presents for backgrounds, they really are lovely. My adorable Tilda is from the sweet christmas range and was just perfect for the lights theme with her cute candle.My lace, wooden reindeer and flowers are WOC with a few local craft shop flowers popped in too. My cheesecloth and pearls are from stash. I chose not to use a sentiment as I didn't want to detract from the lyrical paper.

My darling image has been coloured with prisma pencils and I have added some liquid pearls and stickl sparkle to her white trimming of her hat. I have edged the image, my nesties die cut and all my paper edges with white acrylic paint and some snowtex. My reindeer was painted with white paint and edged in stormy sky distress ink. All the edges have been machine stitched.
I do hope you will join in these fab challenges! Also don't forget to check out the rest of the brilliant teams creations!
I'm a bit behind on the challenge front as I have just not been keeping up but here goes... I woud like to enter this into Crafty boots christmas, Magnolia stamp lovers winter wonderland, OSAAT anything goes,  Catch the bug baby it's cold outside, Crafty calendar cold and frosty,  Dis digi designs christmas,  Fairy fun friday xmas no red or green,  glitter geeks anything goes, Just magnolia and Hanglar white plus 1,  4 crafty chicks christmas,  Delightful anything goes and DYSU winter.

Hugs to you all
