Good afternoon peeps and bloggers out there!  I'm posting my latest DT card for CCAYR and this month our theme is A Country Christmas.   I thought of this as being kraft card, tartan paper and polka dot poinsettias!  You will all have your own interpretations of course, what about gingerbread peeps and gingham?  

My stamps are from Tatty Twinkles, I was just going to use Tatty Santa at first but then decided to add the little cat.   Funnily enough that's how Donny looks at me just before he falls over wanting a scratch and tickle - mind you he would never ever let me put those Christmas decorations on him!  I would probably be minus a few digits!
