Happy weekend to you all, hope you have something nice planned! We were going to do some Christmas shopping today the plan was to get off early to the shops but I thought we are retired why bother fighting the crowds on a Saturday when we can go during the week???? So a nice lazy day today I think!!
Here is my card, another Christmas one!!
Mmm I think the picture is somewhat crooked lol!! I have used Holly Berry which is a digital from Rick St Dennis I love his art but have never got any until I saw Lorraine use one the other day on her blog Mrs B's Blog and so I decided to get a few - thanks Lorraine for the inspiration! I used one of the sketches from Papertake Weekly for the layout. I coloured her with Copics and Prisma pencils and I actually used a hand held magnifying glass to colour her so it took quite a while! I cut her out with SB Floral Ovals. The papers are all from Teresa Collins' Christmas Home pad. The sentiment is from Pink Petticoat cut out with Lil' Inker die. The holly is cut using a C.C. Designs die. I think why it looks so crooked is that I used the straightener in my photo editor for the top which has made everything else look wonky IRL its not crooked - honest!! I was going to give this to my husband but I think I will give it to my ex-husband as he has gone through a bit of a rough patch lately and hopefully it will cheer him up.
I would like to enter the following challenges:
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes (I used sketch 72)
