2 More Sleeps !!

Hi Everyone,

Yep only 2 more sleeps until the big everyone ready ??
Food shopping today for the fresh bits you have to leave until the last minute to get, hopefully it won't be too manic but I think that's probably wishful thinking Lol

Anyway I have another Christmas card to share with you today,

I used LOTV's 'James wrapped in Tinsel' digi stamp for this card coloured with my new Illustrator pens, I love these pens and they have a lovely brush nib but I need more practise, I have tried to make James look 'furry' but it hasn't turned out quite how I hoped. I used some sparkle gel pen on the tinsel and baubles which you can just about make out in the pic I think.....really sparkly in real life though !
Matted onto Kraft card and some Trimcraft paper that was free in a magazine. The lovely sentiment is LOTV I love the font on these sentiments and the snowflake die is Clearly Besotted.

I still have a few Xmas cards to share with you but just in case I don't manage to get back before the big man in the red suit arrives I would just like to wish all of my lovely blog friends a truly wonderful Christmas, hope you get everything you want from Santa ;) lots of crafty goodies hopefully and to say thank you for sticking with me this year as I know I have been a pretty rubbish blogger but I promise to try harder next year !

Big Hugs,
Kaz xx

Santa Claus is Coming to Town !

Hello Everyone,

Well I think I am finally catching up with everything, Presents still to wrap and a couple more cards to make (hubby's and my in-laws) and probably a few more tags but phew other than that I think we are sorted !
I know I'm not alone in saying every year...Next year I am going to be more organised...yeah right hahaha

I have a Christmas card to share with you today, I had this digi image on my pc but it has no name on it, I had thought it was LOTV but I can't find it on their site so I have no idea where it is from...if anyone can help with that I would be grateful.

Anyway onto my card

I have used some Pink Petticoat paper matted onto Ruby Red card from PMD, Joycraft die-cut Trees and a Joanna Sheen snowflake. The image is coloured with Promarkers and my new Spectrum Noir Illustrator pens which I love, I have added some sparkle gel pen to the fur on Santa's jacket and hat but you can't see it in the pic. I had such a problem with shadow when trying to photograph this card and then it ended up a wee bit bright instead :(
The sentiment on this card is from LOTV.

That's all for now, thank you for looking and if you have time to leave a comment it will make my day !
