Merry Christmas....

Good morning windswept bloggers!! Well...what a day and night yesterday for us Scots...we had winds up to 160mph at parts of the day. The extreme weather caused havoc all over and I am so glad I didn't need to venture out!! It was a tad scary I have to say and I hope everyone was safe.

So I doodled away last night colouring in this stamp which is Festive Friends from Sugar Nellie and this time I coloured with copics and then glittered it up. I bought a few new colours so thought I would put them to the test although I haven't managed to get the right shade of green, so if anybody knows of a kind of lightish promarker green, let me know. Now when I saw the sketch over at Christmas Challenges, I had to try it...I do prefer lots of layers as I am kind of rubbish at the embellishments so With lots of layers I don't need to add too many other bits and bobs.
The papers are from Fancy Pants - Hot Chocolate collection, and they are yummy!! I have entered the challenges below. I layered the papers onto kraft card and edged them with a fine pen to give them a stitched look. I punched out the snowflake and glittered it up and then added a button and twine. I also added some twine around one of the layers and attached a snowflake charm.
