A GIFT FROM SANTA

 I have a great admiration for so many crafters and have gained  much inspiration over the years and I am still learning new things. As always there are a few 'special' crafters that stand out, their creativity going just that bit farther I could make a list of them but I would be here all day.  

There is one crafter and long time blogging buddy that I am in awe of, her work just takes my breath away and always makes me wish that I had just one pinch of her talent, I have taken time to create the following card based on just a little of the techniques that I have picked up while visiting CHRISSY  

For my card I have used a 7" x 10" card base the image is from Hetty Clare, I have coloured it with Spectrum Noir markers, I have die cut branches, Poinsettia, trees, fences and snowflakes and the main oval die for the image, I have added some punched stars and embossed the sentiment with Sea Foam embossing powder, something I have not done for many years.  I then put everything together hoping that it shows just a little of what I have learnt from my mate Chrissy.



I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:


Many thanks for popping by.
