SNS and my first Xmas card for 2012!

Hello folks, sorry, I feel as if I've been MIA for a while, just not felt up to blogging this last week or so.  I have a week off work now though, so hopefully, I'll get my batteries recharged!  It's also my boy's 22nd birthday today so Happy Birthday, Boyo - love you loads!  May go out to lunch today to celebrate. 
Right on to my card, which is for the new challenge at Sketch N Stash following this fab sketch by our fabby Daniele.   
We also have a fabulous new sponsor at SNS this time - Crafty Individuals!  How fab is that and there are two gorgeous stamp sets up for grabs!

As I said earlier, this is my first Christmas card this year- eek, I'm about two months behind!!  I think I'm going to have to have a session of making lots of clean and simple ones!  
For this card, I've used this super cute image from Mo Manning, Christmas Puppy - isn't he a cutie!!

The papers are from a Trimcraft set that I've had an age and also from a Memory Box christmas set.  The little sentiment is from a LOTV set that I bought last year - in fact there's very little new on here, I suppose the image!  So nice though when you actually use some of your older goodies!

Check out the rest of the SNS DT cards here - they're gorgeous!  Have a fab day whatever you're doing!!

Super card Julie. I love the image and your colouring. It just doesn't feel right making Christmas cards. It feels like we haven't had Summer yet, but I guess Christmas will be here all to soon.
