This is my card share...using one of Heathers fabulous new images which you can find HERE

Princess Crystal Icicle Ethereal Enchantress

There she is in all her sparkling prettiness...

I added the branch myself to give her something to sit on and  the leaves are sparkly punched snowflakes.

A close Faber Castell pencils and clothes and hair with copics.

You can see how thick the snow is on this shot, dripping off her gorgeous sparkly wings.

Papers from Rosies studio..and that's about it really.

That annoying shadow is the tree behind me and the wrong time of the day for photographing..

So there we go...thanks so much for stopping by...

Enjoyed the movie "The Hunger Games..Mockingjay"[ or bird or something].. very much last night and managed to stay awake the whole time...but we had to sit right near the front and 2 1/2 hours with a high backed chair and looking up did not do my neck any I ate too much chocolate and felt quite bilious on the way home..just couldn't stop myself..pineapple lumps and aeroplanes..very yummy.

Hello Everyone..

Thursday today and time for an inspirational post for Digital Delights 

This week I was able to play with Christmas Saffi ..

So very cute and such fun to colour and if you like her to come to your house you can buy her HERE

I used copics for this image and of course lashings of glitter.

I love the little eyes on the reindeer and the surprised look on the wee girl..

Oop's..the bow went limp..papers from MME "Be Merry" and I made the snowmen 3D along the bottom...

The snowflakes I punched out in red cardstock and added clear glitter which made them sort of gold.

The "Holiday Greetings" sentiment is from Digital delights too..and the ribbon from my stash.

So there we go..

Had my hair cut today and I feel  like a new person.

Hello Everyone..

Yesterday I made a boo boo and called my image "Ballerina Bobbi" was supposed to be "Ballerina Abi"...apologies to "All dressed up."

Another day is half way through here and had a cancellation for this afternoon so thought I would whip home  and put my vintage Christmas card up before I get my haircut.. I was asked to make this card and a 70th Birthday card for the same Lady...

The gorgeous image is from "The Graphics Fairy"...and it printed out so pink and I could not alter it.

Lots of stuff going on here...the papers are Couture Creations" Vintage Christmas"

The holly across the top is actually the baking paper I used to help get the  light cardstock out of the die...but it didn't work, so used the baking paper

Close up of image....

And the side view..everything was from my stash..the music brad from a candy I won a long time ago..the velvet brown bow from "My Lady"..

The large snowflakes were a cuttlebug die and cut them from the DP's..

So hope the lady likes it and I will show you the Birthday card tomorrow..

Thanks so much for stopping by...

Oh! great..a txt just came hairdresser just cancelled, so I will have to spend another woolly hair day ...cant get in until tomorrow...oh! well...I will just have to sit and colour for the afternoon till school pick can be so

See you tomorrow.

Hello Everyone...

Another lovely day..nice quiet workload with very happy folk..I think they are happy as their caregiver is

So onto my card to share with you and it is using a free image from All Dressed Up called Ballerina Abi
 But with a difference...I turned her into a Christmas card...

Not hard to do really...just coloured her in Christmas colours..just wanted to see if it worked.

Bobbi is coloured with copics on her clothes and Faber Castell pencils  on her skin and hair.

As I have no Frantage and no idea where to get it from over here..I loaded on the glue around the edges and used thick white glitter...sort of works.

The side view...and although I have hidden the papers they were Coture Creations "Jolly Christmas"..

I have gone very lime green this year with the red..not sure what that was all abou,t but I like it.

Added a folded ribbon with a sparkly poinsettia in the centre and a few snowflakes..

Going to enter these challenges...

That's it for today...the afternoon is getting on and off to do the tea rounds soon..

"My Lady" is still going strong [ 96] and we were talking today [several and over.] about how long I have been with her..6 years today...she said it was just like yesterday...what was Yesterday?..[Sunday was my reply]..well, what a day is today [Monday]..well, when did you start here...6 years ago..6 YEARS AGO!!..SEEMS LIKE YESTERDAY...and so it goes her to bits.

See you tomorrow..

Off my soap box, all relaxed now, and ready to share some Winter cuteness from...
