Good morning to you all, hope you are fine this Monday morning and ready for the week ahead. I can't believe that I won the Epson printer that Donna from Bearly Mine Crafts was giving away as candy, I almost choked on my coffee when I saw I had won it - a massive thank you to Donna!!
We had a nice weekend and it just seems to fly by. Just three full weeks left before Christmas week how are you all doing with your preparations? I have got most of my presents - just a couple left - so this week I will be wrapping and posting the ones of to the States that I need to. I am trying to make a few really lightweight cards for posting, I will give out by hand the heavier more embellished ones!
Here is a card I have made for today using the sketch from Papertake Weekly:
Those cute little deer are by October Afternoon, I stamped them and then masked them and added the trees which are a Hero Arts stamp. The images have been coloured with Copics and chalk for the background. I have added some Stickles to the bells on the deer and the stars on the tree just not sure if you can see it in this picture. The papers are by October Afternoon from the Make it Merry pad. I have cut and matted the image with SB dies. The deer is a Tim Holtz die and it has been covered with some Pink Petticoat Jingle Bells Script paper in Crimson and edged with Distress Ink in Fired Brick. The foilage is a Marianne die, the ribbon from stash and the brad is October Afternoon.
I would like to enter the following challenges:

That's all for me for today. Thank you so much for looking, please leave a comment so I know you have been! Take care xx
