Starting early...

I have decided that this year I will start my Christmas cards now to avoid the madness that I know happens every year....
I demo Christmas cards from June, so by the time I get around to making my own cards I run out of steam....
This year I plan to make at least a couple every month - that's very do-able and at the end of it I will have at least a few to start me off...
So that is why I made this card....
One the must have products of this year are these papers...
The resist papers are STUNNING!!!! I love them and can think of a million and one things to do with them!
They are brilliant when you want the embossed look but have run out of time or you need a quick card on the go.....
I will always have some of these in my stash.......
Did I say just how much I adore these!!! lol

This is the finished card...

 And here are a few close ups for you.....


Pop on over to the WOW! blog to see all the projects from the design team..... or pop over to the shop to see all the lovely things that are WOW!.......
I'm out and about today, but will be back later tonight to do some blog hopping and see all the wonderful thigns you have all been creating.

Happy crafting
