Hello everyone, hope you are staying warm and cosy.
Boy, was it frosty here this morning (mind you it is silly o'clock when I get up!!), so frosty that Surprise refused to go out first thing, so I ended up mucking out twice!
Still it's good exercise and saves on the heating oil!
I am very excited to be sharing this card as I was a very lucky girl and won Sammy Jean's Blog Candy last week. She sent me this lovely James stamp AND an enormous bundle of paper goodies, tons of embellishments and ribbons!! So thank you again Sammy for your generosity xx
This is what I made using James.
He was coloured with my Promarkers and I distressed the background using my tumbled glass ink pad. I added some flowersoft to suggest fur trim on his hat and added some little dots of Viva decor pearl. I was brave and actually "used" some of my Silent Night pad (that's three sheets cut into now!!) and matted it onto silver mirri board. This card will be hand delivered so I didn't spare the flowers (ivory beaded berries, rose, cosmo daisy and sweetheart blossom) or pearl stems this time!!
