Christmas Cards

Happy Monday and start of the new week... I made these 2 very plain Christmas cards last night and thought I would share them with you.  Please excuse the lack of embellishments, I just wanted to keep these Clean & Simple.

First is my new Sugar Nellie Santa from Funky Kits... he looks such a jolly fellow, doesn't he ?

Santa was coloured in with Copics. The Christmas paper is from W&M, which I got on Friday and couldn't wait to use!

Used some flocking around his coat and hat.  The ribbon is a beautiful tartan, also new.

This is how I went about colouring him in...


I was very fortunate to receive this lovely LOTV stamp as a gift from a dear blogfriend, as she had received a duplicate and offered it to me... As I did not have it, I happily accepted this gift.  Thanks so much Amelia.

Once again, I am using the lovely new Christmas paper from W&M.  Hope you like this combination.  My image was coloured in with Copics.  I added some Rangers Stickles around the hat and pom poms, which you can hopefully pick up in the pic below.  I just love this Nellie Snellen die too.

Well, that's my first 2 Christmas cards for this year.  I see a lot of you are busy making yours, so I'd better get cracking then.

Thanks to those who have emailed wishing Kendall a speedy recovery.  Now I'm also sitting with a scratchy throat and a sneezing nose... you just can't win, can you ? Am trying to doctor myself first with a few meds from the pharmacy... hope it helps.

Is it my imagination or are things a bit quiet in blogland these last few days ?  Appreciate all the visits I get, thanks for popping by.  Hugs Sharon

Sharon, if you don't mind I was wondering once you have your colors layed down what do you use to blend them together.
