Festive 48 - Week 1 - Get Smug for Christmas 2014



My  New Year’s resolution is to do better and get my Christmas cards done in advance this year.

As nothing motivates me better than a deadline I will commit to posting a new Christmas card here every Sunday morning .I should end up with 48 cards by the time I need to send them out.

Will you join me?  I have an Inklinz sub so I might as well use it!

For the first of my 48 cards, I made a fat robin out of circle punches. I had the usual photography problems – the glitter doesn’t sparkle and I’m reflected in the snowfall acetate!

Feel free to link up a Christmas card (just one a week) and we can both feel smug by December.

 I’d like to enter these challenges:
City Crafter snowbirds
Cute Card Thursday  Cold and frosty 
QKR Stampede Snowflakes and sparkle 
ABC Christmas Challenge Anything Christmas 
Red Carpet Studio Snow buddies
