Are you thinking about Christmas yet?

Well I am!

Every year in September when the kids go back to school I start thinking about the Christmas cards I will do this year. Sadly, I end up thinking for a very long time and don't actually get to them until mid November..LOL! The first year I sent hand made cards I made a variety, since then I have picked one design and mass produced them. This year I think I'll do a variety again since I have so many Christmas stamps I love I want to use them all.

Among my very fav's this year are the new Stella's and Chichi's that I got last week from Emily. Polly Packages was the first one I coloured up with my new Lyra's and gamsol and I used SCS sketch challenge SC193 for the layout. There is almost something vintage looking about her...maybe it's those big boots...but I think that is why I love her so much because I adore vintage Christmas images!

Can't wait to get my other's inked up!

Love your card. Very pretty. I think she does look vintage-like, but it is your coloring, and it is beautiful.
