We love James...



Howdy folks...well it sure does feel like winter!!  I've got the fleecy jammies back on...lol!!  I have been practicing colouring with the new contacts and I think I see close up quite well with them, i still have another set to test so we'll see how it goes!!

so I thought I would use one of my new stamps from LOTV which I coloured with copics and then shaded with polychromos.  The papers were in my stash from last year, Echo Park winter wishes. I layered them up onto bazill card and distressed the edges. The trees are a Distinctively Dee's and the snowflakes are from Martha Stewart.  I added glitter to the snowflakes, trees and the image.  I pleated a piece of ribbon aswell...that wasn't easy I hasten to add as I took me ages.  The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards.

Hope you likey!!

Gorgeous card Fi.
Love the image and papers, your colouring is spot on.
I am trying out new lenses too, Varifocals that are meant to help with distance and close up, but not having a lot of success. Being short sited means I loose on the close up.
