Im late with my early Christmas cards!

Its a really beautiful day here, lots of bright sunshine and very nippy indeed!  I hope you are all enjoying your weekends, mine's been very crafty and I'm loving it!
At Christmas Clare and I agreed that we would need to commit to making a few xmas cards each month as we were both disappointed with our own personal makes last year and Clare has made a good start!  I am now dragging up the rear with this one!

The stamp is one of 3 that I won on Judy's blog last year and Im affraid to say I dont have any idea who 's it is (if anyone recognises it please let me know so I can give proper credit).  It's a real bargain basement card as the rich red velvet ribbon was only 10p for a reel too!  The two xmas papers are both bargain buys by Crafts House and are pearlised papers, they are so lovely so I took another shot to see if I could show you them better.

I followed a sketch but have been to late to add it to the challenge :(
I'm busy with Valentine cards this weekend and hope to be back to share some soon.
Thanks for calling in!

Lol well it's a lovely card in very opulent Christmas colours - love it. It's very cold here too, but plenty of sunshine, so like you have been a busy bee crafting away! Hugs, Claire x

ooooh, don't know if I could stretch to making christmas cards now! I know we need to start early but I think i'll wait a bit longer.... though I know what you mean about being disappointed because you run out of time to do what you want to do . I like this card because the image is not overly christmas! (until you add the papers etc.
Have a good day, when will you be stating next years valentines cards LOL?

A fabulous festive card Keryn, and such a cute image. I have some of those pearly papers too .. .. if I could just remember which box I put them in for 'safe keeping'!
enjoy the rest of your day.
hugs, annie x
