Christmas Joy 2012 !!!!!

Hello my dears,  Well well well!!!!  who would have thought that making a Christmas Card for 2012 would have been such fun.  

I bought this sweet Edwin stamp last week,  I couldn't get him pre Christmas because he was Sold Out everywhere I looked.  Woohooo!! he is mine now. lol,  so I just had to ink him up.  

I now have 1 Christmas card ticked off my list and put away.

There are some challenges that helped immensely in my putting this together.  So thank you all so much and without further ado I would like to enter the following challenges:

Bizzy Becs Store Blog Challenge:  Gave me my colour theme of All White with the exception of the image and they would also like to see some Hearts. (sorry it's not a Valentine card but I hope it still  qualifies)

Magnolia Down Under Challenge:  Would like to see One Word on your creations this week. I've chosen JOY

Winter Wonderland Challenge: Do not want to see any Square or Rectangle Cards this week.  It's my first time popping back to see my lovely old (sorry girls) teamies. lol x

Stamp Man Challenge: Would like to see Texture this week.  All the snowflakes have been hand glittered, the wee apples have had glossy accents applied and my lace is very tactile.
Marks Finest Papers Challenge: (Speedy Fox & Friends) would like to see a shaped card this week.

My circular easel card was made using my new Fiskars Circle punch, I bought it last year but wasn't sure I would ever use it.  It's quite simple to use and I love the effect it gives.

A full recipe for my card is below this post.

Hope you are all having a great weekend.
