Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas....

Hello and welcome to my blog!

42 days left until Christmas! Where has the year gone????

So I've got for you.... another Christmas card!!!! This time is girlie, in purples and pinks.

I used a digital Wee Stamp that I got a few weeks ago, she looks so warm and cosy with her scarf and ear warmers! The sentiment is my own, I'm starting to make my own sentiments and playing around with different fonts. The sentiment is based on one of my favourite Christmas songs, "Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas" sang by Judy Garland and a lot of people since then.

The papers I've used this time are from the "Somebunny to Love" paper pad (snowy purple); the Love Letters by First Edition (stripes paper) and from scrap. 

I used a few of my tools to embellish  the card: the Marianne Creatables frame die cut behind the image; the Joy crafts Snowflake die cut and I used the Sizzix framelits scallop circle for the image.

I used my Promarkes to colour the sweet image:

For the hair: Sandstone, Buttermilk and blender pen.
For the face: Sandstone, Vanilla and Blossom
For the clothes: Amethyst, Lilac, Orchid, Maroon, Pink Carnation, Blossom, Apple and Leaf Green.
For the holly: Moss, Pear Green, Antique Pink and Poppy.

And it wouldn't be a Christmas card without glitter! I used glitter glue for the snow, the fairy wings, the ear warmers and I put a bit on the big purple rose. 

The flowers are by Wild Orchid Crafts, the purple glitter ribbon is by Dovecraft Tea Party collection, the rhinestones, brads and lace are from local shops.
