Getting ready for Christmas :D

Well good evening everyone!  2 post in one day pretty good no?!?  I've been meaning to start creating some Christmas card (if I want to send home made one this year) and I decided to use the opportunity to play in brand new challenges as the good stepping stone to do just that.

So I got my box of Christmas paper and stamp out and decided to play.  Last winter I purchased a bunch of stamps from Whipper Snapper (just love those sweet images) but I had not yet inked them.  So this is my 1st time with them.

Here's the look at the card:
I used paper from My mind's eye called Merry Christmas.  I used label 1 and grommet tag as die cuts.

I colored the wonderful image with my copics and added some stickles on the hat:

I used a MS punch to cut out snowflakes out of shiny DCWV cardstock and used Robin's Nest Dew drop in metallic red to put on top on them:
And I just looove that sentiment :D  I think it's so fun with this wonderful image:

I'm entering my card in the following challenges:
  1. Tabithas kitchen - Christmas
  2. Created with love challenges - Christmas
  3. Christmas card challenges - use something new (well the stamps were brand new :D)
  4. Patties creations challenge - animal or insect
  5. My mums craft shop challenges - Christmas
  6. Just keep on creating - Christmas

So YAY for me one down and tons more to go LOL... I thought I had so much time... now I'm not so sure anymore.
