Whimsy Berry

Hello my lovely crafty friends, hope you are all well and keeping warm and dry. Sorry if l have not visited over the last few days - life has taken over my crafting a bit, although l have done some catching up with some of you.
We have been to visit our new grandson today and he is absolutely gorgeous with lots of thick black hair, l could easily have sneaked him in my bag and brought him home.  Our christmas dinner went well on sunday and the turkey soup is almost finished, l am pleased to say the turkey fit in the oven and cooked beautifully.
Onto the card - l made this one a couple of weeks back using my favourite christmas stamp - Berry by Whimsy, l just love colouring this image. I have added white puff embossing powder randomly to the image to give the effect of snow and a bit of white paint to the holly leaves. I hope you like it.
