Jingle Belles: No time like the present(s)

Hi everyone,

Well It's the first day in the New Year & I've managed to make a half decent card.  I used the latest Jingle Belles challenge here to make this card.  I also was leafing through some old Cardmaking books & came across a card which inspired this one.  The only thing I wish I did differently on this card is the embossed senitment.  I kinda stuffed it up, but am not sure how to fix it.  Oh well it's better than nothing I guess. 

I hope you aren't sick of Christmas cards yet (or I'm gonna be in trouble ;P) as I am trying to get ahead on 2012's Christmas card list.  I've already written down my card giving list (all three of them).  I have a family/friends, list an overseas list & a Mothers' group list.  I figured it would make my job a lot easier if I split them up like that.  That way I know which cards have to go out early etc.

Have a great week ahead & Happy 2012 everyone xoxoxoxo
