Jingle All The Way.....................

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Later on today, I get to go for my Christmas make over at the hairdressers across the road, I will feel like a new woman again :)

This card, is another that the dearest husband Matt, decided on Friday he needed to send............I tell you, next year I will make 10 cards just for him and his short notice requirements.

I decided to go with one of my more recent Penny Black images, so here is what I created for him
An A5 Christmas card on the landscape
The base colour and compliment is again gold, the papers so sorry I really need to start writing these down as I make the cards " New Years Resolution" promise.  The MS holly edge punch has been used to create a base for the lovely ribbon, which is lightly wired enabling this bow to stand proud, and the ends actually go where I want them too.  

The close up of the Penny Black image coloured in copics with a little gold gel pen and clear glitter sakuro pen for the extra glitter.

and a close up of these little bells from the local department store, strung together with some fine gold wire. Just had to so they matched the image, if you look carefully you can see me taking the photograph lol x

A quick thank you to all my wonderful visitors who take the time to leave such lovely comments, I love hopping over to visit you back and also welcome to my new follower

My 700 candy will be posted in January, lots of sales on so hope to get some fabulous bargains for the candy

Gingerloft - Winter or Christmas
One Stitch at a Time - Anything Goes

Hugs Kate xx
