Night sky?

Hello Everyone,

The weekend is over for me and what a fabulous one I had.

The weather turned to custard, so what else could I do, but sit and make cards, without an ounce of guilt.
Poor Nelson, down in the South Island has suffered really bad weather, but here in the North we just had rain that we desperately needed.

So now...Monday is just getting started...and time for MAKE IT MONDAY   to get started again for a brand new week.

This week we are sponsored by the lovely Emma over at

Emma is offering a £10 voucher to her store.

Congratulations to last weeks winners, even though it is such a busy time of the year, you all pumped out those paper projects and linked up, so thank you, such lovely projects and blogs we get to visit every week.

My card this week was going to be a Christmas card for my G/son [the youngest one], but, someone spotted it, and wanted it, so I sold, I have made him a new one which you will see later in the week.

There's my little reindeer, with his night sky. I worked on that sky for ages and my wrist got so used my sky template and a stampin up ink called 'blue Bayou' but it is a very fast drying ink, so you could only do little bits and quickly or it didnt blend, then went over in lighter blue and black.I used make up sponges, and trust me, there's not much left of them left..

Added white card along the bottom, shaped like a small hill, and glitterd it up, for snow.
The tiny tree is a gold Christmas decoration branch out of a floral centre piece display, but no one will miss

Close up of my sweet little reindeer, by Elizabeth Dulemba...coloured with Faber Castell pencils..but for the scarf I used copics, and forgot to add the glitter on the white bits and his chest...

The 'sentiment was from Ladybug Craft inks, a freebie in a magazine...and tied to the tree.
Added gold stars to the sky....done....and I loved him, but he is gone...hopefully to be loved by another .

My pick this week...well, lets just say, I nearly had to pick by random org ...but I did love this one.

#119 Claire..   I coludn't get a picture, sorry, it came up blank, but please pop over and have a look, really cute owl...lovely colouring.

Well, thats everything for this to see all your paper projects, so keep linking up, and check out my teamies gorgeous projects at the MAKE IT MONDAY BLOG

Hi Chrissy

Oh wow, the night sky just looks amazing!! Well worth all that effort and at the expense of the make up sponges!

I love your resourcefullness in nicking the branch from a floral display, it works perfectly on this card. As always, you have done a fab job with the colouring, the cute reindeer is looking pretty pleased with himself for sure.

Cute card you have picked this week too, that little owl is just the sweetest ever!

Michelle :o)
