It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas...

Hello!!!

I thought I'd share yet another Chistmas card today, another one using one of the many Lili of the Valley images in my collection

I've had a count up of the number of cards I need and I will probably still be going in February at this rate!  I think I'm going to have to do a few quick and simple ones to bump up the numbers!


I used some of the lush papers I got from Live and Love Crafts, the lace is from there too - it's stunning, it took me quite a while to cut this one up!  The charms, brads, pins and flowers are all from my stash, and the snowflake die cut in the corners is by Memory Box

The sentiment (magazine freebie) has been stamped on a scrap of paper before being stuck to some chipboard, then die cut with a Sizzix die and distressed to show some of the chipboard, pinning it onto the card with a brad


I coloured these cute little pengiuns up with my copics, then spread some snow-tex around the base of the igloo, then shook glitter over it while still wet.  I'm not totally sure I like the effect, but maybe I just need a bit more practice!


I decorated the inside with more of the same papers, and some assorted stamps


Hope you like it, thanks for stopping by
