Roly Poly Snowlady

It's Wednesday. We're half way through the first week of Advent and I'm in a state of panic! Why? Because I've already received a dozen cards to date!!! I shamefully admit I haven't mailed out any. It's true...a big fat zero in my festive outbox! Time to get it done ...and I intend to do so this evening.

Have you started yours? Have you done yours? Are you already planning Easter? This is depressing, I need something sweet to calm my nerves. Ferrero's Mon Cherie ... cherry brandy... chocolate ... mmmmm

Back on earth... I want to show you a card I made last night. It's light-weight, flat and will not inconvenience Postman Pat. The cute image is by Polka Doodles PickNix Gingerbread Twist CD and I'm calling her Roly Poly Snowlady. (That just made me crave some Jam Roly Poly... yummmm)

The patterned paper is from Papermania's "Home for Christmas" 6x6 pad.

I cut out the image with Spellbinders Standard Circles die and layered it on cherry CS cut with Spellbinders Scalloped Circles die. Some silver ribbon and we're done!  

Quick and easy colouring with alcohol markers ...that's all she needs! The Snowlady is from Polka Doodles PickNix Gingerbread Twist CD.

The greeting on the inside is also from Polka Doodles PickNix Gingerbread Twist CD. 

Today I'm playing along with The Stamping Boutique #61 "Holiday Cards"; Crafty Sentiments "Snowmen / ladies"; Tuesday Throwdown #126 "White Christmas"; Top Tip Tuesday #91 "Christmas".

That's it from me today. Thanks for dropping in. I'm off to look for my Jam Roly Poly recipe... must have some tonight! We'll catch up in a day or two...hopefully by then I would have sorted out my out-going cards.  <wish me luck!>
