A Christmas quickie!

I am full of germs and feeling sorry for myself, but things need doing so I'll have to be a brave little soldier!  Mum said she needed two more cards to post so I've made a couple of quickies, here's the first.

I had already planned the card but would have added more embellishments, but with the pretty busy patterned paper by Marianne Design and just the one die cut MD snowflake, I think I did ok!

The snowman is a LOTV stamp that sees ink every year .. .. he really is the best for a quick and easy card.  I've coloured with my Copics and then added glaze to the baubles, but of course you can't see that in the picture!  The text is, I think, a digi from Cuddly Buddly - I found a half page of them printed out in my Christmas bit box so just punched out this one and added Copic colours to match the image.  I finished off with Stardust Stickles for snow (still wet in the picture but I need to take it while still daylight).

If you are following my Gluten Free page, I've done a quick update with a picture of the latest cake I made, a spiced honey cake - yummy!  I'm sticking to the GF and lacto free and must say that I do feel better for it.  Certainly the foggy head is greatly improved, and my poor tummy is not quite as tender, and I rarely get the acid indigestion and reflux these days, but I do still get the bloating and farting!

I digress .. .. back to the card and challenges I can enter:  at the Corrosive Challenge it's anything goes, and the same at Created with Love.  I'll share my next Christmas quickie with you tomorrow!

  7. Gorgeous, gorgeous card Annie, I do so love this cute LoTV snowie, he's just darling. I think he works really well as a CAS design and the little snowflake and tiny sentiment are perfect as a finishing touch.
