My First Christmas Card for 2011

Hi, a little while ago I won a Tim Holtz paper stack from Wanda, which was terrific as I most definitely cannot afford to buy one.  So have used a piece of this double sided paper to make a Christmas card.



Well thats one card made and if I get the time will make some more.  Hope you all had a lovely Firework weekend and have a great week.  Will be back later in the week with my DT piece for Gingersnaps and showing the progress thats been made with Pandora's Box (Large Canvas) on Friday at Paint Party.

Have you done any of your Christmas Present Shopping yet?  We haven't, so have got to set aside a couple of days to get some of it done and I hate drudging around the shops, so may take the easy way out and buy a lot of it online.  Take care and will catch up with you all later, Hugs Annette x
