So Sunday it is....Got my Christmas hat on :-)

Hello everyone.  Hope you are all having a fabulous weekend.

I seem to finally be getting my crafting mojo back - it seems to have been a long time.

I'm getting my Christmas hat on!  I know, I know, it's a bit early, but us crafters have to get organised.

So, I spent some time in the craft room yesterday, designing this card and today I put it all together.

Using the fabulous new release from Polkadoodles - Festive Christmas Collection.

With this collection you can also buy fabulous stamp sets, they are Stamp Soup Kits - Red Red Robin and O Christmas Tree.  You can pre-order these stamp sets for release by the end of the month.  You can buy the individual stamp sets, or you can buy the whole lot including the CD!

Anyway, lets get on with my card for today.

I have made a faux shaker card, using the wonderful papers and pre-coloured images from this collection.

I added some dimension to the images by decoupaging some pieces.

For the inside, I printed out this beautiful paper once again and added the sentiment from the collection.  You can see this sentiment through the shaker window from the front of the card.

I love this vintage snowman.

A beautiful peace dove sits atop one corner of the shaker window.

First Christmas card of the year.

I am entering this card in the following challenges.
