Cards for all seasons

Good morning my friends. I hope the sun is shining on you! The weekend is nearly here again ... another week flown past it'll be Christmas before we know it :))- only another 214 sleeps to go!
Our challenge at Delicious Doodles this week is 'All Seasons in One Day' so I thought I'd make my first Christmas card this year, nothing like being prepared!  although I probably won't get around to making any more until November!!!!
I used one of Teri's fabulous scenic images , On a Winters Day, to make my card. I printed the lovely scene 3 times, and used dies to cut out the centres of two of them, then mounted them together using sticky pads to give some added dimension. I then printed just the little couple in the foreground, cut them out and stuck them on the top. Lots of frosted lace stickles,  a die cut tree and a computer generated greeting complete the card. I quite like the end result!
Please take time to visit the Delicious Doodles Challenge Blog and check out the lovely creations from the rest of Team A! We'd love to see what you create too!
Thanks for taking the time to look.
Happy Friday!
