Morning :)

 Now, I know we are in the middle of June, but, once we have passed Mid-Summers Day on 21 June, my mind ALWAYS starts wandering towards That Thing On 25 December We Don't Mention. Bleurgh! And because you can be sure that even though I think about it for many months, I also bury my head in the sand about it for many months too.

So, come December, when really, I need to have a lovely big stack of cards ready prepared for That Thing On 25 December We Don't Mention, I find myself rushing around, promising myself that next year will be different. Ahem!

To ease myself into the process of making cards for That Thing On 25 December We Don't Mention, I thought I would share a Winter Birthday Card. Yes, you read that right. After today, I will not be making anything vaguely That Thing On 25 December We Don't Mention related until approximately 17 December...

hehehe good sense of humour. Love this card, saw the colouring on the Copic blog and went looking for your blog. Love it so now a new follower (stalker). This little girl is such a cutie, I love her. Is she stamp or digital image, if you have time would love to know. I am working on my skills slowly but love seeing when others do colouring and it looks so realistic. Wonderful talent.

Wondrous card! (I'm trying new adjectives out). Love her hair, well everything else too, but I'm having hair envy here. I've only made one of those cards for the time you don't want to mention and only as a DT card. I make myself the same promise every year too but it never happens. Debra x

Phew, I was very worried that you were making things for That Thing on 25 December We Don't Mention already...and then I'd have had to ask if you were feeling ok hun?!
So, I'm glad to see it's just a Winter birthday card and a very gorgeous one at that...love the furry boots and clothing :-)
Big hugs, Kat xx
