Here comes Santa.....



Good Evening Ladies

(Cough, Cough)- can't get rid of this cold and now it's on my chest! I'm rattling a tad like a snake when I breath.... ah well......

Right...... onto the card! This one is using the LOTV image Father Christmas - which has got to be one of my all time favourite images. It really puts me in the mood for thinking about Christmas. I've used my copics again to colour and for the shadow.... added loads of glitter for the snow and on his hat etc, used a corner rounder, then mounted it onto red card. The DP is from Memory Box Mistletoe Collection and again, that's mounted onto more red card. The sentiment was a freebie from Bizzy Becks and I resized it until it fit one of my nestibilities. I used my Martha Stewart holly punch and added a few red stickles dots for the berries. Then... i played with the bling button on photoshop to create the sparkly bits - I get a bit carried away with that! Right......... i think that was it...

I'm meeting a friend tomorrow and going to see the Crafts for Christmas show at Harrogate (if I'm up to it that is...) - was really looking forward to it, so hopefully I'll manage to get round before oxygen is required! hehe! Thanks for all your get well wishes - you're a lovely lot!

OK.... back to the settee and my hottie bottle

Bye for now
