First Christmas

Monday, 23 December 2013

Hello to everyone on this blustery Christmas Eve-Eve!
I hope you're all well and are ready for an even blusterier Christmas Eve!  That's what we're supposed to be getting anyway.
I was up until 4:30 this morning wrapping my presents - they cost a fortune, took ages to wrap nearly breaking my back in the process and now that it's all done it looks like nothing!  Ah well, at least it's all done now.

We have our last challenge of the year for you up today on Seems A Little Sketchy and our sponsor for this challenge - which lasts 3 weeks this time - is Di's Digi Downloads
Here's is the lovely festive sketch we have for you this time:
And here's what I did:

The image is a Bauble Baby by Mo's Digital Pencil and I coloured him with the following copics: Skin: E21,13,00,0000,R20. Hair: E29,37,35. Clothes: B95,93,91. G16,14,12. C3,1. Holly: YG97,95,93. R29. Bauble: BG13,11,10.  And I used a gold gelly roll metallic pen also.

My papers are Santa's Workshop by Helz Cuppleditch and some of the little accessories match the papers too.  I used a Magnolia Doo Hickey for the swirl and Spellbinders Circle and Big Scallop Circles for the image.  I edged the image with a nice bobble-y ribbon by docrafts.  The bells, twine and nail heads are from my stash.  The sentiment in the bauble was computer generated and the font is Santa's Sleigh.  The other sentiment is a Wild Rose Studio stamp.

The inside is a lot more basic than the front!  The Merry Christmas die cut is by Couture Creations, Intricutz dies.

So that's my last Seems A Little Sketchy card of the year, if you get some crafting time over the holidays, please join us and make sure you check out the rest of the DT's work for some fab inspiration!
