Christmas Kisses!

Good morning all. Thank goodness it's the weekend for two whole days! Lol! The sun is shining and it looks like a beautiful day here in West Yorkshire. I am ashamed to say that I have been so busy all week that I haven't once stepped foot in my craft room! I am hoping to remedy that today though! I just hope I can find my mojo!

I recently bought the cute Hope and Grace set by the Greeting Farm and couldn't wait to use them. I am not sure which is Hope and which is Grace though? Can anyone tell me?? I decided to use this little cutie to make a chritstmas card. I know there is not much christmassy about this image but I thought coloured in in christmas colours she looks quite festive! This is her christmas day outfit, she is all ready to open her presents and then eat some turkey! Lol! If you click on the picture for a closer look you may be able to see her sparkly shoes!

Materials:

Image: From the Hope and Grace set by The Greeting Farm. Coloured with Koh-i-noors and whispers pens

Paper: Dovecraft Ho Ho Ho pack

CS: From stash

Sentiment: Craftwork cards

Tools: Distress inks, sponges, nesties, x cut holly punch, white sakura gel pen

Misc: Adhesive pearl from papermania, red dew drops

Now as you probably know I usually use square card bases so this card LO was a bit of a challenge for me! A quick and simple card but I really like it! I hope you do too!

My Sugar Nellie DT kit landed on my post mat yesterday so that's what I'll be using this weekend! Make sure you head on over to funky kits and take a look at the new christmas releases from Mary Hall, Diane Duda and Leanne Ellis. They are available now but you'd better be quick as these cuties are sure to sell out fast!

Have a great weekend everyone and thanks for stopping by today!

Hugs, Vicky ~x~
