Christmas Has Come Early!!!

Hi all you lovely bloggers.
Also, welcome to my lovely new follower, Debs.
Thank you for taking the time to join me.
I will of course return the compliment.
 
Well it's nearly here, Christmas that is, in the UK.
 
This is my last Christmas card I made, for our Granddaughter.
 
I cheated and used an image from one of the Lili Of The Valley pads.
She is so beautiful and I just had to add a bit of glitter.
 
The backing paper, was from a Forever Friends paper pad, I bought at Ally Pally.
Just added a dot of Stickles on the snowflakes and ran a silver pen around the edges.
 
The snowflakes are from a Spellbinder die and I put three together.
You can't tell from the picture, but they were cut from glitter paper.
 
I have some exciting news to tell you. I have received an early Christmas present!!
 
I have been asked by the lovely Lynsey, to join the DT,
 on the Winter Wonderland challenge blog.
 
How exciting is that?!!!
 
Of course I had to spend a few days to think about it....NOT!!
A wonderful start to 2015.
 
I wanted to add the banner onto my blog, but having a problem at the moment.
 
 
I would like to wish, all of the lovely people that visit my blog, including the ones who don't leave me a message (maybe you will next year!),
a Wonderful and Happy Christmas
and a
Brilliant Crafting, Happy New Year!
 
Sending you all the biggest of hugs available,
 
Carolxxxxxxx
