I've given myself a day off from packing today and played with the new Christmas Toby Tumbles digi designs over at Cuddly Buddly, this one is Christmas Me to You. I've coloured with Copics and remembered to list the colours - Toby is E30, E31, E55 and E44 plus a little R20 on his cheeks and inside his ears. His clothes are Y21, Y28, G21, G28, R22 and R27. The mistletoe, holly leaves and berries are with the same red and green colours, the edges of the stamps and the label are E40 and E81, then for the background I've used B000 and B0000. Oh, and I nearly forgot, the ribbon is RV00, RV63 and RV66.
Here's a pic of the card, quite simple as I've not got much left to play with. The patterned paper is a digi design from Cuddly Budly's Quilted Holly collection matted with dark green card onto a scallop square base. I've cut various Marianne bits and pieces to create the poinsettia embellishment and used waste dots in the corners covered with Stardust Stickles so they look like sparkly brads. I stamped the Jolly Holly text with Momento Cottage Ivy ink as it seemed appropriate! As the Marianne's Design Divas is an anything goes challenge this week I'll enter my card with them, and over at My Time To Craft the theme is something beginning with G .. .. mine is all the green I've used.
And here's another view of my new home, just a little bit further along from yesterday's view.
The garden isn't large, you can see the shed in the back corner - it could make a nice little craft room but I think it's going to stay as a shed as my hubby has designs on it too! The prickly beriberis hedge is going and the new bedrooms will be along the side of the garage with enough room left for a new drive leading up to that shed. The garden is wider at the front then at the back on this side so once the building is finished I'll have to see if there is any lawn left to rescue and create some flower beds behind the picket fence.
