I made 5 Christmas cards yesterday which I was very pleased with so I don't have many more to make for this year. I seem to have images though that I haven't used yet or like this little fella, have only been used once so here is being used for a second time.
Image - LOTV
Medium - Copics
Papers - Doivecraft 12 days of Christmas
Ribbon - Crafty Ribbons
Punch - Wodware holly
Other - red liquid pearls, Viva pearl pen, Stickles, sentiment from stash, TH distress tool
