A Pink Magnolia Christmas

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!!! NOT, but who can resist making Christmas Cards with this adorable image. I love making Christmas cards. And pink Christmas cards are one of my favorite. So what I have here is an easel card with a pocket. Notice I had to make some Pink snowflakes. Wouldn't that be cool if there were really pink snowflakes. Of course, you know you have to watch out for yellow snow....lol But pink would be OK !!!And isn't this just darling. A little tag just popped right out of that pocket.
And here's a close up of this really sweet skating couple. I have been practicing and practicing with my Copic markers. I am so excited, I am going to be taking some classes real soon. I am ready to come back an expert. I love my copic markers and consider that one of the best investments I made in this craft to date!

Here is my easel card and envelope. I used Spun Sugar distress ink on the die cuts. I had so much fun making this card. I can't wait to make another pink one again real soon. Thanks for dropping in for a visit. I appreciate it. I will see you soon!

I like pink Christmas cards, too! This is soooooo sweet. I like the sparkly details you included in your closeup pic. I've been thinking about getting a start on Christmas cards. It's not that far away!
