My First Xmas Card.... PFP Week 19.


And about time, too! I'm hoping that this will give me the kick up the pants I need to start making my Xmas cards early enough to be able to post them out in time for the big jolly fella's visit. Christmas has never been a terribly exciting time for me, personally I much prefer Hallowe'en (does that make me a bad person??). So, I always struggle to get all festive and worked up to make Xmassy things.


I bought this stamp from my fellow Trimmie, Jenni (cardmadfairy). She's just produced a range of Xmas themed stamps that I think are great. (Although she colours them a heck of a lot better than me!!) I've decided to make this card for the Passions for ProMarkers Week 19 challenge. The requirements were to use Apricot and Cool Aqua and to include a flower. As I'd decided on a Xmas card, I thought I'd make snowflake flowers instead of the usual ones. If this isn't okay, then apologies all round. :s
