Christmas Kickstart Challenge #36 - Christmas Birds

Hi there, welcome to another Christmas Kickstart Challenge. Thanks to all of you who played along  with Challenge #35 - your entries are all just stunning!

It's new challenge time and we have a new elf: meet Marcia from Marcia's Stampin' Pad! 
Marcia is one of my newer stamping friends, who I've met through Christmas Kickstart. I'm a big fan of her cards and knew I wanted to invite her to don the elf hat and inspire us with her work.

"Hi there, my name is Marcia and I've been stamping for over 20 years now.  I am a total Christmas girl, so when Jo asked me to be a guest elf, I was delighted to say "YES"!  My style is mostly CAS, but I honestly don't think there's a style or stamp that I don't love!   Hope you'll join Jo and I and get those Christmas cards started...it will be here before we know it!"

It's great to have you here, Marcia, love your gorgeous card for our theme and your beautiful smile!

Challenge #36 - Christmas Birds

Yes, we're all about our feathered friends for the next fortnight. Cardinal birds, robins, owls, penguins, doves and even the odd flamingo or two - they're good for this challenge!

You can find all the details for Marcia's beautiful card right here at her blog.

Here's my card - rather a different style for me, but I enjoyed stretching myself a little.

Rudolph is here again with another Random Raffle prize. This time he's chosen a die and sentiment combo - great choice Rudolph!
