Checks at Christmas

I was looking down my blogger roll list just now, so very slow going, and saw that the Winter Wonderland blog challenge is to create with checks or gingham.  Righteo I thought, I've got a little something already made up that I can enter .. .. so here it is.

My card uses the LOTV snowman - I've used this stamp so many times over the past few years .. .. he is a classic!  Coloured with my Copic pens then added the faux embossed stitches and a little soft green ink to the edges.  No glitter on this one, can you believe not everyone likes it! Just a glaze on the baubles that doesn't show up.  I found a scrap of plaid paper, Nitwits freebie in a magazine ages ago, and added the faux stitched edge to it too, matted with some old SU! Sage Shadow card stock and finished off with the little dome gems in the corners. They are by Papermania, and are clear but I coloured them with a Copic pen to tie in with the colour scheme.  It's a simple little card, about all I can manage these days, and fairly flat for the post.  I'm slowly getting back to colouring as I find it quite relaxing, so good therapy .. .. I do need to get the duster out though as my desk is covered with a fine layer of dust after being left alone for several weeks.
