I can't believe it but thanks to some of the challenges I have made my first 2 Christmas cards. What a great excuse to use my new SN stamp. This one is for Just Christmas and Birthday Cards who supplied the sketch, Winter Wonderland for their Blue Christmas challenge and Creative Card Crew for Whatever the weather. Thanks all for inspiring me to start my Christmas cards really early this year.

Stamp - Sugar Nellie Hug in a Mug
Coloured with Letraset Promarkers
Paper - free from mag and Forever Friends
Die cuts - Nestability
Embellishments - snowflake sequins from Paperchase, spotted snowflakes from America
Ribbon - Anita's sticky ribbon
