94 Days.... Thats not enough!!!

Morning all, well it has to be said, there is only 94 days until Christmas.... That means I need to be making 3 cards every day to make sure they are all done, now i'm sure its not going to be that bad, its just I NEED to find the bug! I have loads of bit half done and some are for Amelia for school so she can do them... 

Well I have managed to do one in the past couple of days but I am finding that I am becoming somewhat critical about what i do an how i'm doing it, I never find my stuff good enough, but then again I did have someone run up to me in Tesco this morning and tell me they need cards for their wife. So from now on... what i create is what it it, it will never be to everyones taste, but i have made it and that is that... OK lets get on with what i'm here for! 


Ok so this stamp is from the Whiff of Joy set- Come let us Adore him,, I had been looking for it for ages and came across it on e-bay, I believe it is available from Simon Says Stamp - I love this set, I love Whiff of Joy Stamps!!! They are lovely to colour!  I used a charm from my stash and the twine is from Crafty Emma's I thought its FAB for christmas!!! 


I have coloured him using my copics, I watched a you tube video from MIC about creating folds and creases in images, it was completely by accident that this has turned out the way it has, I coloured it in about 20 mins, while hubby watched the end of the bikes! I was so happy with him I couldn't stop smiling and I had to share it with a  few people! 


I wanted to used a different sentiment but it didn't look right so I used one from Lili of the Valley, I punched it out and then ran it through my cuttlebug embossing folder! I ten dabbed the top with tim holtz distress ink! 

Well I was quite happy with the way it turned out, I dread to think how many more i need to make, so on that not i would like to enter this card to the following challenges;
