Having a blue Christmas!

Hello all and hope that your week has started well?  I've been at work today - but on my 'final countdown' to when I leave next week lol!  It will feel strange leaving a job and a place I've been for over 8 years but I'm really looking forward to my new job!  And thank you for all your good wishes about Tilly the Dog - and all your good vibes must have helped because she's definitely a bit brighter!  The tail is wagging again (whereas at the weekend it was drooping sadly lol!) and she's interested in walks and tea.  I've had her on plain boiled chicken and rice - I think she quite likes being a bit poorly!

I've really got into making a few Christmas cards now - which still feels a bit bizarre in August!  I've used the gorgeous 'Winter Fairy' from WeeStamps.

I've coloured the image with copics and added some glamour dust to the wings, white Flowersoft on the 'furry' trims and some pearl drops. 

I've used kraft card and papers from LOTV pads 'Krafty Christmas' and 'Petal Fresh' and the sentiment is also from LOTV.  I've added some lace from stash and some holly die cut leaves - I got a couple of new dies from Joanna Sheen and love these holly leaves that perfectly cut and emboss all in one go! I've added some red pearls for berries.
Hope you like this little cutie! 
I hope that you have a good week - with some crafty time squeezed in as well! 
Back soon,
Kim x
