Merry and Bright

Hello my crafty friends. I am here to share another Christmas card today and although the temperatures are slightly cooler than of late I don't think we will be getting snow and ice any time soon!! 



I used a sweet Marianne Designs stamp that I coloured with SN pencils to coordinate with the Nitwits papers. I made the poinsettia using a Cheery Lynn set and added a brad to match the papers and the seam binding bow finishes it off, that is apart from Glamour Dust snow of course!! 

I would like to enter the challenges that inspired me

I'm off to have a potter in the garden now, the weather may be dry but the weeds still seem to grow!!
Thanks for your continued support xx

  1. Oh my gosh Sarah, I love the way you coloured this image. Gorgeous layout and design... very cool the way you embossed around the image, it really makes it stand out. The white poinsettia is brilliant and gorgeous!
    I recently got the SN pencils and it's definitely a bit of a learning curve after the Copics. I'm going to keep at it though because I see some of you do fab colouring like this and it makes me more determined to master them.
