Papertake Weekly...Sketch #23

Happy Thursday everyone...this week has been a bit of a blur and to be honest I can't wait for the weekend so that I can have some serious 'me' time and also get my chaotic house in some sort of's been driving me mad this week with clutter keep appearing everywhere...blimming untidy kids lol!

I've another Christmas card to show you today...I have followed Dawny's sketch over at Papertake Weekly and I loved this sketch because it didn't require too much effort from my two 'teeny weeny' brain cells to rub together lol! The image is a fantastic freebie from Pollycrafts, she is called 'Cherry Kisses Snowball' and she is one gorgeous gal! I've coloured her with Promarkers and she has been matted onto some apple green and red card stock and I have also added glamour dust to the fluffy bits on her clothing! The design papers came on a free CD with Complete Cardmaking magazine and I love the combination of colours on them! The sentiment was created on the PC and I used a MS snowflake punch and added some card candy to finish off!

That's all for today folks...hope you have a fab day :) TFL!

Hi Donna

A gorgeous Christmas card.

Your image colours and backing papers match so perfectly and I love the sparkle you have added.

Don't talk to me about chaos .. .. .. I seem to be stuck in it permanently at the moment - but there is light at the end of the tunnel - in about 3 weeks time!!! LOL!!

Take care

Love Jules xx

Hi Donna,
I seemed to have fallen off the earth these last few days, haven't I?
I've started that dreaded fall cleaning and disappeared into the piles of clutter! lol
But I'm back in blogland now to see what you've been up to!!!
This is adorable, as it that sentiment!!!
Love the distressing and sparkle! 'Cherry' cute!
Blessings, Maria
