Eskimo Emily

Good morning to you, its very dark, wet and windy here in Blackpool this morning. I had a good day yesterday and managed to get some of my Christmas shopping done.  I bought my wrapping paper too and its my intention to wrap as I go along - we shall see!

Today over at Digital Delights it is Delightful Thursday when the DT show what they have come up with using Wendy's fabulous designs.  Here is my card:

I have used one of my favourite images Eskimo Emily available here from Digital Delights. She has been coloured with Copics and I added lots of Flower Soft to her trim and Liquid Pearls to look like snow.  The sentiment is from the Caroling Sentiment Set which is available here. I cut the sentiment out with a Spellbinders Ribbon Banner die and distressed it with Weathered Wood DI whilst still in the die.  The image has been cut and matted using Spellbinders Long Classic and Scalloped Rectangles with Weathered Wood to the edges.  Papers are First Edition Silent Night and I have used my favourite  Spellbinders Curved A2 Border.  The snowflake is a Marianne die and I have added Stickles to it and the trees are a Memory Box die.

Please go over to Digital Delights as there are some wonderful projects by the DT to see!  Also at Delightful Challenges a new challenge is starting today and the theme is Thankful sponsored by Robin's Nest.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

ABC Christmas Challenge - Winter Wishes
Crafting by Designs - Anything Goes with a Twist of Christmas
Divas by Design - Something Snowy
The House that Stamps Built - Snow Fun

Well that's it for me but I will be back later with my second post of the day! Thank you so much for looking, take care xx
