Simply for Christmas

This is my second post for today - got the house to myself and peace and quiet.........

Well I suppose it s about time to start making those dreaded Christmas cards methinks - I dread the festive season as it brings back so many bad memories of a very unhappy first marriage where my hubby drank constantly for the 2 weeks he was off work and no matter how hard I try to put the past behind me, I cannot forget these years.

Enough of me being is a card made using one of Jenni's fabulous new Imogen images - 'Imogen Trimming The Tree'  - I tried to keep the card simple to show off how pretty the image is....she would look fab in any colour wouldn't she?

I used my PMs in various shades of grey and black, added some glitter, gems and ribbon.  DP is from Pink Petticoat.

Ain't she just adorable - you can buy her here along with lots of other fabulous digis.

I am going to enter this one into the following challenges:~
