Christmas Early - well not yet anyway

Yes I know I said I would try and get a head start on the Christmas cards this year.  Well so far this is all I've managed. My new Christmas ornaments stamp set from Waltzing Mouse Stamps and the spellbinders die which it complements came during the school holidays but so far this is all I have managed.
I had an extra piece of alcohol inked background lying on my desk and I couldn't resist having a go - can't say I'm disappointed, I'm looking forward to putting this into a card or maybe I'll just hang it on the tree come December.
Waltzing Mouse has a Christmas Challenge each month and I'm looking forward to joining in the fun soon.
The solid design of this stamp is not ideal with an alcohol inked background which has a mixative in it (in this case pearl) as the mixative tends to resist the ink as you can see.  I don't mind the effect it gives but you may prefer a crisper image.
