Oh Honey...

Well a wee quickie this afternoon as I am getting organised so that I have nothing to do when(housework) when I come home from the SECC tomorrow...except for to play with my goodies...1 sleep...woo hoo!! I wanted to try mt sewing machine agian but still have my L plates on for that....Now this card just kind of fell together, the papers are from 2 different collections as I was rumaging through my papers trying to decide which ones to use, these 2 happened to land next to each other and i thought hey presto they are perfect..well I think so! The spotty one is from October Afternoon - Bake the Cookies and the blue one is from Scenic route - Roxbury collection, both are Christmas collections. This is Honey the skier from CC Designs which I have coloured with copics, layered her onto a die cut circle which I scalloped with the Stampin Up slit punch and the blue circle at the back of Honey has been embossed with snowflakes. I added white glitter to Honey's hat, jacket and boots and then finished with gems. I needed to fix her skiis as they broke when I was cutting her out...so a repair job!! I also distressed the edge of the brown card.

Gorgeous card. So nice to see a christmas card in untraditional colours. This really works and you can't see the join on the skiis. Love her bobbles.

Love this Fi, it's gorgeous! Fab papers - they work so well together, love the image too. Re Paper Sundaes, I wish I could have done - I can't fit another challenge blog in yet, but next Easter when my littlest one starts nursery, I'll be able to take a bit more on :o) Lisa x
