Naughty or Nice...

Good morning lovely friends...

I know you all are so happy with my little calendar reminders that I just can't resist reminding you that it is the big day in exactly two weeks time! (-:

I really love making Christmas cards, I make them all year round.  
However, I am extra happy with today's card, I loved colouring this wonderful image and I am over the moon with the end result.
I coloured this gorgeous girl - 
with Copics and then sat her on a snowy Kraft background with some scrummy MFT stripey paper.  The sentiment is also from MFT.

Beautiful Alpini - she definitely deserves to be on the nice list!
