Phew.... just in time!!

Hi Girls...

Well, I made it just in time!!  Mind you, I had to get up early this morning to finish the glueing...   Anyone else in that situation?

I chose this image from Digi Stamp Boutique a while back for my lovely OH's card...  so it was just a matter of colouring it..    The image is called Cute Robins Xmas Kiss and can be found HERE.

I coloured with my copics... die cut it with my Li'l Inkers Stitched Rectangle dies,  put a gorgeous paper I found at Sammy Taylors Embsay behind the image.. then added a bit of Bazzill dotty which I cut with a Martha Stewart Border punch.  I added a lovely satin ribbon and bow, and to finish, a computer generated sentiment.... oooh, and some glitter!!

I just wanted to show you the difference in the colours here when I took my first photo with just a normal electric light... and without my OTT lite.  Pretty amazing difference in the reds huh?  The other photos were taken with no light on in the room, just the OTT lite to catch the glitter..  and as it was about 8 am - there was very little natural light.  Santa brought me the OTT light a few years back now... hope he's as generous this year!

As my lovely OH is just as sloppy and romantic as me... I think he'll like this card.... and he does like a little bit of mistletoe!!

Big hugs and Happy Christmas to everyone..
