Another Christmas Card (at last!)

At last I have made another Christmas card, although I started the year with good intentions I think I've only made about 5 to date lol.  I made this card for Di's Digi Challenge which this time is "More than 1 Die Cut/Punch".  Di has so many gorgeous Christmas images & I just love this one which is called "Letters to Santa".  I coloured the image with ProMarkers & added some Frosted Lace Stickles to her coat & hat. The backing paper is from Trimcraft & I used Aleene's Glitter Snow for the snow (I love the texture of this).  The holly border is a Memory Box Die with gem "berries" & the "Do Not Open" stamp is from Designer Digitals & I used my circle punch.  Our fab sponsor this time is Crafty Sentiments & I do hope you can join us.

The challenges:
Christmas Cards All Year Round - Christmas Presents
Jingle Bells - Going Postal
Digi Doodle - Anything Goes
Cutie Pie - No Flowers
Tuesday Throwdown - You're a Gem
Cute Card Thursday - Christmas in September

I'm very excited cos tomorrow is my birthday & we are going to London for a couple of days & going to see Shrek the musical (I love London) though I do have loads of stuff to get finished before we go :s.  I hope you have a fabulous weekend whatever you're up to :)

21/9/12 - I've just seen that my card was featured in Jingle Bells Post with the Most :D how cool is that!
