It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas....

Another Christmas card from me - one yesterday too, great to be adding to my stash...
Now this one is using all new stuff... new embossing folder (actually wondered how I was ever going to use it), new snowflakes/gift dies, and a new sentiment stamp.... all new for the ABC Christmas challenge this month 'N' for New.  I was inspired to use the EF with the theme/photo inspiration at Jingle Belles - Snowflakes hanging on an open fireplace..  And I am also joining in at CAS-ual Fridays CFC178 - Christmas in July.
In making my card I just loved the blue and white theme - I fussy cut the embossed fireplace and a few extras for the mantle piece, watercoloured my 'fire', arranged my die cut gifts and snowflakes and added my stamped embossed sentiment strip.  To finish I cut a wee scottie dog in white card using an image from the net and lighly shaded his features...I think he's cute.  Thanks for taking a peek
