My Little Friend.....

Good afternoon everyone.

Well after all the rain we had last night the snow has finally gone.....for now!!!.

Today I have another card to share.

I know someone who has a birthday on Christmas Eve and this Christmas I decided to try and make a Birthday card with a Christmassy feel......and this is what I came up with.


My idea for this card was to try and use a non~Christmas image and include some Christmas elements without turning it into a Christmas card but to keep a Birthday feel.

This is a Sarah Kay image called Babette Cuddling Kitty from Stampavie. I was having a play with my Copics so please forgive my rubbish blending.....The papers are Jovial from BasicGrey. The die~cut fern leaves are from Memory Box and the pearls, brad and spacer are from The Hobby House. The die~cut Poinsettia is from Craftwork Cards which I've had stashed in a drawer for ages...maybe years. The sentiment is computer generated.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:~

Totally Gorjuss ~ # 168 ~ Flowers
Paper Crafting Journey ~ For A Girl
Creative Inspirations ~ # 198 ~ Anything Goes + An Option For Flowers
Inky Impressions ~ # 94 ~ Celebrate


Thank you for stopping by.

Have a lovely Sunday.
