CAN WE REACH CHRISTMAS CARD

Good morning everyone.
Today's card is another Christmas make. We did most of our Christmas shopping at the weekend so I'm well and truly in the spirit of things now.
I've had a good rummage through all my crafty bits, determined not to buy more before I've used what I've got! It's so hard!
I found this little image I coloured in yonks ago; no idea where it's from. Obviously I didn't finish colouring it either, but I like it just the way it is. I've added some Stickles to the decorations and around the edge of the die-cut. The pink snowflake paper is from Papermania Mistletoe Kisses range (as is the snowflake) and the blue snowflake paper is just a snippet I found in my Christmas box. I've layered the pieces up onto silver mirri card and wrapped it all in silver edged organza ribbon (another "find"!). The little corner is a die-cut which I've "frantaged" and the sentiment is a freebie from a magazine.
Off to work in a bit but I think I've got time to squeeze in some die-cutting while I watch a bit of "Love Actually"....my fave film of the week.
Hugs
Fiona
