First Xmas Card of 2011!!!

I thought I would make a start at my christmas cards for 2011!!! This is card number 1 of 60!!! I have been feeling a bit down lately as have had a hard year with alot of things happening, so decided to do a bit crafting today to try and make myself feel a bit better. It has worked a little bit but wish I could feel alot better. I haven't done hardly any crafting this year as you can see from my blog but I am changing that starting today and aim to make at least 3 cards a week for the rest of the year. I will have to saying I have another 59 christmas cards to do!!!

Right then onto my card. This one is for the Sketch and Stash Challenge #70 - Fee Choice Sketch. We could choose any of the sketches from their catalogue, so here's the one I choose. Sketch no. 12:

As part of the launch celebrations, they're offering us the chance to win the full Humphrey range - that's the twin CD and all twelve stamps!
