Sending Christmas Cheer with LOTV

After a week of miserable wet weather followed by a day of solid rain on Saturday here in Sydney, the sun came out on Sunday to dry everywhere up! Walshie and I went down to the beach for a walk and an ice cream, it was so good to get out and walk in the sun.  I hope wherever you are you enjoyed a good weekend and managed some you time!!!

Saturday was the perfect day to sit and colour, so I broke out the Copic markers  and Inkadinks.  Today I thought I'd share this little Christmas card  coloured with Copics.



It's one of the LOTV Christmas images...so sweet and when you look... not too much colouring really.  I remember a time when I would reach for Prisma's to colour such a large area of red!  I've used stickles for the falling snow and IRL it's so pretty.  

I'm enjoying adding some of the pieces I've cut using the PI and this card has the large scallop, I actually designed this cutting file (get a load of me!!!).  The snowflake was also cut on the PI and when cut I coated it with glitter ....yum!


I'm entering this card in the following challenges this week:


A Spoon Full of Sugar - Relish To Embellish
Catch The Bug - Anything goes
Charisma Card - With Love @ Christmas
Fairy Tale (2 weeks) - anything goes
Bizzy Becs OnLine Store Challenge - Cute & Sweet




See you soon.......
