Winter Friends

I have yet another Christmas card to show, but first I just wanted to share some news that I have been bursting to tell - from the challenge starting on 13th January I will be joining the Joanna Sheen DT, I'm very excited & honoured to have been invited to join their talented team and can't wait to get started!

Today's card has been made using a very cute stamp from Crafter's Companion, I have made some 'grown up' cards this year, but I'm such a sucker for cute images! I wasn't sure if I'd made these cute chappies too orange, but I think it works with the Kraft card.

Image - 'Giving' - Crafter's Companion coloured with Promarkers
Papers - 'Annabelle's Christmas' paper pack - Wild Rose Studio
'Snow' done using my 'Ice White' Viva pearl pen
Ribbon, Kraft card & candi from stash
Dies used: SB 'Circles' & 'Scalloped Circles', Marianne Designs 'Swedish Ice Star' and border cut using Martha Stewart's PATP 'Layered Arches'

  5. Love your card Nat, the image is just so cute. Your colouring is always spot on. You asked about my pinks, to be honest the pinks in PM are a bit disappointing and I have been trying to gather some colours from the limited edition sets. I recently got one set with a pink one called pink mittens and its so great for that nice baby pink. Other wise I used my blender pen a lot of lighten some shades. I got the big limited 24 set and it has some lovely shades of pink.
