More Christmas!!

Morning all, how are we today, well the weather has turned pretty chilly here, I have even put a winter jumper on! BRRRR, Amelia asked to wear trousers to school too, so I think we have skipped Autumn here and gone strait into Winter! I cant believe they are still saying snow for us by the end of October, I so hope not! 

Well I am still lacking in every which way to want to do christmas this year, don't know where to start, so I thought I would take a trip to the local garden centre, well as I walked in it was Halloween.... mmmm I don't do halloween! Although they did have a very nice black cat that did have an appeal to him! 

mmmm and this is my christmas bug at the moment, not very happy at all! 

As I walked through there was a small christmas display, suddenly a 'warm tingle' struck me, if you can call it that, then suddenly in my head i started to sing 'its beginning to look at lot like christmas'.... then it was over..... the reality struck and its not really there... where is the christmas bug - the happy smiley flutterby?


Well I have made one other card though, using the beautiful fairy from LOTV again! Very similar to the last one, but i 'inked' the card blank to try and look like sky, looking at it now, it looks like I have used two different inks, but they are both the same, I think it may be down to the paper I used for stamping! 


Here she is up-close again, I do love her, she looks so amazing when she is coloured up and I am very impressed with my self on the colouring on this occasion! You can also see where I have added stickles around the edge of the die cut shape.


Again I used stickles and liquid pearls to add a 'look of snow falling' to the side of the card. 


I would like to enter this card to the following challenges;

Lady Bugs Craft - No Design Papers
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Sweet Stamps - Anything Goes
Try it On Tuesday - Make it Minimal 

Well I hope you like here again! I would love to hear when you think if you have the time!
