Australian First Christmas

Edwin's looking a little glum on this card... I think it is the FIRST TIME EVER that I wish he had a little smile on his face :)
I assure you he's having fun... just sick and tired of waiting for that big Murray Cod to latch on! You can tell he's fishing in the river... note the murky coloured water at his feet :)

I got my Koala Cuddles stamp from ShopBron in the post yesterday... but instead decided to try and use stuff I already had to make an Australian Themed Christmas card for the Maggie Lovers Challenge. Now my papers aren't very Aussie - but there's no snowflakes, mistletoe or Saint Nicholas to speak of. Instead there's prancing deers (we do have these in Aus), spotted grass (?) and green and brown trees, there's plenty of them down the bush at the moment... if only these resembled Gums a bit more ;p
And it must be a nice warm day for Edwin to be dangling his toes.. just waiting for the yabbies to come for a nibble! Love Summer!!

This is of course for the latest family addition.. my little nephew who will be 2 months old Christmas Day, his father and big brother readily enjoy fishing and I'm sure he'll be going out to join them in no time.
I cut the letters with my new Quickutz Santa's Workshop dies - if you were bidding on them on eBay and lost in the last 3 seconds - SORRY! :)
