Its that time again folks!!!!  I had such a fun time doing last years that I just couldn't resist joining in SHIMMELLE'S CLASS again this year.  When you are up to your ears making cards & gifts for other people I think its really nice to make something that is just for yourself!!!  I won't be blogging this everyday but will wait till I have a few pages to go if thats ok XXX

Here is my cover...I have gone for gold & bling this year.  The papers are my faves this year by My minds Eye and the gorgeous snowflake chippie is from Tando.  The gold lace has been 'borrowed' from another project (hope I have enough left now haha) and there is gold stickles on the snowflakes.

Thank you so much for taking a look, if you find time do have a go at this as its very rewarding!  HUGS XXX
