Production has started!

Hello blogworld

So how are we all keeping then?  Hasn't it turned cold?  So hard to believe that last week we were still wandering around in our T-shirts and this week it's hats, gloves and scarves.  Saw on the news that Scotland has had their first fall of snow - hope none of my Scottish bloggy friends are too badly affected.  Have I ever mention before that I lived in Scotland for 5ish years - loved it!  Would move there again tomorrow if I could, but hubby is not keen!

What's the title all about then?  Well those darned Christmas cards are now in production in chez Sarah and I've done not too bad so far, I think anyway.  I started this morning and I have 11 done already, nothing fancy you understand - just plain simple (I hope stylishly plain and simple, not boring!) they must be fairly simple as hubby likes 'em!  Am moving onto a different design tomorrow and hope to make another 10 then same again all week so will be all done by weekend.

I do have a few fancier ones, and have to decide who they go to.  The masses get the mass produced one!

And so here is one of my 'fancier' ones:

Detail shot of image:

I used:

TeddbyBo & Co digi image: TeddyBea_132 - Snowflake flight; coloured with my Flexmarkers and Promarkers and then Glamour dusted to within an inch of her life!
Various embossing folders.
Memory Box die: Meridian Border
Craftwork Cards card blank and sentiment

And here is a little treat for those of you who read this far.  Emily has been colouring in, what do you think?

Not bad for four and a half eh!, she picked this one from all my Saturated Canary images and said she liked it as she was so pretty!

Anyhow, will wander now and see you all again soon.


A challenge, or two:
