I'm having fun crafting with the new Winnie Angels from Polkadoodles.
This card features Forest Friends  After coloring the image with copics, I painted her halo with extreme glitter paint and used snow tex on the tree and ground.

I don't know about you, but I don't think a card is finished unless the inside of the card is decorated too.

Anyone who follows my blog knows that I love to make Christmas cards.  In fact, I make them all year long.  I love all styles of cards from cute to funny to wintery to religious.  That being said, I think I adore the new release of image from Polkadoodles featuring Winnie Angel.  You are just going to love them too.  This card features one of the new images called Woodland Song Time.

Happy Winter card

Christmas is just 3 1/2 months away!  Are you ready?  Have you started your Christmas cards?  If you plan to mail your cards you need to have them done by the beginning of December.  I am slowly adding to my stash of holiday cards and hope to have them done in time.  Of course, there is always the mad dash right before  Christmas to finish.  I am hoping to avoid that again this year.
This is my DT card for The Merry Christmas Challenge.  Our theme is always Anything Christmas Goes.
