Merry Christmas my friend !


Happy Friday everyone ! Thanks for taking time out of your busy day to stop by and peak at my card. I made this for someone very special that works with me don't want to say her name in case she is peeking in here. I was planning on entering this card into 3 challenges however life got in the way and two of them have ended. I used the sketch from Friday Sketchers last week. At Just Magnolia they wanted anything Christmassy ! The challenge I will enter is Magnolia Down Under where they want Bedazzled. I have colored my image with copics. DP is Imaginisce "Polar Expressions". On the present and her stockings I have added some diamond stickles. Her little top knot on her hat and her gloves are done with "Polar white" flower soft. I cut the little border piece with my wishblade, distressed it with Antique Walnut distress ink, ran the ribbon through it which I had in my stash and added a little charm that my sweet friend Sharron gave when I was visiting her a couple of months ago.
Have a very Merry Christmas Season everyone I hope you have lots of treasured time with family and friends. There is nothing more special than the memories we make they are the most precious gift we can give !
Hugs,
