Blonde Girl's Christmas card (Hannah Lynn image)

Hi Crafty friends,

Here's my last card today and this one was created using a lovely image from Crafts and Me (the artist is Hannah Lynn). I have coloured this image quite a few times with different hair/eye combinations but this is the first time I have used her on a Christmas card. 

I have also used some "Berry" pearls, part of a fence and part of a Chloe flourish from Flourish with a Bling who are having a 50% off sale this month. The Chloe flourish comes in 9 gorgeous colours including antique gold which is my personal favourite. 

Flourish with a Bling have a 50% off sale all throughout December, everything is half off!! I hope you'll check out our website as we have our own unique products and we post worldwide. Please email if you would like rough estimates of shipping, if we can send it as a large letter we will or perhaps get your friends to all buy too and share the postage!
