Dreaming of Snow
This is officially my very first Christmas card and can you believe that we are already halfway through the year?!?!  OMG...It flew did it not!?  
So this will be my very first Christmas card of the year.  I have made a promise to get started early this year, especially since my numbers of family and friends have increased!!  :)  My card today, is using the beautiful image by Jaqueline Hill: Cardinal Pair I colored these beauties with my Copic Markers and the background with distress inks.  I tried to give is nightly glow. with a light snowfall!
