I thought I would start by showing you my first Christmas card.. I blame Hazel (Dido) as she sent me some proper cute christmas images in a swap..and I just couldn't resist using them a bit early..I know some of you have already started you christmas cards but me, I usually leave it till end of October before I start with them...
This is for the challenge over at Magical Crafts whos sketch I have followed..
