Me To You...

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas time...and that Santa was good to you? I was a very lucky girl, and received some lovely new crafty goodies...and had a little play yesterday. They were mostly Christmas related...but, as I like to make Christmas cards all year round, that's not a problem! On today's card, I've used new papers (from the 'Silent Night' pad by First Edition) & a cute new stamp (simply called 'Presents' from the Me To You range of Christmas Characters). I coloured the image using watercolour pencils...adding some Stickles to the snowy ground for a touch of sparkle. I distressed the edges of papers, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen. The snowflake is a Memory Box die, and is held in place with a gem brad from Craft Obsessions...the adhesive pearls are from Hobbycraft.

Time to start a new tally chart for 2015's Christmas cards!
