Christmas Girl & Reindeer Card (Flat Friends image)

Hi everyone,

I have a few cards to show you over the next couple of days but just in case you don't have time to come back and visit - I wish you a very Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays with your friends and family.

I was given this gorgeous image from Emma the owner of Flat Friends when she was closing her blog, the good news is her store is still open though so click on the name if you want to check it out. This is such a lovely image isn't it? I used a lot of my snowflake die cuts here and even my lamp post die which I really don't use enough.  I added some sparkly pearls for the snowflake centres (it's not a typo, that's how we spell centre in Australia hehe).

Flourish with a Bling have a 50% off sale all throughout December, everything is half off!! I hope you'll check out our website as we have our own unique products and we post worldwide. Please email if you would like rough estimates of shipping, if we can send it as a large letter we will or perhaps get your friends to all buy too and share the postage!
