Oh bugger having just seen this post made me realise I did December's challenge for this month's N&A's challenge. I have deleted it and scheduled it for December but now have no card for today grrr. I can't believe I did that lol.
Anyhow onto your card which is really, really cute. I love that image and with the mirri card and snowflakes it looks so Christmassy.
Have a lovely time tonight.
