Alice at Christmas

This just may just be my last Christmas card for 2010!!!! I've used the gorgeous "Alice with Present" from Mo Manning - availabe HERE. She's not only for Christmas though - she'd be great for birthdays too! I wanted to make another Christmas card because my Tim Holtz Snow Flurries die FINALLY arrived and I just couldn't WAIT to play. It serves me right for thinking I hadn't NEEDED it earlier and I blame my talented friend Debbie Dolphin for making me realise I DID with all of her gorgeous inspiration with it - LOL. I glittered it up and then layered a sheer white polka dotted ribbon over the straight edge.

My DPs are from my Basic Grey - Figgy paper pad - this was last year's design and it's alomost gone - noooooooooo! The sentiment and metal frame are from Stampin' Up.

Hoping you are all ready for the BIG DAY and are feeling relaxed and stress free to enjoy it - I know I'm TRYING too - LOL

The image is Too cute Debbie. I think you have had your mojo all along too. I just need a break from crafting but I don't see that happening. I love the snow flake die and now I need it, but I guess I can wait.

Well ... you are one to talk!!! Fancy blaming someone else ... for making you think you NEEDED something else for your paper crafting! I seem to remember you being a really BAD influence on me!!! GIGGLE!!! And ... you continue to be with every creation that you show us. I have just learnt that I have to be content ... and I just CANNOT have everything I see on Debbie P's blog! I so love the soft colours and you are right ... that Die is "to die for". I'm glad it arrived in time for you to have a play before Christmas! Hugs xxaxx
