Christmas Star and candy winner

Its been a lovely sunny day here today so we went out and had a walk at the coast. I know the sun was shining but it was still cold. It is only February after all. The sun seems to go to some people's heads as I saw a few people looking ridiculous in shorts and T shirts. They must be hardier than me as I had a hoodie and my Winter coat, hat and gloves on still.

So, onto my card which features a gorgeous Pink Gem image, edged with DI worn lipstick and coloured with Promarkers I went for a darker brown teddy for a change, using walnut, cocoa, cinnamon and caramel. I've actually managed to use the last of my Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses papers. I've doodled a border on the background paper and image too. As much as I loved this pack it was so satisfying to actually finish a paper pad. I've used an MS holly border punch, some tartan ribbon and some star buttons tied with wire.
Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Ribbon and/or charm
A Gem Great sketch
Simon Says Use 3 designer papers
My Mum's Craft Shop Buttons and ribbons
Basic Grey Wish upon a star

I've not been feeling too good today again so I am really hoping the doctor gets those blood test results tomorrow.

Oops, nearly forgot, the winner of my £10 Abi's Craft candy is ................

Congratulations Katina. Please e-mail me and I'll send you the voucher code.
