Clementine

Hello lovely people, I know, it's been a week and I have no real excuse for not being here except...life!! Anyway, here I am and I have a Christmas card to share that is suitable for some current challenges.


This is Clementine (The Stamp Fairy now retired but who first appeared here) coloured with Promarkers to match the pretty papers which, I think, are from a First Edition set ( an EBAY taster pack). I was so pleased with this one and the white gel pen made such a difference.

I'm off to try my luck at these challenges

Crafty Friends #24 - Animals/Birds
Critters and Creatures - Anything Goes with a creature
Crafts Galore Encore - Use a digi or stamp (digi)
ABC Challenge - A for animals
Passion For Promarkers #331 - Show us your favourites...Promarkers, digis and paper

Thank you for visiting and your comments are always greatly appreciated.

Until next time xx

When I saw your card in some challenges, I had to stop by and say "HI!" I have some Clementine images from Stamp Fairy, but sadly not this one. I love the layout you used on this too. Have you checked out any of Craftyhazelnut's challenges? This card would be perfect to add to all of them, I'm pretty sure! I'm a DT member for her Christmas Extra challenge, and I would love to see this card in that gallery too! Anyway, I totally love this card...I'll have to dig out one of my Clemmy images soon! :)

Hi Sarah,
what a brilliant card, and that image is wonderfully coloured too.
Love those fab papers as they match so well with your image as well.
Yes you are right life does get in the way, and blogging has to take a back seat, but that's how it should be.
Have a wonderful weekend.
Looking forward to seeing your tissue box.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Well this is a popular post! Not surprised really as it's a lovely card. You'll be pleased to hear Merlot isn't as bad as the cat on my card, mind you the corner of a divan bed did cop it, but I managed to hide that for ages with a big overhanging duvet! Jx

Pia S said...

How adorable! Love the layout, the non traditional colors and image, but you've managed to make it Christmasy still. Great job!

Marie B. said...

Hey Sarah! I just wanted you to know that I CASE'd your card, and I'm gonna link back to your post in mine, OK? Thanks for the inspiration! :)

What a sweet image, Sarah. And you found the PERFECT patterned paper! Love this card.
