Molly with a lantern

Evening all, thanks for popping by.
Just looked out of the window and there is the most glorious sunset tonight. It's been a pretty good day here today, hopefully the really bad weather has passed for a while. Hubby has been cutting down an old hawthorn in our top hedge today. The hedge is very old and forms the parish boundary so the trees are somewhat veteran in status and quite brittle. The hellish winds of last week took their toll and one crashed onto the fence so it had to come out. Hopefully it will regrow from the base if the pesky rabbits leave it alone.

Now for today's card. I haven't been crafting much these last couple of days as I have made and written most of my Christmas cards but I'm off to visit an old friend for a chat and needed one for her. Chris is really into red so that was the hook as well as the Sketch and Stash sketch for this fortnight.

The image is from Molly Bloom and I coloured it using Copics, reds and beiges. The papers I have used before but I like the feel of them with the reds and neutral theme. The base card was from a 12" sheet of Bazzil craft card. The snowflake edge punch is from Martha Stewart, as is the small snowflake. The large one is from Cuttlebug. The greeting is from LOTV and is mounted on a Spellbinders Lacey Circle. The card candy is from Craftwork cards and the doily die from Magnolia. Lace from the stash.

I shall enter it in the following challenges:-
