My 1st Christmas card made!

I thought I'd better get a head start this year with my Christmas cards as I don't think I'll feel up to it once my Chemo starts. I should have had more done by now, but this is my first card........it's taken me days to complete!

I used this weeks sketch, #12, from the Get Sketchy blog.



Supplies used:
SU cardstock and ink - except the trees, which is Pedigree Paper.
Justrite stampers tiny letters for the greeting.
Assorted snowflake stamps from several stamp sets - some are Fiskars, I forget the others.
Cuttlebug Christmas Tree dies.
Making Memories green flower, not sure about the white one.
Ranger Frosted Lace Stickles.
Kaiser gems.
Making Memories gem brads.
Carl snowflake punch.
Nestability die.
Other - white handmade paper for the snow, unknown PP for the snowy sky b/ground, green/white/gold ribbon, snowflake eyelet.


Thanks for stopping by today!

hi Lyn!

It's a really pretty card; good on you for making a start. Now you have a proven copy hopefully you will feel on top of it to create some more. You did so good with it; the design is really very unique and the colours look fabulous. Love the dies!
