Ist Christmas card of 2012

Hi,

I never thought I would utter these words until the end of the year  - it's like a swear word in January I know but I want to be more organised so why not!  Don't know if it'll carry on through the year but hey ho I'll give it a go. I started this card last night and finished it off this morning after my shopping had been delivered.  Hoping to do some more crafting later.  I created this card to match the challenge at abc christmas challenge blog , I didn't realise there were so many xmas challenges about.Without further ado here it is:

I used my Fancy pants - Saint Nick paper pad for the sentiment the border and backing paper.My Tatty Teddy freebie stamps from Creativity magazine last year - coloured with promarkers, glitter and paper pieced the post box and the stocking from red card. 

Challenges:
abc christmas challenge - b for bears and bling
sparkles forum christmas challenge- christmas stockings
crimbo crackers - challenge 7 for child
craftyhazelnuts christmas challenge 56 - have a heart (heart on the stocking being carried)
paper sundaes challenge 104 - paper piecing on my post box ,stocking and hat
fussy and fancy challenge - let it snow

Well that's it from me for now.  Can I say welcome to my new follower and thank you to everyone for all the lovely comments.

Love Debs x
