To Someone Special


I do hope you are having a splendid weekend, I'm feeling much happier now that my Dad is well on the way to recovery.

As I'm still away from home and my own stash, I'm continuing to raid Dad's stash as I need to get on with my Christmas cards for this year. 

For today's card I used another of the adorable Lili of the Valley Christmas stamps - 'Dropping the Shopping' - I just love these stamps, they are too cute for words! 

I coloured the image with Promarkers and added Stardust Stickles to her hat and coat trim, cut her out with a set of labels 10 nestie dies then added this to a layer, cut with a slightly larger die from the same set, from purple pearl card then embossed.  The papers were a digi download from Cuddly Buddly and the snowflake ribbon created with a Martha Stewart punch.  The flowers were made using large and small Nellie Snellen cut & emboss punch sets from white pearl card and coloured with Promarkers.  Sentiment from Lili of the Valley stamped with purple ink.

Til next time - Happy Crafting!
