Spoon Full of Sugar - Challenge 71 Christmas


My entry to the SFOC challenge to make a Christmas card. I bought the Nestabilities labels 4 dies at Ally Pally on Sunday and wanted to have a go with them. The papers are from the Jolly Holidays digi set that came on the CD with Complete Cardmaking Magazine. (I've got a few cards in there btw.) I've blinged up the papers with stickles and a Stardust pen. The image is a from Digi Stamp Characters - an Etsy shop. She looks just like I feel when I have to be out in the cold lol. I put fun flock on her furry bits and she's coloured with Copics. I think this needs a sentiment but can't decide on one so if you have any suggestions let me know.

Julie this is so adorable, fabulous colours, colouring and papers. Awww - was my response when I saw the gorgeous image, she looks so windswept and cold.
My sentiment - "Baby it's Cold Outside"!! Then I can never think of sentiments - you'll notice most of my cards don't have one - sadly.
hugs Heather xx
