Tiddly Inks Christmas card

Hi there, I am giving away some Flourish with a Bling candy, if you'd like the chance to win it click here. It finishes on Thursday 20th December and I will announce the winner on Friday!

Who loves Christmastime? I do, it's such a special time of year, I grew up in England (until I was 10) where it was cold at Christmas but have lived in Australia for 31 years where Christmas falls in the middle of summer! It took a long time to adjust and I would love to enjoy a white Christmas again one day.

No wonder I am able to post all these cards today as it's 37 degrees outside!!! So hot I'm not stepping foot out the front door until I absolutely must for my daughter's dancing concert tonight.

My card today is made with a gorgeous little Tiddly Inks digi, she actually comes with a snowman too! I printed the sentiment from my computer. The lovely papers are from Echo Park.

FWAB used:
Jasmine red laser flourish (part of)
Jack green leaves
Olive green pearls
Elise pink flower
