11 Pipers Piping

Hi everyone,
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.
I've neglected my blog over the last week
...such a busy time of year for us all so just wanted to pop in and say hi. 
We had a lovely holiday with the family and were fortunate enough
to only experience a 5 hr. power outage
after the severe ice storm that blew thru prior to Christmas. 

I've another Christmas card to show you using  Eleven Pipers Piping from Delicious Doodles
This is my first time making a 6x6 front step card. 
 I cased a beautiful card that Craftdee Donna made here
and used a great tutorial that she mentioned done by
the fabulous Norma that can be found here.
Plaid paper is from Crate Paper - Bundled up
Real Red from SU
Green from my stash
SB Classic Frame

I would like to enter the following challenges:
Di's Digi - Anything Christmas
Sweet Pea Stampers - Christmas/New Year
Stampin for the Weekend - Anything Goes

This is another of your amazing cards Pat, I love it.

Hope you are back to feeling a bit warmer after your ice storm. Glaaaaad it was "only" 5 hours.

We have had flooding in the UK and some people have been without power for a few days, poor things.
