Hi everyone,

I cannot believe how the days are flying by and it is now under 6 weeks to Christmas.  I have been Christmas shopping today but still have my cards to make!  I am way behind this year which is so unlike me.  I am jujst not comfortable with it - It will not happen next year for sure! lol

So, here I have a Christmas card which I have made using non traditional colours.  Pink and White really are not my idea of Christmas colours at all and although I am pleased with the card I still prefer the traditional reds.  Having said that I do really like the icy blues too.

I delved into my stash for this one and have used a lovely Sarah Kay image (coloured by a friend of mine).  I used this image quite a lot last year and this one was left over all coloured up!  Nice one!  I think I have one more left to use too.  In fact it is very much a stash card, using Martha Stewart punches, poinsettias and charm from EBay, lots of Stickles, Nestabilities, doily, cheesecloth and ribbon.  The flourishes are Marianne Creatables die-cuts.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Thanks for looking,
