Cosied up for Christmas

It’s sketchie time!Over at Willow Sketchie Challenge Kelly has provided us with a fabby sketch plus the twist of making either an easel or tent card.Here’s the sketch :

LOOK! This is the fantastic prize you could win :


I’ve made a tent card using the Home Sweet Home outlined image and coordinating papers from Walter and Winnies does Christmas CD-rom available as a pre-order ( to be shipped from 12th October)  from Willow Designs.I’ve coloured with ProMarkers ,sprinkled snow in the form of Polar White Flower Soft and popped it up using Pinflair Glue Gel.The edges have been distressed with the Tim Holtz tool and after cutting the aperture  I made a frame using Labels 3 Nestabilities.It has been backed with some acetate that has been embossed with a Papermania snowflake folder.The sentiment has been replaced with a snowflake cut from a Marianne Creatables Snowflakes 1 die.Some Papermania buttons and We R Memory Keepers Baker’s Twine has been use to  the card.The sketch has been mirrored in this instance.

    This is so super cute. I love the embossed acetate in the background. I just put a piece through my cuttlebug recently and loved it myself-just to see what it looked like. Your card is so darling. Great job. Thank you so much for playing along with Speedy the Cat’s Friends “Things with Wings” Challenge this week. It is a delight to visit you to see what you made for our viewing pleasure. Good luck in the drawing and hope you can play with us again next week!
