A Bit of A Punch Up!

Good Morning Campers!
It's Sunday & I'm finally starting to get over the nasty icky cold that 
my dearly beloved hubby so kindly shared with me!
It is of course time for a new challenge at The Crafty Pad
This week for Challenge #150 the theme is
We want to see at least three punched shapes on your project!
Here's my card, a simple little affair!

The team were give the cute Rodney & Robin Image to work with!
I chose to make a side stepper card this time!
It's ages since I made on of these!
The image was coloured with Promarkers &
I added some accents with Glamour Dust 
(Rodney's nose! Remind you of anyone???)
& a white gel pen!
I added loads of little punched snowflakes & 3 punched Christmas trees!
The only other Christmassy punch I possess was a snowman & I 
just couldn't find anywhere suitable for him on my card! lol
I used 3 colours of bakers twine at the bottom & added
a little bow of each colour

I also used one of Debbie's fabby Sentiment Tickets 
which also happened to feature the same little Robin!

Here are my trees! I added a little self adhesive gem to each one!
Thanks so much for dropping in! I hope you like it!
I hope you can find the time at this busy time of year to join us!
