Oh no its the C word !!

So I have made the first of this years Christmas cards, beating last years 31st of July efforts! You never know one day I may be one of those organised people and start making them in January !

We received our first shipment of Christmas goodies in the shop today and on The mulberry-bush, online.
We just couldn't resist them, so of course one or two bits had to come home with me!

I've added a tiny little bit of
Glamour Dust.

As it's mid July I don't have any of my Christmas stamps out of storage yet, so had to scrabble around for a greeting in my oddsies box ! Luckily I found this one which I thought was quite appropriate. It was a magazine freebie.

Here's a list of the promarkers  I have used:

Red, Crimson, Ruby, Burgundy

Warm Grey's 1-4, Sunkissed pink, Blush

Pear Green, Pine, Holly

Oatmeal, Ginger, Spice, Terracotta, Henna, Cocoa, Walnut, Raw Sienna & Umber!

I have coloured the background with Faded Jeans Distress Ink, I stamped onto a sticky note and masked off the coloured image and the snowy area at the bottom and used an ink blending tool to add the ink.

The background papers are also from Wild Rose Studios, I hope you like Bella as much as we do, further projects will follow, just got to get my head round that word...
Ch******s !!

Happy Colouring
