Xmas card #01 !!!!!

Ha, yes you read that right!  Now that I don't have to make Christmas cards, I find myself missing my snowflakes and sparkle!

I'd been trying to get my mitts on these MFT stamps before Christmas but couldn't find them in stock, but sure they will be handy for next year's cards.  Usual statement follows ..... I'm not going to leave everything till the last minute this year blah blah blah ;)
We'll see!

Coloured with watercolour pencils, stickles added to the reindeer's nose, and Santa's buckle and hat.  Paper Smooches snowflake dies double mounted so they stood out a bit, and some bling added to the centre.  Still nice and flat though for postage :)

Hope you'll stop by tomorrow if you get a chance ... there's some High Hopes candy to be won!
