Diecut Divas - Holidays

So here we are, the first day of November and you know what that means - a brand new challenge over at Diecut Divas. So this month we are talking about Holidays, any holidays. Of course this could be a perfect opportunity to start on those Christmas cards we have been putting off until now. So to kick it off I am using an adorable Bugaboo image for one of my many Christmas cards I'm sure.

Die cut Divas, Bugaboo Stamps Fairy Christmas, Cuttlebug snowflakes, elizabeth craft design snowflakes doodlebug designs, ice stickles, memento ink, wink of stella
