I would like to enter my card into the following fabulous challenges:

Penny Black Saturday Challenge - May Challenge Anything Goes

Hi Sue,

Every time I see a Christmas card I get a pang of guilt and think I must get going on them.

This one is quite delightful, the fresh cool blues and the splashed of colours on the scarves really bring the image to life.

Oh what a happy card, Sue! I needed to see the snow flakes and crisp coolness this morning - it is warm here and will be another scorcher this afternoon! So you have cooled me down with the delightful snow flake die cut "floating" across the top of your stamp panel. Looks darling! No wonder you smile while coloring the little hedgehogs. Happiness is... (that is what your card is), hugs, de
