CHNC challenge extra for January mid-month

I'm wondering how it can possibly already be nearly halfway though January, but it is time for our mid-month inspiration for CHNC challenge extra for January 2016. If you click on the link you will see the wonderland designs by ladies on the DT which are indeed an inspiration - I hope that you will want to join us by making Christmas creations - yes, I know it's early in the year, but it saves the panic towards the end of the year. And besides that ... I love making Christmas cards!

If you have been inspired to come and join us with your entries ... and many thanks to all you wonderful crafters who have already joined in ... please click here for the January post with the linky for your entries .

For my card I used Charmed cards and crafts Dottie and George Christmas downloads (I bought a set of these - and many more besides - but I haven't used any of these for a long time ... I do love them). I decided to keep the background quite clean apart from the offcut of blue card and the silver glitter strip. The image has been matted on to a Kanban topper and three Hobbycraft snowflakes added - these are rippled, which doesn't show up here.
