A traditional Christmas at WOC

It’s Wild Orchid Challenge day and the challenge is “A traditional Christmas”, and I interpreted it by going with traditional Christmas colours by using the delish Glitz Designs Joyeux Noel.  Mmmm love that pad! 

I found this little sweetie in my ever growing pile of uninked rubber – Wee Stamps Holly by Whimsy Stamps.  Can’t believe I have neglected her for so long!
