Let it Snow

Morning all, well it's the weekend and the sun is shining! Best get the washing out whilst I can! Lol! I am feeling much better now, almost back to normal and last night was the first night that I did not wake up coughing and splutering, I slept all the way through! Progress!


Well enough about me and my ailments, onto today's card. I couldn't wait to ink up this little cutie. She's from the new Country Cousins Christmas range from Sugar Nellie and is called 'Winter Wonderland'. A litte tricky to colour in the umberella and scarf {I use koh-i-noor pencils but those of you who use copics/promarkers will be fine!}, but otherwise a dream to work with, such good value! You probably can't tell onto the photograph but I added white flock to the trim of her coat to give it a faux fur feel. I am entering it into this weeks Cute Card Thursday challenge where they want to see a charm on your project. I have lots of gorgeous charms from The Hobby House but rarely use them, so this was the perfect opportunity to get them out!

Materials:

Image: Winter Wonderland available here from Sugar Nellie. Coloured with Koh-i-noors and Sansodor

Paper: Basic Grey Wassail

CS: from stash

Sentiment: Craftwork Cards

Tools: distress inks, sponge, nesties, snowtex to create snow effect on image

Misc: Gingham ribbon, adhesive pearls from stash. Snowflake charm fom The Hobby House

Well thanks for stopping by today. Leeds Rhino's v St Helens tonight in the Rugby Grand Final so keep your fingers crossed for us!! Come on you Rhino's!!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, enjoy the sunshine!

Hugs, Vicky ~x~
