It's July and I just made my first Christmas card!

Well here's my very first Christmas card of 2011, bit odd making a Christmas card on such a hot day but hey ;-) I've used a super cute new stamp from Ladybug Crafts Ink, this lil chap is called Jack and so reminds me of my own Jack...



Supplies:
Image - Dear Santa from Ladybug Crafts Ink coloured with Promarkers
Papers & die cut sentiment inside card - Classic Christmas by Papermania from The Glitterpot
Cardstock - Dovecraft
Die cut heart - freebie with order from Dies to Die For, thank you x
Flowers - Crafty Emma's Store, Wild Orchid Crafts
Ribbons - stash
Pearls - The Glitterpot
Tools - circle & scallop circle Nesties, Stardust Stickles, Martha Stewart photo corner punch
