H is for Holidays (Christmas)

Good morning to all in the land of blog.
Well it's time for another challenge over at ABC and we're up to the letter H already, and this time H is for Holidays (Christmas).  We are also very lucky to be sponsered by the fabulous Lili of the Valley.
I thought it was about time I made a start on my Christmas cards so this was the perfect challenge to get me in the Christmas mood.
I dug out my gorgeous Snow Juggler stamp from Sugar Nellie and got him inky. I used some Papermania DP's from last year I think they were called 'Home for Christmas' but don't quote me on that! The ticket stamp is from Magnolia and the felt snowflakes were also from Papermania. As always I used my trusty ProMarkers to colour and distressed everything using Antique Linen Distress Ink. Finally I added a touch of Stardust Stickles to make the snowballs sparkle

Hope to see you over at ABC and remember have fun!

I am entering this into the following challenges:
A Crafty Little Place - #64 'Red, White and Green'
A Spoonfull of Sugar - #129 'Snow/Snowflakes'
Paper Sundaes - #43 'Let it Snow'
ABC Christmas - 'W is for Winter Wonderland'
Wild Orchid - #9 'Classic Christmas'
