   I have had this set of stamps called Bah! Humbug!1 from Sheena Douglas for some time but have never got round to using them, so I thought it was about time that they saw the light of day!
   Having stamped the images I masked off the edges and dusted the top half with distress inks (dusty concord, faded jeans and black soot). The chimneys and and roof tops were coloured using Promarkers and then I removed the masking tape. I then added lots of glitter (although it doesn't  show in the photograph) to the roofs. This was then matted and layered onto navy and dark violet mirri card.
   I stamped snowflakes onto the white base card before attaching the image to it. Finally a sentiment was added.

   I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
   Penny Black and More - anything goes
   I Love Promarkers - snowflakes
   Crafty Little Fairies - Christmas in October
   Crafting Musketeers - Christmas in October
   Addicted to Stamps - Christmas is coming
   Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Extra - anything goes
