A blue and sassy Xmas!

Hi everyone!  Have you finished your Xmas shopping now?!  I have - surprisingly so!  But I didn't realise I still have quite a few Xmas cards to make so I'm manically doing them now!  Here's one I made for one of my gorgeous friends...



I love this sassy lady called First Snow by Sassy Studio Designs, but I think she needs to put some trousers on!!  Still, I wished I was young enough to not care standing out in the snow!!  I matched her up with papers from the Christmas Joy paper pad designed by Mindy Terasawa.  I used DCWV glitter cardstock for the snowflakes and lots of Glamour Dust.


Right, off to bed to get up early to wrap up the last of the Xmas pressies!



I am entering this card into the following challenges:

She looks fab and not a bit cold without the trousers. Very pretty card. I like the buttons in the center of the snowflakes. If I don't make it back to your blog before, have a Merry Christmas.

Gorgeous colours and love the snowflakes.
The image reminds me of a university friend who wore miniskirt all year round and when I asked doesn't she get cold (and believe me, the winters are usually quite cold in Finland) she just said it's enough that her internal organs are kept warm but legs don't matter. Still makes me laugh. She always wore a warm coat though.
