My 1st Christmas Card for 2012

Good morning to all my blogging friends!

Now, I thought rather than do my usual last minute dash to do Xmas cards, and then end up buying some, I'd start a little earlier this year! To be honest I just struggle to create festive cards when it's 30°c outside... sorry for all of the people in the UK who have already turned their heating on! I used to be one of you!

Anyway, as I am Guest Designer at Sweet Stampin' Challenge for the month of September, I was inspired to create my festive card by the theme this week which is WHITE ON WHITE. Isn't she just the cutest angel ever? I've kept it really simple, no papers, just a plain blank white card, with a few details added. I didn't add much as I wanted the image to be the focal point of the card. If you'd like to see more inspiration for the challenge, pop by the Sweet Stampin' blog where you'll find loads of fabulous creations, and details of the fabulous prize from our sponsors Letraset, Iva Nova Chest and Joanna Sheen!

Hasn't the Paralympic Games been fantastic, I can't believe it's almost over :( All the athletes have been such an inspiration, just goes to show that if you persevere and have courage, you can conquer anything!
