Alright, I caved...

Evening everyone, I finally gave in and made a xmas card. Once I got to writing out my list of whom I want to send cards to I figured I better get busy! This is a mo manning image I believe it is called toboggan and I am entering it into her challenge this week. Her images are just about the best, definately one of my favorite sites. The card is very glittery but not sure if you can tell in the picture. The red stripes on the paper are glitter (and no I didn't do it by hand, it came that way) and the wooden snowflake in the corner I applied icicle stickles too. Just recieved a snowflake die set from my friend Elaine (hey!) so will try them out the next time. Not sure I care for both the dog and the sled both being brown so will also probably change the dog to gray. Ok, enough critique, enjoy the card.
