IT'S CHRISTMAS!!!!!

Ye, OK, I know it's not, but it's so cold it flippin' may as well be.  This time last year I had comments left reminding me that my blog was still snowing, I guess it's still quite fitting at the moment.  Update:  I've just looked outside the window and it's snowing again.
I've the last of my marbled projects to share today and it's a Christmas one.

Don't ask me what made me use this gorgeous bit of yellow and pink loveliness for a Christmas card it was just one of those random moments.  The stamps are from an old Francoise Read set, the little car chugging home for Christmas with a pink tree on top just appealed to me.  I've used Promarkers for colouring and then used a wiggly stamp from the set repeated around the edge to make a frame.

The little pink stars dotted around are from Papermania.

There wasn't enough of this marbled sheet to make the envelope, but there was plenty to line a nice crsip white one.

Challenges:
Winter Wonderland - Pretty in pink
Crafts & Me #126 - Pretty in pink
Christmas Card Challenge #17 - Clean and simple (optional)
Christmas All Year Round - Sparkle and bling

We all went to an Easter workshop yesterday and had a lovely time.  There was face painting for the little and not so little ones.  Lots of faces with Easter bunnies on, fairies and butterflies.  Branston Pickle of course ..............

Kate, your yellow and pink Christmas card is wonderful! I love it! Love the swirly paper (like they are chugging along in a blizzard) and the awesome color choices are definitely HAPPY just as your sentiment says. I also LIKE the snowfall on your blog, too. Sounds like something I would do, leaving it on for a while - then again, it IS still cold out! Even in Florida tonight we are having a freeze - LOL thans for sharing your delightful card. I really enjoy your writing style, too. hugs, de
