My First Christmas Card for 2011!

Happy Birthday to me...
Well, todays my Birthday... SOOOOO....
naturally I made a Christmas card!
yeah, thats just the way I roll baby!!

Was looking through my stamps this morning, and this cutie just screamed for ink....
so christmas it was...

Beanie Anya is coloured with promarkers...
The papers are MME, Echo Park and Sassafrass
yet more Kraft (are you getting bored of it yet?)
added a sentiment and some diddy snowflake stamps...
loads of doodling, loads of buttons, a couple of glittery pearls and a Kraft snowflake...
as a last minute thought I added some glitter to her eyelids... not sure it was a good move... hey ho!!

So thats one 2011 Christmas card down....

go me...go me!!

I've followed the fabulous sketch from Sketch and Stash...


and I'd also like to enter it into the following challenges...
Crazy Challenge Christmas in July
Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes
The Crafty Pad Christmas in July
Creative Inspirations - Christmas in July
Paper Sundaes Christmas in July

Thanks for stopping by today!!
