First Christmas card of 2011!!

Christmas is comeing the goose is getting fat!! hehe well the goose is probably only a little plump yet!! But I couldn't resist making a card with my Fabarooni new sugar nellie christmas stamps!! they are sooo cute!! I have coloured a few so far but only finished one card.
Isn't she lovely!!! I feel she is like a Disney princess and  she and that sweet little robin are singing to each other!! I know... I'm a sap!!! Lol Well I made all sorts of proclamations this year saying that my christmas cards were going to be modern and blue!! But deep down I knew I would resort back to Traditional, just didn't think it would be quite this soon!!! Lol!! This is also my first go at Bev's clouds, and although they aren't perfect I am pretty pleased!!! Hmm just had another look!! well maybe a bit more practice is called for!!! hehe.
