My First Christmas Card

Good Morning bloggers, it's Saturday morning so It's time for a new challenge today at Allsorts.
This week is our lovely Mervi's turn to host and she would like to see 'Early Christmas Makes', I have made my first Christmas card, so thank you Mervi for getting me going.
Here is what I did, I used a Humphrey's Corner stamp, isn't he so cute, and decided to go bright with the colouring and then stick to white and blue for the rest of the card, oh and glamour dusted snow, snowflakes and the border along the bottom, it does really sparkle in real life, wish I could capture it on the photo.  The border is a Memory box die called Frostyville 98146, I can see this being used a lot this Christmas, I love it, thanks Brenda.

The sentiment I used is from our sponsor Flonz and is from the Merry Christmas set.

I do like Humphrey and your card using him is a delight Tracy, I know how hard it is to capture sparkle on photos but it does actually show up well. And I knew that die would see some action with you.

While case design and finishing fake rolex is a historic strength for the Seiko brand dating back to the early ‘60s, the case design work for the Presage series has replica rolex generally been a weak point, with most models featuring simple round cases with all-over polished finishing. The fake watches stainless steel case of the Seiko Presage Sharp Edged Series, on the other hand, feels much more classic Seiko in its execution, with rolex replica visual hallmarks from several historic models. The 39.3mm case diameter is right in line with current trends, while the overall case shape dumps the usual Presage formula fake Breitling of slab case sides and straight lugs for something that feels more in line with the brand’s “Grammar of Design” era of the ‘60s and ‘70s. The wedge-shaped fake IWC angular lugs flow directly into the case sides, creating a single unbroken line running along the case sides from lug tip to lug tip, with only an unguarded signed pillbox crown to break up the fake Omega profile. As the name suggests, the transition between flat planes is a razor-sharp 90-degree angle. There’s a drastic inward tuck toward the caseback on the underside, helping fake Hublot the design to conform to the wrist and making the 11.1mm overall thickness feel slimmer.
