Christmas shopping

No don't worry I haven't started my Christmas shopping yet, lol! I ordered 3 of the new LOTV stamps, 2 of them Christmas ones and they were waiting for me when I got home from work today. I just couldn't wait to use one and here she is, isn't she fab.
I used glitter flocking for her fur and the snow at their feet and used some of my last BG Eskimo Kisses papers from last Christmas. I tried really hard with distressing the edges, before inking them all and glittering some of them. What a lovely mess I made. The snowflakes were made with an MS punch with pearls added. I hoped making a Christmas card would cool me down as it is very hot and humid here but it hasn't helped , maybe some ice cream will work.

Marianne I love this card. That paper that you used is sooo perfect I must say for that beautifully coloured image! I just got really weak and ordered some of these Christmas images too. I was so sad one of my favourites was sold out. Do you have the one with the little girl holding the candle...side profile! I love that one! Have a great weekend!
