Divas by Design - Challenge 9: Christmas in August

Hello blogworld

The summer hols, as I'm sure lots of you know!, are finally drawing to an end and as much as I've loved having Emily home I'm also now looking forward to her going off to school.  Not that I'm sure about the whole school thing, would prefer it was still nursery, but my goodness I'm looking forward to getting my craft time back!

Anyway that's not what I'm really here for!  It's a new challenge over at Divas by Design and the boss lady ;-) is making me do another Christmas card before it's even the end of August!!!  Still it's lovely to work with this times sponsor: The Poodles Digi Doodles images - they are just fab!

And this is my card:

I merged two images and then coloured with my Promarkers and highlighted with stickles glitter glue.  Die-cut onto a nestie with a chalked border for definition.
Please don't ask me whose the papers are, as I can't remember!  I then stamped a swirl border (from a set by Inkadinkado) around the edge and added a piece of ribbon from my ribbon box.
The card blank and sentiment are both Craftwork Cards.

Hope you like - but you certainly won't be seeing anymore Christmas cards from me for a while longer!

This is lovely Sarah. So sweet and I love the colours. I can't seem to get going with Christmas cards either - I've made 2, and they were only because I 'had to' for DTs lol :o) Lisa x
