Half-way Thru' December

Yes, the 15th is here already, 10 days until Christmas, I really should think about wrapping some presents up soon!!

It's time for a reminder that this month's theme at By The Cute And Girly is Red, Blue and White, which makes a lovely theme for a Christmas card if you still have some to make (or are starting on next year's as our challenge runs right up to 31st December 2012!)

I've used one of the images from my pile of Christmas goodies from Whiff Of Joy this time.  She is coloured with Promarkers.

For the card background I've used some lovely papers that have a traditional Nordic feel.  They are by Marianne Designs and are free with issue 88 of Papercraft Essentials (along with a lovely stamp that I will hopefully be inking up within the next 10 days!)  I've made my own stamped tissue paper to layer the image on with a Donna Salazar stamp.  the sentiment is stamped straight onto the Marianne paper with some Francois Read stamps.

The lottle snowflake charm is also from Whiff Of Joy and is tied on with twine from an MME pack (the same one that's in my giveaway, winner to be announced tomorrow).

Challenges:
Passion For Promarkers - 'Happy' in the sentiment
Marianne Design Divas - Christmas
Kaboodles Doodles #149 - Red
