Walking in a Winter Wonderland

"Well the weather outside is frightful......" No it is definately too early for Christmas songs but I really do need to get organised this year and get my Christmas cards made before the 20th December. So I dug out the beautiful Snowflake stamp from Sugar Nellie and got to work. I used some old DP from Craft Creations and teamed it with coredinations card. The snowflakes were made with one of the new Marianne D die sets. Then I added lots of faux stitching, bling and plenty of stickles and here is my first Christmas card of the year:
