77 Days til the Jolly Fat Man gets here!!

So - where did this year go??? Only 77 days left til Christmas. Last Christmas feels like yesterday!

I really need to get my skates on shopping wise, hate the stress of last minute shopping.

Here is a wee Christmas card that I finished off today, after a wee jaunt to a car boot where I picked up a 3D frame for 50p :o) - not much else took my fancy, but the frame was a bargain!

The image is from Di's Digis, they have some really cute Christmas images over there, and the sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps. We also have a Christmas Challenge on over at The Crazy Challenge, where you have to use no red or green, so why don't you pop over and have a go - you might even be lucky enough to win a wee prize.

A few close up images of the above card:

Image: Di's Digis
Sentiment: Whimsy Stamps, cut with Ticket Die from Whimsy
Medium: Promarkers and Dusty Concord Distress Ink
Papers: Forever Friends & CS from stash
Embellishments: Roses, carnation and metal corner - Wild Orchid Crafts; heather, ribbon, bling and crystal stems from stash, CS punched with Martha Stewart Bubble edge punch.
