Christmas gifts


Yesterday I spent most of the day crafting and this is one of the cards I made. I have been making a lot of simple 5" cards too so that I can have a range of priced cards for sale. Most of them won't be on my blog as they are fairly simple cards. In amongst making the quicker smaller ones I took time out and made this one, my more usual style,  hand coloured 6"x 6" card.

Mediu - Copics and sakura blue star and clear star pens
Papers - Nitwits Woodland Wishes
Seam binding and ribbon - Crafty Ribbons
Wooden snowflake painted with white acrylic paint and heat embossed with shabby blue frantage
Pearls

Challenges
Winter Wonderland Anything Christmas 
TTCD Anything goes
  Sweet Stampin' Christmas in August 
Sparkles Christmas Snowflakes

Day off today. Facial and massage followed by lunch with a friend so catch you later.
