Noel

Hello my crafty friends and I hope this Wednesday finds you well. If not I hope you soon will be. 

The Wills family now have a Christmas tree and associated festive adornments scattered about the house so I am pleased about that!! Not sure why I felt the need to impart that information but hey ho!! I have another Christmas card to share today using one of Cuddly Buddly Kim's images.
If you've not visited the shop lately go take a look. She now has "real" stamps as well as digis, Marianne Designs stuff by the bucket load and everything you could possibly wish for!!


I coloured the happy little family with Pro/Flexmarkers to match the "not Christmas" papers (scraps from my mountain!!) and used a bit or silver mirri for a contrast. I impressed myself by not reflecting a selfie in the die cut stars!!

I have found a "few" Christmas challenges to play along with

Pretty layout, and a wonderful card. Glad you have your tree up & bits & pieces about. We may not reach that point...but at least those bloomin' lights are up outside!!! LOL. TFS & Hugs
