Just wanted to share a card I made over the weekend!! Yep, look at me go - another Christmas card from the women who is usually finishing off her crimbo cards in the week just before Christmas!!
I dug out one of my all time favourite LOTV stamps, the gorgeous James the Bear and teamed him up with the sketch over at Sketch Saturday, although as usual I played around with it a bit, in this case I went for a mirror image!!
Here's the original sketch:
Here's a closer look at James , I added some doodlebug flock to his hat, glitter and glamour dust for the snow - and also managed to glitter and flock my black top in the process!!
I've also just figured out how to do the artistic edges to my images so here we are:
and a closer look at the snow flake cut with the ever faithful and almost antique cuttlebug die:
The papers are scraps from my folders, I think the blue stripes is from a Forever friends magazine freebie and the other one is from a very old paper pad by the English Paper Co. (are they still going??)
The sentiment is also by LOTV.
