X-mas greetings

We've had such warm and wonderful weather here lately so I guess I am suffering from sunstroke - since I ended up making a X-mas card today *lol*.
We have spent almost the whole day at the beach - swimming, playing some beach soccer and of course - just enjoying the sunshine and a nice ice-cream. I decided to make this card -our evening BBQ. I guess I needed something more than just a cool drink to cool off ;-)
I know that many of you are making X-mas cards all year round - and that's great - because I know that you then will be ready when X-mas is here. I always think of doing that myself, but there is always something in the way - at least I have this one now...hihi.....

Anyway - back to the card. I had not coloured little Alicia from my very first Anki's Sweethearts serie - so she had to be my main image. Coloured her with my copics and used the wonderful DPs from Basic Grey. Added a sentiment from my SU kit and cut out some snowflakes with my punch and added a snowflake charm. Oh - I almost forgot - I added flowersoft to her coat and on the ground.
It was very fun to make a X-mas card this early. Now I am ready for a refreshing shower - it's steeming hot inside as well and something more to drink.
Kramis and hope you all have had a wonderful weekend as well.
