It's a lovely bright but cold day here today. Hope the weather is good where you are. I know from one of my blogging buddies, Christine in Canada that they have snow already. Brrrr. Welcome to my lovely new followers. If you haven't entered my candy yet then check out my candy page.
We had a lovely day shopping yesterday. The one hour free course on getting started with your I Pad was excellent and we decided not to wait but bought one. It is amazingly fast and so light and portable. So much better than our little netbook which we take away with us. It's fine for using Office but unbearably slow on the Internet. While I finished my coffee this morning I got out the I Pad and did some commenting. It was even faster than using the laptop. Still lots to learn on it though.
My card today is my DT card for Winter Wonderland where the challenge is to make a Winter Birthday cards preferably using Christmas scraps of paper. I used some DCWV Rose Tinted Christmas left over from last year and coloured this cute Nellie Snellen image with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. My image was a little large for the labels Nestie so I cut out the squirrel's tail. I really like this method of using Nesties. I distressed and inked the edges and added lots of glitter, lace, pins, flowers, pearls and rose leaves. The corner was cut with a Sizzix die, sentiment from Craftwork Cards.
