Hi there folks, happy Monday to you. I am being a terrible blogger at the minute, I am so sorry that I've not managed to visit anyone recently, I feel so awful but so much to do, busy at work and lots of family stuff too. I've hopefully got Wednesday off to start my Christmas shopping though - it'll be here before we know it!
This is our new and fabulous sketch at Sketch N Stash Challenges, designed by our lovely Doreen, and as we're being sponsored by Lili of the Valley for this challenge, the DT and I have used some gorgeous LOTV images for our cards. LOTV are giving the lucky winner of our challenge, a fab £10 voucher to spend with them so come and join in our challenge!
I bought this Xmas image, Twinkling Star, at Ally Pally in October, along with a few other seasonal images! I swore that I wouldn't buy any more Xmas images, but I loved the ones I bought, and this challenge was the perfect carrot to make me show them some ink!
I've coloured her with my promarkers and then added white embossing to the falling snow and the ground. I like the way that the specks of embossing powder that stuck where it wasn't supposed to have given her a sprinkly, snowy halo around her- you can just pick this up below. I've also added some glitter to her fur trim and spica glitter to the stars although this hasn't really shown in my pics.
You can see the gorgeous glitter in the pic below.
I tried to sort through my Christmas stash and put it in some sort of order, and most of my papers were scraps from the sort out. I think there's some PaperArtsy, HOTP and My Mind's Eye in there but I can't be certain!! I've used more of the gorgeous Memory Box Star of Wonder die cuts, the ribbon is from stash and the tiny star and sentiment are from PaperTrey Ink.
The rest of the SNS team have made some awesome cards to show you so take a look at them here.
I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
The Crafty Pad - Christmas
Fussy and Fancy - Feeling Blue ( I hope it's blue enough!)
Cute Card Thursday - Starry, Starry Night
My Mum's Craft Shop - Winter Wonderland
