A new card at last

Well it's been a while since I posted with looking after my grandson, getting ready for birthdays and wedding anniversary I've had no time for crafting but I hope to be back to normal, well as normal as I get anyway now the birthday season is over until later in the year when it all starts again.

I made this card using a Mo Manning digital stamp, it should say Home Tweet Home on the little sign but I changed the text for a Christmas message. I coloured the image with pro markers of course, used distress ink on the background and around the shape which was cut with my nestabilities, I created the faux stitching with my Bazzil bling templates and then used a punch with border system to create the borders. I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Susie and Vikki's Christmas Club-Stitching
Bah Humbug-Punched Borders
ABC K is for Kissing

I know the birds aren't kissing but it's the best I've got so I hope it will do.
