First Christmas card of 2015!


Yes I am keeping to my resolutions so far and I have therefore made my first Christmas card for 2015. They are some of my favourite cards to make so I do find it easy to make them all year round, time permitting. I bought this cute stamp just before Christmas and didn't get round to stamping him, never mind colouring him. So although he is an older stamp he is new to me.
Image - LOTV
Medium - Copics
Papers - Carta Bella Bundled Up
Die - Memory Box snowflake, Nellie Snellen oval
Ribbon - Crafty Ribbons
Other - Stickles

Challenges
Sketchy colours Great sketch
Graph'it Shiny and new 
Allsorts Cold and frosty colours 
Di's digis Winter 
We do Doobadoo Snow and frost 
CCAYR a Christmas card 
Crafty Calendar What's new (stamp) 
Sparkles Christmas a Christmas critter with a splash of glitter
Simon Says Something new (new stamp)
ABC Christmas Anything Christmas
Paper Shelter Winter blues

Far more challenges than I would normally enter but the card just fits so many of them this week.

Love the LOTV James stamps and the papers are just fab. Seems a bit strange doing Christmas cards in January but not as strange as doing them in July like we crafters usually do. Great looking card Marianne.
