Feathered and/or Furry Christmas :-)

Hi again :-) I am back with another post ,, this is a reminder that you still have a week to join us on the ABC Christmas Challenge :-) ,, my Christmas Card box is filling up nicely !! :-)

We are sponsored by Lili of the Valley and Bugaboo Stamps so please see the challenge blog for more details :-)

I used this very cute Partridge Tree image from Bugaboo. stamped on watercolour paper and coloured with my new Distress Markers and distress inks. I only have 6 markers but they are gorgeous and now NEED the whole set !! :-) The papers are from a Memory Box Yuletide pack and I inked all the edges with Vintage Photo. The flowers are made using Nellie Snellen Stamp and Emboss sets and a Martha Stewart frond leaf punch. I finished with some ribbon, glossy accents on the pears and Robins Nest Dew Drops in the centre of the flowers, the sentiment came with the stamp.

This is my first time making a card for the mid way reminder and Samantha hung these in the DT blog for me, ,,,, hehe Open-mouthed smile


Thanks for looking :-) I hope you all join in and just think,.. no last min panicking in December !!
