Hello there!  This month over at the CCAYR blog our theme is 'Precipitation' soooo we are looking for snowflakes, rain, snow, icicles or even snowmen - use your imagination!   Anyway here's my mid-month reminder card and I used this lovely pre-coloured image from an LOTV Art Pad, all I did was add some Stardust Stickles to the snowflakes.  This little Christmas fairy has a basket and 'crown'  of pine, ivy and holly so I chose the same sort of dies for the embellishments on my card.

This is another card to go towards my Christmas 'stash'.
