Big boots

Isn't it lovely and light here this morning with the clocks going back. Won't be so good when it gets dark earlier this evening though. It means a nice early start for me today. Washing done and ready to hang out then shower and off to visit some friends to deliver some ordered Christmas cards.

I've used this gorgeous Simply Sassy girl for my card today. She is coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers with loads of glitter on the fur. I used DI Broken China around the image. Aren't her boots fab. I tried a couple of different things for this card, rather than using all blue, I used some Dovecraft pink and blue paper for the backing paper and then everything else blue on top. The blue papers are DCWV Winter stack. I used the last of a piece of lace I bought at Ally Pally and after adding the strip add a small piece left which I used at the top rather like bunting. I always wrap my lac around and stick with tape before layering but as I only had this small piece left used PVA glue and it stuck it perfectly. I used an MS simple scalloped border punch and the old faithful snowflake punch with glitter card.
