First Christmas card for this year


I thought I had better make a start as I am always on the last minute with Christmas,I saw a simple sketch and thought it would make a good start.
After getting my washing out in the sunshine (what is this weather going to do?)I put Mum's woollen blanket on her bed on Tuesday and now they are saying we are going back to temps of 25%!.... I digress lol.... I sat down to make my card. Hopefully, I will have time later to make a get well card for Aunty Sue, who a lot of you know..... she is having another big operation this afternoon, to finish off the one she had last year.Unfortunately, this means she will miss the craft show in Leigh at the beginning of October, I will try to spend her money for her though like I did last year! lol

Anyway, on to my card

White card stock run through cuttlebug snowflake folder
papers from Leigh craft show (no name)
ImageI think is LOTV (thanks Jules)
Coloured with promarkers
Lashings of glitter
MS snowflake punch
tiny crystals flower centres from Mei flower
no name on sentiment

I am entering the following challenges;
