Christmas IS coming!!

Ha! Ha! Bet that title got ya going, especially as the weather is so GORGEOUS here in the UK at the moment.  My hubby thinks I'm barmy making Christmas cards when spring/summer is just on it's way, but I did PROMISE myself I'd get ahead this year, and up until now have only made one card - which is just not good enough, lol.

Anyway, today's card features a little lovely from LOTV.  I coloured her pre-Christmas 2010, but just never got around to making her into a card, so when I came across her the other day, it was just the spur I needed to get stuck in.  The papers are actually from a freebie pad that I got with a magazine a couple of years ago.  I've then backed them with plain red, and white card - whoops!  Don't know how I've suddenly gone all italics, lol.  The doily is my new one from Cheery Lynn, I think you'll be seeing a lot of it!!  There's a bit of white border cut with a Doo Hickey die.  Snowflakes are Marianne D and Martha Stewart.  Ribbon from stash, and that's about it really.

Hope I've maybe inspired one or two of you to start a bit of forward thinking??
