Another scheduled post .. .. only it didn't .. .. this is the card I made for my eldest grandson. The image is one of my new LOTV stamps, coloured with Copics and then a simple layout again with a scrap of paper from my stash and the wet glue and loose glitter.

To finish things off I've punched out snowflakes and decorated the centres with sparkly gems.

By the Cute and Girly December challenge and the Critter Sketch Challenge both have the theme of let it snow, perfect! And the Papertake Weekly challenge is to share your last Christmas card make in 2011 - yep, this is going to be my last one for this year! I'm packing my stuff away and cleaning house ready for the festivities, although I do have a couple of get well cards to make for friends so maybe I'll leave my pens out for a while longer yet .. .. ..

  5. This looks lovely - especially when I think of you with the dogs too - I hope they're not chasing the workmen too much!! Anyhow - the colouring of the little dog works brilliantly with the blue & it really made me smile seeing this - my Dad skiied down a slope & found he had a terrier which had sunk its teeth into his shin in order to hang on until he got to the bottom!
