Eskimo Emily

Good morning everyone its another cold and frosty one here in Blackpool! Today sees the start of another new challenge at Delightful Challenges and the theme this week is:


anything with lots of bling and sparkle on - so get out your Glamour Dust, Stickles, gems etc and lets see what you come up with!  Here is  my card:

I have used the super adorable Eskimo Emily which is my absolute favourite from the new collection by Wendy and you can get her at Digital Delights here. She has been coloured with Copics and I have added Liquid Pearls for snow around her as you can't have an Eskimo without snow can you?  I have also added some True Snow for her to stand on and lots of Glamour Dust to the fur trim on her parka and boots.  The sentiment is also from Digital Delights from the Caroling Sentiments set available here.  I have cut it out with Lil' Inker Penant die and the image has been cut out with Spellbinders Floral Ovals die.  The papers are quite old 12 x 12 ones which I bought just loose from my local craft shop.  I have used Marianne Poinsettia die for the flower, all the bling is from my stash.

Our sponsor this week is:

And they will be giving the lucky winner a $15 certificate to their store!  Remember you do not have to use a Digital Delights image to enter but we love it so much when you do that you can count your entry twice!  Please go over to Delightful Challenges for some more inspiration from the talented DT.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp - What's your Favourite? (Mine is this image from Wendy's latest collection, my Floral Oval Die and of course my copics!!)
ABC Christmas Challenges - Y is for your favourite die (Floral Ovals)
Crafting for all Seasons - Green, Red and Sparkle
Inky Impressions - Use Something Old (My Papers are really old!!)
Whimsy - Festive
Bearly Mine - Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly - Snow White
Sweet Stamps - Sparkle and Bling

That's all from me for today - still no news on the baby front! Thanks for looking, stay warm and take care xx
