My first christmas card

Hi everyone,
Hope you are all fine and dandy.
I have had a day at home today, YIPPEE and after the house work I thought it might be a great idea if I started my Christmas cards. This is what I came up with.
The card stock is from my stash, I'm trying to use it up. I have run the dark blue card through the cuttlebug machine and embossed some dots onto it. The image is from Pollycraft. I have coloured her with my water coloured pencils and to add a little sparkle to her wings and the snow flake I have embossed them with some silver embossing powder. I know it is a little simple but I figure at least I have made a start!
I must be off now, I have to pick up the munchkins soon from school and from there take them to their Karate lessons.
Thanks for taking the time and stopping by

Howdy Strangers

Well it has been a while hasn't it, and I really wish I had a great excuse like winning the lottery or something just as exciting but NOPE nothing like that at all, just a busy life. In need of some time out I decided to start with a new look blog and then headed off to the craft table for some me time.
I have made this card for the twins teacher, Mrs Keating, who will be leaving us in 3 weeks to have a bubby. We will miss her heaps and heaps.
I have used a Popcorn bear stamp, many thanks to Jo who lent it to me, coloured her with my water coloured pencils. The image has been cropped onto 2 different shades of purple bazzill paper purchased from Scrapbooking to Di For in Malaga. The white is a embossed white Bazzill which I have shaded with pink and blue chalks to highlight the pattern, which I hope you can see in the picture. The charm and ribbon are from spotlight. I kept the card simple because no one knows what she is having. I guess all will be revealed very soon.
Thanks so much for dropping by, I have to buzz off now and pick the kids up from school....buzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
Take care
