Happy Christmas Hubby and DT call news

Had a good day out today. M&S was very busy but we managed to get what we needed so only the fresh vegetables and bread left to buy on Friday and Christmas is all sorted. This is the card I made for Hubby. It's another 8" square card like yesterday's post. Love making this size card, so much scope for embellishing. I bought the LOTV stamp especially for his card as he loves Christmas pudding. I don't think I shall be dressed like this on Christmas Day though, lol! I've coloured it with Promarkers and Flexmarkers and used a Sakura gold star pen. The first one I started colouring ended up in the bin as I was colouring the chair and realised the bit I was colouring was the wall! Don't you hate that when you sometimes can't work out which bit you are meant to colour. Once the image is coloured it is usually obvious but it looks so different in black and white. I tried using the blender pen but it looked a bit messy so had to start again.


I've distressed the edges and used DI worn lipstick and Vintage Photo on the sentiment. The banner is K&Co, Marianne die cut pine branch and poinsettia, Woodware holly leaves, card candi and baker's twine. When I bought the wonky square Nesties in America I wasn't sure about them but I am really liking them as they are a little different.
