A Little Christmas Help


**Please click on the pic for a clearer view.For some reason they always look a little blurry on the blog page  😦  **

The challenge at Crafty Sentiments this week is the ever popular Anything Goes.Drop on by to join in the fun and be in with the chance of winning a super prize.Don’t forget to take a look at some fabulous inspiration by the talented DT while you’re there.

Isn’t this just the cutest Christmas Helper you could have?She can be found at Crafty Sentiments Designs.She’s been coloured with Copic Ciao and Sketch Markers with,altho’ it doesn’t show too well,a little snow scattered around her feet.The edges have also been ink distressed.I’m desperately trying use use up old Christmas stash rather than buy any more new.So the card is some I bought a few years ago.The back panel has been embossed with a folder.The ribbon,twine and jingle bells are also from my stash…O.K. I have to admit the embossing folder(part of a set)…and the sentiment stamps are new,but these were a half price bargain and there are loads of words.A girl’s gotta be allowed a little new stuff,isn’t she? 😉

    Lisa, I adore this card. The colors that you’ve used are my favorite winter combination and I just made a card with the exact colors this past weekend! This is an eyecatcher, that’s for sure. The image is adorable and you’ve colored her beautifully! I love the embossed paper in the background and bells….I have bells in my stash somewhere and have never used them! Thank you for putting them on this fabulous card to remind me they’re in a drawer somewhere! This is a GREAT card!!! Hugs, Gail
