Christmas Cheer

Good morning - another scheduled post from me fingers crossed it works!  Today sees the start of the last monthly challenge for 2013 over at A Little Bit Crafty.  The theme for this month is Christmas Cheer.  Here is my card:


I have used the gorgeous Partridge in a Pear by one of our sponsors Eureka stamps which is available here.  I coloured the image with Copics and used Twinkling H2Os for the background to add sheen, which you can probably see better in this close up:


The papers are Nitwits Woodland Wishes.  I have used a Dienamics border die.  The tag is made using Cheery Lynn Tags 2 and the sentiment is from Clearly Besotted.  I added Martha Stewart glitter to the Card Candi in the corners.  Here is another view:


We have some fabulous sponsors this month:


Prize to be Confirmed

7 Free Digis



Please go over to A Little Bit Crafty to see what the rest of the DT have done there are some stunning projects as always! Remember you have almost a month to join in and you can make anything it does not have to be a card!

Thank you so much for looking! I will announce the winner of my Blogaversary Candy tomorrow when I get home - sorry for the delay I didn't realise I would be away when I set it up! Take care xx
