Hi everyone! This is the first Christmas card for my stash for 2011.  The image is a digi image, Mollie Mittens Christmas,  from Tickled Pink Stamps.  The blue and orange papers are a freebie from Bearly-Mine Designs ( I LOVE her papers). The orange paper is from a kit cb CRelly. The doily is from JoAnns and I colored it with Distress ink.  The flowers were white and sprayed with home made glimmer mist.
