It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas....

Woke up this morning to discover that the snow which had fallen elsewhere had decided to move out to the west and deliver a dusting here!It is only a dusting though and even though I LOVE looking at it, I have to go out today so am thankful it's not as bad as the poor old east of the country.
Sat and made a few cards yesterday - some quite simple, others like this one a wee bit loaded with embellies!
This gorgeous Sarah Kay image was given to me by Maureen - she said it was 'spare' (so undoubtedly she is soooo organised she's made all her cards - lol) - Maureen had already coloured it too - there's friends for you!!!!
I layered it onto some dark red card and used two lots of backing paper from the Xmas drawer and I have no idea who's paper it is - but it's luverly!!!
A chipboard flourish duly coloured with a promarker and a wee bit of glitter, lots of promarker coloured flowers sprinkled with some glitter and a sparkly gem middle for each finished the card. The greeting was lurking in the xmas stash drawer. I like this card - so might send it to myself! LOL
