Wee Winter Friends

Been playing with my pens again and coloured up this little cutie by Sylvia Zett - this is the digi version of Winter Friends from Wee Stamps.  I've not touched my pens for a few weeks so found it a little harder going, but persevered and like the finished results.  Although, I'm not sure penguins and rabbits are purple .. .. hey! it's my Christmas fantasy, ok!

I was lacking inspiration when it came to putting the card together but found I already had the mat cut and a piece of the matching paper on a base card .. .. so cut another layer and found a scrap piece to layer up, then finished off with the die cut embellishments.

Here is the card, gone a little bent with the wet glue so I will need to try and flatten it a bit (or blame the postman/weather).  The mini poinsettia dies are from the MD LR0142 set and the mistletoe leaves from LR0189.  I've added red and white pearls to finish things off.  The patterned papers are from the MD Wintertime pad PK9100 with embossed stitch edges I've inked with brown chalk ink.  I've not seen any Christmas challenges to link up too .. .. but then looking isn't easy.  Thank you to everyone stopping by, and I do love to read comments too!

Still having internet problems here especially in the later afternoon/evenings or anytime over the weekend.  But I've got a new little gadget from Tesco with my vouchers, so instead of paying £113, I only had to pay £23!  I've figured out how to use it for reading Facebook and my emails, and even got GOT series 4 loaded from Blinkbox (couldn't wait until next February for the dvd set) although I might get a cable to link it to the TV for a bigger screen.  I've not yet learnt how to do anything else and I can't seem to get the blog listings to show or the Pinterest adding icon .. .. sometimes I feel like a techno-dino!
