Hi folks,

Well, it really does look as though it is goodbye to the Summer we did not really get this year in the UK, it has a really nice Autumn feel to it now, and we are getting some sunshine along the way, thank goodness.  It will soon be Winter (not looking forward to that so much!) and it is a Wintery Christmas card I have to share today.

I have used what has to be one of my favourite Wintery Christmassy stamps from Magnolia.  How could we ever pick just one favourite!

Die-cuts:  Memory Box
Image:  Magnolia Snowman (coloured with Copics and Promarkers)
Cheesecloth and pearls from EBay
Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts
Ribbon, pom poms and lace purchased locally
Machine Stitching
I think the papers were from a  Marianne Creatables pack?

 I would like to enter this into the following Challenges:

Totally Papercrafts Challenge - Favourite stamp
Deep Ocean challenge - Goodbye Summer
Crafty Cardmakers challenge - Lace and Stitching

As always, thanks for looking,
