Charisma Cardz #37 & MAWTT #64


Hi girls. Thank you so much for calling into my little blog today, I am really pleased to have you here. I know it takes up valuable time and I appreciate you making the effort and I hope you find something here that appeals to the eye. I hope everything is well in your world and that you have been enjoying your crafting time.
I made this card to enter into two challenges. Charisma Cardz gave us a fabulous sketch to follow and Moving Along With the Times (MAWTT) had a "Christmas" theme. I used another new stamp from Joanna Sheen, Giordana's "Wonderful Christmas". These were a surprise gift from my hubby - he's can be very thoughtful sometimes. He bought me three so I still have another to use - watch this space. The design paper is Basic Grey's "Eskimo Kisses - Snowglove" and I used some silver card and green Bazzil. I coloured this using my Copic Ciaos. I used a Sizzlets "Poinsettia" to produce three flowers and embossed the edges with partial success and coloured them with my Copics. I used plenty glitter which never seems to come out well in photographs and everything else is from my stash.
I hope you like this card and would love to hear your views is you have an extra minute to leave a comment. I love hearing from you.
Enjoy your day and stay safe and healthy.
Love and hugs,
