The Next Level - Stairstep card

Good morning everyone.... quick post for today, i can't usually get near the pc on a weekend so just taking advantage at the moment.
Hereis my entry to the Next Level Challenge they had two options this week i chose the stair step card, wasn't sure what to do after i saw all the fab DT cards, mine's not on the same level as those but the kids loved it and i had fun.

T he papers are some i had left over from last year so not sure what they are and the cute polar bear stamps are from Woodware. The flowers are from my stash the pearls are from Hobbycraft, the snowflake punch is also Woodware and then just added loads of ice stickles.
Hope you like my entry i will do a spot of hopping shortly, thankyou so much for visiting and thankyou for all your lovely comments, have a great weekend.....

Hi there everyone yep I know i'm completly mad but i thought i would set up another blog especially for that festive time, it keeps my other blog from getting cluttered with too many things and for my lovely visiters who don't want to look at chrismas stuff yet. I am trying to be a bit more organized this year and i am still quite new to blogging.
So thankyou for reading and putting up with me please pop yourself on my follow list and lets see what we can create...
