Sharing an Umbrella

You certainly need an umbrella here today, dark, gloomy and pouring with rain. Glad I'm staying in today. At Winter Wonderland this week Kate has challenged us to Be Different. This means either using a Christmas image for a non Christmas card or using a non Christmas image for a Christmas card. I chose the latter, using Rachelle Anne Miller's cute image Lily and Milo - Rainy Days. The image is coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers with glossy accents added to the umbrella and puddle to make it look like ice. Papers are MME and some other freebies, Cosy Christmas. I've been doodling again, added some MS punched glittery snowflakes, baker's twine and a snowflake charm. I discovered a challenge called Christmas challenges (with sketches) and I love this sketch as it has so many layers. You also have to use a charm and twine this week. I would also like to enter this into the challenge of sparkle and shine at Whoopsi Daisy, Cute and funky Christmas at My Mum's Craft Shop and Anything Goes at Delightful.

As you probably know Lili of the Valley challenges relaunches in January as Lili's little fairies and they have some fab candy on offer.

Over at Saturated Canary Krista is having a Christmas party and I have entered my 1000th post. The winning entry will be the one with the most votes. All you have do is hop over there and click like beside my entry, which is number 4. I would really, really appreciate it if you would vote for my card.

Thank you.
