CHRISTMAS IN APRIL!!



Hello Everyone...

What a great weekend, just cannot beieve it has gone already and we are back to Monday...

A new MAKE IT MONDAY  is about to start so thats a good thing for a Monday...

We have the charming BUGABOO as our sponsor this week with their cute and quirky images ....and the winning commenter gets  7 single digis of their choice...




For my card this week I played with two images...

Tree Bench   and  BBrat-big-bow-sitter  ....and made a Christmas card...



Both digis, but no merging...have not the skills for that...but printed out the tree and bench then fussy cut the wee girl and popped her up on dots and sat her on the bench.



A close view of the image....coloured with Faber Castell pencils, but her blouse was paper pieced....and very fiddley..papers MME 'The Sweetest Thing -Tangerine'....the tree was coloured with copics and pencils....the seat with pencils..



Pom pom trim and a bit of scrap ribbon, a chipboard snowflake and then some glitter on the snow... done.!!

And then we come to my POTW....which is never an easy task...but narrowed my choice down to this card from #186 Lorraine  ...Clean and beautiful and love the ribbon detail...thanks for sharing Lorraine..




So there we go.... another week kicks in and it is going to be a good day...
[well it has to be a good day as it is my Birthday today..whoo hoo...]

 Have a great week, link up all those paper made cards and projects and will see you all in blogland... 

Luv CHRISSYxx

I've been too anxiously awaiting the spring weather to think about Christmas, but I do have to say your card is top notch. So like the way you've used the park bench and the little Ava image. Wonderful design. Wonderful card.
