Penny Black Week 80 - Christmas Charms

A GUID NEW YEAR TO ALL IN BLOGLAND
I want to wish a very happy and prosperous crafting year to everyone who has supported me in my cardmaking efforts since I started in late July. Your visits, help and encouragement have been a great motivation to me and I have met some wonderfully talented people. Thank you one and all.

Hi girls, Welcome to my first post in 2010. It's great to have you taking time out of your holiday celebrations to visit. I really hope your visit is worthwhile and that you find something that is pleasing to the eye and might even encourage your own mojo juices.
This card is being entered into the Penny Black challenge where the theme is "Christmas Charms". I have borrowed "Snowy" from my DIL while we're here to stay for the holiday and coloured him in using her Promarkers. In fact I also "stole" her papers which are My Mind's Eye Colourful Christmas "Bright Stripes" and "Merry Dots". The bell charm is mine believe it or not.
It's great being on holiday here - my stash is safe and sound at home.Lol.
If you like this enough I would love you to leave me a comment if you have time. It's great to have your opinions and encouragement.
Enjoy the rest of the holiday and enjoy your crafting.

Hugs,
