Happy Christmas Everybody!

Its Here!
I just want to share one last project with you that I made and its hanging on our door tonight,
We don't have a chimney so have to leave out a magic key!
I Love this poem...

The key was MDF, I embossed it with black embossing powder, then ultra thick powder and then I rubbed gold gilding wax all over.

I coloured this gorgeous Father Christmas with my Spectrum Noir blendable pencils.
It just remains for me to say...
A Very Merry Christmas
and a
Happy and Healthy New Year
Happy Colouring

Its December Woohoo!

It's December let the chocolate...I mean festivities begin!

Well can you believe its nearly here! Christmas is just around the corner, and I don't know about you but I seem to be busier than ever usual, my mission this year will be to delegate more! I've even considered asking my other half to do some Christmas shopping, but I won't make a decision on that right now!!!

Anywhoo I am sharing my December challenge card with you today... the theme this month is CAS, for those of you that don't know what that means - Clean And Simple, which is great for such a busy time of year,

As last year I drew my own image for the December challenge I thought it would be really nice to do that again this year, so I got my pencils out and drew myself a Poinsettia onto Sheena's Stamping Card and coloured it with my Spectrum Noir Blendable Pencils...What do you think?
The colours I used are 042, 025, 026, 033, 022, 060, 055, 013, 047, I mounted it onto Centura Pearl that I had embossed with one of the Sara Davies Festive wonder embossing folders and added an MDF Merry Christmas shape that I had coloured with Red Berry Sparkle Pen.
I love the way the sparkle!
Why not join in with the challenge this month, as always you could win a great prize, and as the saying goes 'you have to be in it to win it!'
Thanks for joining me today
Happy Colouring
