'I'm Dreaming Of A White Christmas, Just La, La, La, La, La, La, La'

Well, the silly season will soon be upon us - the shops are already gearing up, with crackers and cards and wrapping paper.  It's only October and yet we've started the big count-down. 

Mind you, in Crafty Blogland, we need to be preparing ourselves, don't we?  There are not only cards to make, but there are packaging projects and gift projects and general all-round making of beautiful things.  So, I've started - I've begun my Christmas cards and I must say, I've actually enjoyed making the first few.  How long this will last, I don't know, but at least I've started in the right frame of mind!

And here's one of the first:

Image: Just Inklined, 'Little Church in the Snow'

Papers: Graphic 45

I'm really pleased with this little card - although the image is quite traditional, I think the finished product is actually quite modern and bright. 

This sweet little image was coloured with my Copics, and then I simply laid down some Glamour Dust for the snow.  I punched out some snowflakes, cut them in half and made a little frame for the image and finished off with three holly leaves and a red bow.  Not difficult to do (not even the image) and one that I can reproduce easily - result!

I'm going to enter this in this week's Allsorts challenge, where we are being challenged to make a card based on a song title.  'I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas' would seem most appropriate, don't you think!?

Right, time to link up and get to bed - another busy day tomorrow!

Happy crafting.
