First Christmas Card of 2012! :D


Well I've started my Christmas cards (very) early so we will see if I have enough by December (I started in January last year & it didn't make any difference lol).  

This week the Sentimental Sundays challenge is Snow, Blue +/or Glitter, I used blue & glitter.  The backing paper is from Dovecraft's "Let it Snow" pad & as you can see I've used my new trimmer with the Victorian blade again :)  The image is "Angel Girl Nativity" from Jellypark & is one of my favs.  I coloured the image with ProMarkers with Glamour Dust on her wings.  I finished the card off with a sparkly ribbon, star gem, tinsel, peel off greeting (I have hundreds of these from when I first started cardmaking - a loooong time ago, so I thought I'd better try & use some up). The Poinsettia was made using my new Spellbinders Shapabilities Layered Poinsettia dies which I love & I glittered them & added a pearl.  Ooh I forgot to say the Kraft card is digi! yes I printed it from a kit from Pink Petticoat & I am soo chuffed as I struggle to find Kraft card & now I can print it off when I like :D

I hope you will join us this week & don't forget to check out last week's New Year's Party challenge & Blog Hop winners AND the fabulous creations from the other DT members too!  (& have you seen the new look blog? It looks fab).
