Warm Wishes.

Hi girls me again for the second time today. I finished this card this evening after work. I was hoping to enter it in the Whiff of Joy challenge. I might be too late now though. Never mind another Christmas card is very welcome. I followed the sketch from Whiff of Joy and coloured this lovely image of Henry mouse with hot chocolate....yummm, with Promarkers. I used some lovely wassail DP from Basic Grey. The card candy and sentiment is from Craftwork cards. I used a Martha Stewart punch to edge of a piece of cardstock with a double hole scallop. The flowers are white ones from Hero Arts which I also coloured with a Promarker and finished with brads.

I think this also fits the Stamp Something challenge :- Glitzy somethings - I've added some jewels and stickles on the hat.
Whimsy :- Die cuts.
the Pink Elephant :- Favourite Christmas colour combination.

I managed to make this card this morning just to see how it worked and whether I would make any more similar to it. I think I might. The large snowflake is a Sizzix die. The image is Penny Black again coloured with Promarkers. The sentiment and card candy is from Craftwork Cards again. Not really much to it but it would be quick to do and I could vary the image and the DP which this time is MME colourful Christmas.

I've used a sketch that I followed some time ago because I thought it would be simple and quick to follow to make a few cards. After checking out some of the challenges I often enter I think it would fit the Creative Card Crew challenge which is gold or silver.

I'm off now to explore another couple of ideas I've had. I really need to get a move on because once I've finished these cards I'll be the lucky person who has the privilege of writing them. I also know for a fact that I need to revise my labels to sort the ones I don't need any more and the ones where the details have changed.

Maybe if I'm really quick (lol) I'll be back with another card later.
