Merry Christmas In September....

Good morning everyone!

As a girl who nevers starts making Christmas cards early I'm not sure what has come over me this year.... I've made one in September!!! Just saw this stunning vintage image whilst browsing my CD and had to use her straight away..... had to glitter up her fur a little bit first though, lol!!

I've used papers from Basic Grey's Wassail range and a Webster's Pages Christmas collection.The holly leaves are a QuicKutz die and the swirl is DooHickey. The large snowflake is by Spellbinders and all other embellies are from my stash. And yep..... torn roses..... AGAIN!!!! I notice this week's challenge at Basic Grey is Pink and Brown which fits perfectly with my card ;o)

I'm also entering the following challenges:

CES - Embellish More More (at least 4 types.... hmmmmm, never difficult for me, lol)

Creative Inspirations - Anything Goes

Corrosive - Punches and/or Dies

Tuesday Throwdown - Pearls

Winter Wonderland - Girly Christmas

Paperplay - Punches or Dies

One Stop - Girlie

Oldie But A Goodie - Christmas In September

Moving Along With The Times - Sparkle

Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by today ;o)

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx
