Xmas Pixie

Today I have a pretty card to share with you. This is the Xmas Pixie, one of Karen Middleton's new digi designs available at Cuddly Buddly, coloured with my Copics. I've used my usual skin tones then added in pinks RV10 and 11, greens G20 and 21, blues B91 and 21, plus the cool greys from C0 to C5. I've added a little glaze pen to the reflections on the baubles and lots of Stardust Stickles. The check paper is also by Karen at Cuddly Buddly, matted with bright pink card and with a layer of white swiss dots embossed. For embellishment I've added a length of pink gingham ribbon and diecut various Marianne elements that also have the Stickle treatment!

The iCopic weekly challenge is currently to add glitter, as well as use your Copics of course. the digital Tuesday challenge is called fairy wishes, hope they will let a little pixie in, and over on Flutterby Wednesday Danni is looking for a few of her favourite things, including pink and lots of sparkle!

I have been a little stressed out the past 24 hours, my hubby had to go back to the hospital for a proceedure .. .. I wont go into the gory details. As I couldn't leave Mum he stayed overnight with his uncle and went with his Mum to the hospital, but his phone died so I was in a right state not knowing what was happening. Thankfully the news is good, there is no longer any sign of a blockage and the diagnosis is simply IBS. Right then, I'd best make a soothing fish pie for tea tonight and limit the fruit cake - easier said than done!

  1. Those wings are just delightful & I like the way you've used pink die-cut leaves with the poinsettia flowers & swirls. Hope things are working out well for you - I've been hanging curtains & we are seeing the semblance of a living room emerging after nearly 6 weeks of chaos.
    Take care midst it all.

  6. Annie - I hope you have de-stressed by now & that your husband is making a very good recovery. For some reason - suspect I'd not expanded my screen properly - I didn't see your last paragraph when I left my earlier comment. Please take care of yourself & I'm pleased the outcome was not sinister.
