Merry Christmas.........

Good morning everyone!

Thought I'd nip on to show you a quick Christmas card I came up with this week using a pre-coloured LOTV die cut image..... these are fab when you need something instant but I did add my own touch by inking and stitching the edges, plus I glittered the sweet little bunny within an inch of her life, lol!

I found inspiration for the layout from some fabulous cards made by the uber talented Kath.... which you can see here. I just loved the colour palette and country feel!

I'm entering the following challenges:

CES - Anything Goes

Sweet Stampin' - Celebrate

Allsorts - Anything Goes

Fussy and Fancy Friday - Show Us Some Snow

ASFOS - Christmas Card

Creative Card Crew - Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous weekend ;o)

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx
