As well as running Crimbo Crackers in order to make sure I have plenty of Christmas cards and not to be panic stricken come November, I thought I'd do an extra festive card with this cute Sassy Cheryl image I bought from CraftsUPrint.  I came in a kit of 5 Sassy Cheryl images all pre-coloured for £3 which I thought was a bargain!

I've added it to some green printed card that I know I printed probably 6 or more years ago (and I've only just found it!) from one of the very first Funky Hand cd's - Yule Be Funky.  The other papers are offcuts (that I have had to be very clever with the joining!) from DCWV - The Christmas Stack 6x6 papers.

I've added some green Christmas ribbon from my stash and a snowflake charm.  I bought I think 50 of these charms a while ago and I keep looking at them thinking that either side is nice to show (one is more ornate than the other) but haven't really got round to using them!

The sentiment is a freebie from Cuddly Buddly and I've added some silver half pearls from my stash.  Stitching is all fake!

Sketch and Stash:  Sketch followed
Christmas Stampin' All Year Long:  Anything Goes
