Spreading good cheer with the first festive card of the year!

Morning, happy Friday and welcome to August! Today I have my very first Christmas card make of the year to share with you. I treated myself to a few festive Paper smooches and Doodlebug items so that I can get a head start on my christmas cards, I always say the summer hols are too early but if I don't do it now I'll never actually get enough made in time for December.

So here it is, a little less CAS than normal I guess but still quite clean I think- and yes I know pretty much every card I've made of late has featured a Doodlebug/Paper smooches combo, what can I say I love both the brands and they go together soooooo well. I promise that I will dig out some other supplies and leave the cute and colourful stuff to one side for a little while.

Stamps- Paper smooches- Giddy Gumdrops
Dies- Paper smooches stitched tag, MFT mini banner
Papers- Doodlebug- home for the holidays 6 x6 
Other- Distress glitter, Doodlebug sprinkles, Promarkers, Doodlebug twine, mini dots embossing folder, 3D foam, Memento black ink

Thanks for stopping by today,
