Christmas in the sun!

Good afternoon one and all!

What a beautiful sunny day today!  I am currently at my mum's place sitting on the balcony in the sun!  My nephew is staying with mum all week to give my sister a break during the holidays!  I am hoping to get some time with them so we can go to the coast one day, but will see how the week goes! 

Anyway I decided to do a Christmas card even though its sunny outside!  I have used one of the new Christmas images from Pollycraft which you can get here.  Here is my card:

This is another card which was so much better in my head than the way it has turned out.  I am not sure why this is happening.  I think I have used too many snowflakes on this, but hey its done now!  I used some white flower soft for the snow and the hat which looks quite effective.  I have also used a new snowflake embossing folder for the background and my new Die-namics Snowflakes Die which I bought from Dies to Die For

Anyway, I am going to sign off now as the sun is hot and this laptop is burning on my lap!! 

Enjoy the rest of your day.
