So until it brightens up, and everyone else in the house has decided it's possibly time to get up, I thought I'd share a little Christmas card with you. Yes, I know, another Christmas card! But as schools around here start back this week, I always use that as a reminder that I really should start making some of my Christmas cards.
This one features one of the gorgeous Christmas stamps from LOTV - 'My Little Tree' - and I love the expression of determination on that little face!
I wish I could draw like that, and achieve such character with just a few pen strokes!
I've coloured him with promarkers and pencils, and had to add some glitter of course!
The edges of all the papers have been distressed with 'Tea Dye' distress inks. The kraft backing paper is from the lovely LOTV 'Krafty Christmas' pad, and the red patterned paper is from K&CO.
I've added a punched snowflake and gingham ribbon from stash. The sentiment is from LOTV and the cute button is from a few packs of Buttons Galore christmassy buttons I picked up a while ago!
I was quite pleased with the card, but a bit disappointed in myself that I nearly always seem to use reds & greens on Christmas cards! Note to self: Must try to be more adventurous with colours!
Anyway, hope you like it! Enjoy the rest of the day. I'll be back soon,
