Still in the Christmas mood

I had to have a play with my new stamps now I've got motivated this is a stamp from The greeting farm they are so fun and as I had my R59 out at the time she just had to be dressed in red lol. I have tons of this Merry Christmas embossed card so figured I best use it. I stamped a few snowflakes with cloud white ink onto the base card just to give it a lift. Hope you like it.
