Basic Grey - Punch It!

It's time for a new challenge over at Basic Grey challenges, and as I'm still in Christmas mode, I've made yet another to add to my growing stock!
The theme at BG is Punch It  which is nice easy one, I think, as I nearly always use some sort of punch on my cards!  For this one, the punches are a Martha Stewart punch for the snowflakes strip and a Stampin Up Bauble punch (with matching stamp) for the well, er, baubles!! And the sentiment is also a punch - also Stampin Up.
My image, isn't strictly speaking, a Christmas one, but I think she works here, maybe she got her tutu for Christmas, or she's in a Christmas show at school - The Nutcracker perhaps? - and she's the Sugar Plum Fairy!! ( I have a full back story in my mind !!)  Of course, she's another cutie from Mo Manning - Fifi - you can find her here in Mo's store.
My papers are of course, Basic Grey - Nordic Holiday and Eskimo Kisses.
If you'd like to play along with us, we have our usual fabulous sponsor with us, Simon Says Stamp.

As always, their prize is a very yummy $25 dollar voucher to spend in their on-line store!

Right, I need to go and get dressed and decide how I'm going to spend my day - to go to the Craft Barn or just stay home making more Christmas cards!!  Decisions, decisions!
