Hi all, I want to apologise for my absence this week in Blogland, apart from having computer problems, which still have not been fully resolved, I have been unwell.  I will be playing catch up tomorrow as I have missed you all so much.
I have had some wonderful news to share with you the first is that I won the challenge over at ABC Christmas Challenge secondly I have just found out that I have also won the main candy prize from Kitty I feel so blessed and very lucky.
I have made this card to enter into the following challenges:
I have used a stamp from one of my Christmas Morehead stamp sets this one is called BAUBLE, I stamped her with Momento Black Tuxedo Ink and coloured her with promarkers, I doodled the frame around the image then mounted her onto both red card then silver mirri card. I added glitter to her halo and the bauble, I used Red Crystal Lacquer for the berries and Glossy Accents on the wings and bauble also on some of the baubles on the bp.
The bp is Papermania called Home for Christmas, all have been mounted onto silver mirri card, finally my recycled piece is the sentiment. I have a bag full of old Christmas bits and pieces this particular one is from a Christmas Cake it has the two notches on the rear to stick into the icing.  I knew they would come in handy sometime.
I look forward to seeing you all tomorrow, until then take care.
