Is it too early for Christmas?

Oh dear.  After 3 months of frantic Christmas crafting from October last year, I promised myself that I'd not be making another Christmas card for at least another 10 months, and yet here we are in March and I've failed with that New Year's resolution already! 

This is a lovely Stamp Fairy image, one of loads that I'm slowly collecting!   I've also used my lovely new nesties to follow a sketch which needed a circle and a square. I wanted to do a totallly white card, and use my spotty embossing folder, but I ended up with some shiny blue and silver wrapping paper on one of the panels.  Still, I think it looks ok. 

I've been inspired by the following:
Happy crafting
