Sunday Sketch & Stamp #17

Hi girls. We are in the final approach now to the big day. The cards are all away, the pressies are all bought and the Christmas dinner is all in from M&S. The snow is lying although we haven't had any more today (Friday - this post is scheduled for just after midnight) and the estate is very icy. More snow forecast for Saturday and the possibility of a white Christmas is definately there. I'm beginning to get into the spirit.
Thank you so much for calling in here. Hopefully your find something to your taste. I made this card for Sunday Sketch & Stamp challenge where they gave us a great sketch to base our card on. Firstly I must apologise that because the light has been so bad up here I was forced to use flash when taking this photo. I hope it's good enough to give you an idea what the card looks like. I inked up a brand new Magnolia stamp "Blueberry Tilda" and coloured her using my Copic Ciaos. The papers are all fro Kars' Speciality Paper Pad and the flowers are handmade and other trimmings from my stash.

I really hope you like this card and I would definately appreciate any comment you might have time to leave for me. They are so helpful and it's great to know who has been to my blog. If you've never been before I will definately visit back. Please take care if you are under snow in your locality and have a great day crafting. Thanks for calling.

  5. Hi Fiona,
    Well, we have only seen about a centimetre of snow if that and that was over last night so at the moment we are OK lol, we live at the furthest point out on the east coast and so tend to miss alot of the weathers, that and contstant sea spray which I am sure melts it before it hits us lol.
    As for your card beautiful as always and I just love those papers very pretty and your new image is gorgeous.
    Have a wonderful Christmas.
