Sparkles Christmas DT card - Colour me Happy

Hi friends, hope you're all having a lovely weekend so far!
Well, the lovely weather didn't last long did it? We felt the cold yesterday enough to put the heating on!
And if the weather forecast is right we could even have some snow next week!!
Perfect weather for making something Christmas related for the new challenge
Yes, that's right....Christmas in April and the theme this time is Colour me Happy so we want to see your Christmas projects in your favourite colour! I had to go with red......I'm a big kid when it comes to Christmas
and red just makes me happy! And my fav style...easel cards!
We have 2 fantastic sponsors this month
What generous prizes.....thank you so much!
Don't forget you have a whole month to play, we'd love you to join us!
Pop over to Sparkles to link up and if you're low on ideas check out my fab teamies
