Christmas Joy

Morning peeps, I hope the weather is being kind to you. Can´t believe Christmas is approaching as it does feel uncanny making cards for this festivity whilst the sun shines brightly.

The challenge this week at the Creative Card Crew has been set by GD Linda C and she has chosen the theme of Strings Attached so use strings/ fibers etc.


For my card I have followed the fabulous sketch from The Pixie Cottage, Secret Crafter Saturday have set the theme of Four Seasons, Cute Daisy May say Touchy touchy ... so us some Texture, Incy Wincy Designs and Lily-Boo Too have their challenge with the colour Purple..
I have coloured this gorgeous new WOJ image with my copics, raised her with 3d pads onto a bugged background. Papers are DCWV Rose-Tinted Christmas and fibers from my stash.

Enjoy your day and happy crafting.
