Ho Hum

Hello and I hope you are having a lovely weekend. We are having a quiet one, did some shopping this morning first thing and then some crafting and once I have posted this we are going to go for a walk.

I have done a DT card and should really have done another but I have been struggling with my mojo so had a look at some challenges and decided to do a card for some challenges instead!  Thought it was time I started to do the odd Christmas card too!

I have used this cute Ladybug Crafts Ink this would be great for my sister for Christmas she has a Japanese Spitz which looks a bit like that, she also has a Papillon though (could pretend its wandered off lol).  I coloured the image with Copics and used StarDust Stickles and Liquid Pearls.  Cut the image out using Spellbinders Labels 18.  The papers are Nitwits Still Joyful and sentiment is Pink Petticoat cut out using a Lil' Inker pennant die.  The snowflake is a Spellbinders die and I love that big gem!

Challenges I would like to enter:

Mojo Monday - Sketch
Creative Craft Cottage - Colour Palette
Christmas Cards All Year Round - Sparkle and Bling
Crafty Hazelnuts - Christmas
Sparkles - Christmas in July
Winter Wonderland - Anything Goes for Christmas
Simon Says Stamp - Sparkle

Thank you so much for calling by today! An extra big thank you if you manage to leave a comment I know how time consuming they are, take care xx
