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.

Don't forget to head over to Allsorts for all the details of this challenge, and to check out all the fabulous inspiration from my very talented team mates.

  1. 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.
