I need to apologise... 
I have been quite ill recently - had a whole week off work - 
which is not like me at all. 
So I have completely lost the plot in terms of what day we are on and 
which card I need to blog! 

This little beauty was made for my 95 year old Grandma.
I knew she would love this image:
Jolly Holly Postbox, from Artsi Doodles,
 for our "traditional colours" challenge - for Glitter n Sparkle....

I diecut "grandma"
and coloured and fussy cut around the holly postbox image. 
I paper-pieced one bird and stuck the other on 3d foam, to raise it. 
The holly and berries are also diecut.
I found the ribbon in my stash! 
Finally, i embossed the background with my snowflakes embossing folder. 

Grandma loved it!

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
