3rd September 2011

Well I hope everyone is ok today and enjoying their weekend.  I have decided to go back to Christmas again (just can't keep away - don't know what I'll do in January). I've made quite a big card for me today as I usually do 6 x 6 but the image I have used was too big once I had put a frame round it so I have made a 8 x 6.  I was going to add its amazing what you can get on those extra 2" of card but, in fact, I seemed to have put on less than usual!

The stamp is a LOTV image which I have coloured with copics.  The sentiment is from Cuddly Buddy on a Nestie shape.  The papers I have used are from a Dovecraft "Back to Basics" pad and the gingham paper is Pink Petticoat download.  The lacey die is a Marianne and the snowflake die is a Whimsy one. I have highlighed the fur trim with a mixture of True Snow, Glamour Dust and Flower Soft - talk about overkill!  I have added a bit of True Snow to the ground but you can't really see it - trust me its there!!  I will enter this card in the following challenges:

Alphabet Challenge - P is for Pretty Pastels
Clearly I Stamp - Patterned Paper
Jellypark Friends - Use Punches/Die cuts
Thank you for looking, please leave a comment its nice to know you have been and I can visit you, take care x
