Are we all in Christmas Card Panic Mode Yet??

and if not.............Good on you!
Frankly I haven't made a single one -that is if you don't count the demonstration cards and the cards made for classes, and the cards for other people [orders] etc., but made for me.........nah, not a one!

However, couldn't resist this little chappie, another new stamp from the Mabel Lucie Attwell range from The Artistic Stamper

I cut out the circle in the white card, and used Acetate, then glued the stamped and coloured image on top - stamped and coloured and decoupaged the holly - which I just love! on top... and fixed the whole thing to the card front with 3mm foam pads.  The patterns were made using Zig Calligraphy Pens and I coloured the image in with the Calligraphy pens and a Water Brush - Simple!...... The piccy does not do the card justice, at least I don't think so... but then I could be biased.  OK, hope you like, off to make so chrissy cards for me now............... Happy Crafting xx
