1st xmas card!!

cor ~terrible picture ~sorry about that!! ~mmmmmmm soft focus!!!:~)
no you are not seeing things it is my first xmas card for 2009 ~after the panic for last xmas ~vicky may and myself have set ourselves the challenge of one xmas card a week ~so i`m afraid you will have to look at some xmas cards on my blog once a week!!
used the fab sketch on christmas and birthday card challenge, and also followed the challenge over on xmas all year round, the theme being to use "red and green, plus a stamped on sentiment"
used magnolia large xmas present stamp, papermania papers, cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder, see d`s wording stamp, vellum and gems from my stash.
hope you all have a wonderful weekend , keep warm ~it`s so cold here this morning!! #hope to stay in and do some crafting ~although the house work is calling. byeeeeeeeeeee for now xx

Hi Vanessa,

I lvoe your card, even if the picture is terrible.
I also had to finish about 20 cards in the last month and was completely stressed out because of it, so good it's a good thing to start early with your x-mas cards.

thanks for joining the JCBC.
