Final Christmas Card from Moi

Hello my friends,
I have finally completed my Christmas card orders and done our family ones as well - in between having the flu and ending up with a persistent night time cough, I have achieved what I set out to do! Whew!

I am sick of the sight of bl##dy Christmas cards now but have two birthday orders to get done - one for 25th Dec and another for 13 Jan so no rest for the wicked eh?

First a sneak peak of this final the embossing here....

The image is a stunning freebie from A Day For Daisies - do go along and have a look they are gorgeous images!
 And finally the card......
I just adore this image and think it may end getting used again next year - I have already decided that I am going to make one Christmas card per week so that I am better organised this time next year.  Yes you read that statement correctly but just remind me of it in the New Year pls!!

I coloured this image with my PMs and the DP is a Milton Freebie!

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

Little Claire's Family Christmas;
CES Traditional Christmas:
Creations by Gill Red and Green;
Dream Valley Christmas; and
Joanna Shen Its Beginning to Look a Lot like Christmas!

Thanks for visiting today my friends and happy crafting to you all!!
