The 1st September bought with it rain and wind so I felt it was a good time to start on this years Christmas cards. With so many to make I decided to get an early start on them this year instead of the usual rushed job the week before Christmas. Its not like me to be organised so I can still see the rush happening, especially as I have so many new stamps that have yet to see ink that are not for Christmas, I must admit to a bit of a spending spree of late, there have been some great sales on so it would have been rude not to have bought any! The papers are by Papermania and are a change from the green and red traditional Christmas colours, I love the rich gold and blue and think it still has a festive feel but with a modern twist. The cute mouse stamp used in this card is from Elzybells and is coloured with Copics. The flowers are a mix of Prima and Papermania and the snowflake is a dress it up button. Fingers crossed I can keep up with this being organised lark, though I very much doubt it!
