28 Jul 2013


Hi all, yesterday we had rain and lots of it it was heaven, lol, the grass and flowers really did need that drink of nectar as they were all dying, the grass is mostly brown with big cracks in the earth, it is also cooler thankfully.
I decided to make another Christmas card this time using one of the images that I won at Gem of a Challenge this is 'Jodie With Gift'.  
I have coloured her with promarkers as this is an 8 x 8 card, when I printed the image off it was much larger than I had thought it was, my fault not the image, I had changed the settings on MCS from cms to inches, silly me, I mounted the image onto pink cardstock, the base card is a sort of holographic star card, the squares of paper are some more that I found from years back, I added some pink angel hair effect ribbon topped with thin satin silver ribbon, bow and snowflake charm, I added some Debbie Moore glitter to the image in her hair and cheeks as well as the pom poms on her scarf and the ribbon on her gift, the sentiment is from Hunkydory finally I punched some snowflakes.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
I would like to thank everyone who has visited me and left such wonderful comments you really do make me feel a little bit special.  
I hope that you all have a lovely Sunday.
