My First Christmas Card of the Year!

Good morning everyone,

I hope you are all well. After today I have two and a half days left of school before we break up for the summer holidays yay!! A groups of us are off to London straight from school today to wander around the sights, a trip on the  London Eye and have cocktails and dinner, it should be a fab evening!

This morning, I am showcasing a card for the new challenge at Fussy and Fancy. It is not my teams turn to post, but I couldn't resist joining in with Norma's challenge:

Christmas in July

This is my first Christmas make of the year, I am a bit behind with making Christmas Cards, I normally start in June, but hopefully over the summer I will be able to make lots.

I have coloured up Tilda with Winter Skates and masked her with the Winter Bench stamp. I  bought some snowballs from Anna Marie Crafts as I thought they be fab in a shaker card.

The eight point, skates, tag and ice crystals are all Joy dies from Noor Design U.K. I have added some Twinklets to the ice crystals to give them a lovely icy look.The ivy is a Lea'bilities die.

The lace and pom pom trim are from the Ribbon Girl.

DI list:
Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick
Hair: Walnut Stain, Antique Linen
Trousers, Scarf: Hickory Smoke
Ice Skates, Jumper and Hat: Weathered Wood

We would love to see you join us in our challenge.

Have a wonderful weekend.
