New from All Dressed Up Stamps - Christmas Hair Do


Today it's the turn of the Facebook DT to share some more inspiration using some of this month's gorgeous new All Dressed Up digi stamps.  

You can find the Facebook group here.

For my card I've used the very cute 'Christmas Hair Do' digi which you can find here in the Etsy shop.
