LOTV #63 & Charisma Cardz #35 & CRAFT #66 & An Award


Hi Girls this is a long post warning - this one could take forever. Thanks for dropping in on me to see what is on offer today. I appreciate your time and interest.
The weather yesterday was horrendous - very strong winds and heavy rain - no more sitting out in the sun. Anyway I better get on with this post.
I made this card to enter it into three challenges. Lili of the Valley provided a wonderful sketch, Charisma Cardz wanted something inspired by a song (I chose "White Christmas") and CRAFT asked for something to do with "Man's Best Friend". I inked up LOTV's "Dropping the Shopping" and coloured it using my Copics Ciaos. I used two papers from My Mind's Eye's "I Believe" double sided series - "Berries" and "Trees". I also used Bazzil to mount. The embellishments were made using a Nestabilities Poinsettia set, a Snowflake set and two smaller Snowflake punches. Ribbons and pearls are from my stash. The sentiment was cut out using the 2nd smallest die from the Neastabilities No 4 Label set.
I hope you like this card enough to spend a little extra time to laeve a comment. You have no idea how much your comments mean to me. I value each and every one of them.

An Award from Belgium

I received this fantastic award from Martina at Martinas Kaartjes in Antwerp. She produces some beautiful creations and it would be well worth your time dropping over. Thank you so much Martina. the rules for this award are that I have to pass it on to 10 people so I have decided after a lot of thought to pass it on to the following blogging buddies. I have checked to try to ensure that none of them have it already.
Lynn at Crafty Linby
Lisa at Mess2Magic
Vicky at Kip's Cards
Sylvie at Gibmiss
Well that's it - I promise. Have a great day and enjoy whatever you are doing. Stay safe and Healthy.
Love and Hugs,
