CHNC challenge 65: home for Christmas

Saturday comes round so quickly ... it doesn't seem a week since the last challenge was launched on my CHNC blog and here we are with another new one. Today's challenge 65 is 'home for Christmas' - to feature a house or part of a home - you might want to show a fireside scene, a window scene ... anything that relates to house or home.

I've based my card on the sketch for Sunday sketch & stamp 98:

I used an offcut of Bo Bunny 'tis the season fa la la for the background, a piece of recycled card from a Christmas cracker from the year before last (yes, I've still got some - lol!) and a circle of card that was originally cut on my cricut for another card, but I didn't use it at the time because it was the wrong size.  I have used an image I bought from The Crafty Pad (this week's sponsors) called 'snowglobe', which was ready coloured and I just added the text digitally before printing out, adding some crystal ice stickles to the snow, some habico gems and a sentiment. No new papers were cut for this card, so it's another one for Pixie's crafty snippets 12.

This is also for:
