Christmas is coming!

Here is my first Christmas card for this year!

This is the stamp I used to create the background....

I used distress inks to create the lilac background...then stamped the winter scroll stamp with Versamark ink and then heat embossed it in white.

Personally I can't wait for the winter...I hate the heat of the summer with a passion! I get so hot in my craft room, and if I leave the windows open I get all sorts of wildlife flying in! By the way I found that the white striped moth that attacked me a week or so ago is called a swallow tailed moth and is one of the largest in Britain...well, I thought I may as well look it up as I got so up close and personal with it!!

Well, I'm off to dine al fresco...oh OK, I suppose there are some good things about summer lol!

What a GOOORRGGGEOUS White Winterland Christmas card!! That embossed flourish background you've made is so striking and I just love the sparkle dusting on your Bella and the card!! I'm not a hot weather gal either. When does the cooler weather roll in for you? Here, it could be as late as November! I'm crossing my fingers for much earlier though!! :>
