Whoops!!

Monday again, where do the weekends go?!! Anyway before I toddle off to work I have another Christmas card to share with you using one of the fabulous Hobby House art books.


I used Promarkers to colour the poor clumsy chap and you can see the sparkle on this close up a bit easier...





...don't study it too closely though as the markers did bleed a little :0(

I used a stamp from a 
Chocolate Baroque set, Christmas Magic
 (Asha "made" me buy it!!)







The papers are Dovecraft Krafty Christmas and the twine and snowflake charm are from my stash.

I'm playing at these challenges

Crafters Cafe #86 - Use an image with a hat
Holly Jolly - Snowman Fun
Polkadoodles #42 - Christmas Fun
Christmas CArd Challenges #47 - Took inspiration from the snowman
Christmas Cards All year Round - Embellish it (twine & charm)

Here's wishing you a good week xx

LOL..if I had a penny for every time someone 'made' me buy something... That's a hoot. I was just stalking your blog and drooling over your ever fabulous coloring and came across this precious little klutz and fell in love. This is a WONDERFUL card. Just the perfect combination of the best colors and the sparkles and those little berries on the tree. A sensational Christmas card. :)
