My first Christmas card..this year!

 Hi all of you crafting people!
Today it is a very terribly sad and incomprehensible day in our beautiful and beloved country, Norway ♥.
Life has, once again, proved to be very unpredictable and unfair!
 My thoughts go to all those people who are touched  by this great tragedy, and I encourage you all to light a candle together with the whole world, and remind all the victims ♥!.
RIP♥

 Today I've a Christmas card to share with you..my first one this year!
I’ll try to add more and more Christmas cards to my collection, so I,for the first time ever, maybe will be ready BEFORE the holidays.  That will makes me feel so relieved because having my holiday cards ready will free me up to use those precious weeks before Christmas for other activities., or just use the time to be with everyone I love.!
Anyway..this beautiful image is from Sweet Pea Stamps-from our new artist Anna Marina's Art collection, and she's called "Franceska",
and you can find her HERE on sheet 2, Plate 160!:)
I've coloured the image with Copic's.
And..again I made it a Joy Fold card, and all of the DP are from residual paper..and I'm feeling soo good when I use these!:)
  

Flowers from WOC, and snowcrystals made with M.S punches!


The beauty herself!
 I really love this images from Anna Marina, and her original artwork is absolutely GORGEOUS and you can see it HERE at the Sweet Pea Stamps Store along with the other 3 images, or as a single one!

I’m so happy to be able to add these to my collection – all ready for the holidays!:)
. Thank you for stopping by today, and all your very sweet comments!:)
Wish you a beautiful day..and Take good care of each other, and enjoy every day! 

Hugs from Ellen

Such a beautiful card, Ellen. And a wonderful idea to make a Christmas card with this image. Love it. I was so shocked when I saw in the news yesterday what happened in your country. Such a tragedy and so senseless. How can someone act like this and bring so much sadness over peoples... I cannot understand and will never. My heart goes out to all the peoples who are involved into this tragedy.
Hugs, Karina
