I’ve added some Polar White Flower Soft to the bobbles on her hats and boots.There’s also a little snowy smattering beneath her feet 🙂

The paper is a magazine freebie – it’s unusual but I like it 😀

A length of gingham ribbon with some jingle bells tied to it using jute twine has been added to embellish.

As I’ve written and posted all my Christmas cards for this year this is another one under the belt for 2015 😀
