This week at House Mouse Lori chose Winter Wishes as the theme and as I am STILL making and sending Christmas Cards I chose to do yet another.



I used the image Holiday Smooch and coloured it with Copics, not the best choice of images when one is very short on time. It took ages to colour the leaves - then what did I do - cut it out with the round nesties and chopped half of them off - another lesson learnt - cut out the image first then you don't colour the bits to be chopped off. I cut the base card with the round scalloped nesties and fastened a tab at the top with a snowflake charm and a round brad, added a ribbon bow and a sentiment by Stamps Away and voila - card done.


I'm leaving you with the beautiful view from my kitchen window, the photograph is a little blurred as it was still snowing at the time.  It stopped shortly afterwards and apparently the temperatures here dropped to
-18 degrees at the weekend and all the ducks were sat at the edge of the duck pond looking wistfully at the ice. Time to go into hibernation I think.

Aaaaw! This is gorgeous. Beautifully coloured and even though you cut some of the leaves off (we've all done this haven't we) I still think it's beautiful.

What a gorgeous card Heather. Love it. I'm looking at all that snow and trying to imagine how cold it must be. Where I am, there won't be any snow, just heat, humidity and sun with the air conditioning on. lol
Merry Christmas.
