I'm Dreaming of a Pink Christmas

Good Morning to you and I hope you are all having a good week!  We had loads of fun yesterday when Max and Emma came round - sliding on the water slide and throwing water bombs! Today I am taking my Aunt out for lunch then I think we will go for an ice cream on the Sea Front at Fleetwood as it is such a lovely day!

Today is Delightful Thursday at the Digital Delights Blog and the Design Team have got some brilliant cards for inspiration!  Here is mine:

As soon as I saw this cutie I wanted to make a card for our friends in Texas!  They have about four flamingos around their pool so I knew this would make a perfect Christmas Card for them!  I have used the adorable Festive Flamingo available here from Digital Delights, the palm tree is from the Luau Accessories Set available here from Digital Delights and the sentiment is from Caroling Sentiments Set available here from Digital Delights. I have coloured the images with Copics and added Stickles and Glossy Accents so it looks like ice.  The holly is made with a CC Cutter die, the sentiment cut out with Lil' Inker Stitched Pennant and the Star Festoon banner is Whiff of Joy.

This week at
