I'm back and in the mood to craft !!! and get back to entering all those lovely challenges out there !! thanks again for all your get well wishes and cards its nice to know you care, thank you.
This week over at Die cut Dreams Christmas Club Challenge we have some changes so please pop over to read this weeks sad news, the theme for this weeks challenge is a Sketch by our Vikki, this is my interpretation of it.
I've used the lovely CC Designs Birgitta Santa coloured with Copic markers and added Ultra fine transparent Art institute glitter to her hat and wings , the glittered DP is from MME, the stitching I did with a Daisy D roller, for the distressed edges I used Tim Holtz old Old paper ink and my Distrezz-it-all Machine, the beautiful sparkly pink gems are by Doodlebug Designs, the sentiment stamp is by SU and last but not least the die cuts are from my shop Die cut Dreams
I have entered this card into the following challenges ;
Our creative corner challenge Decorate the corners

I have been seeing all these cards that are distressed but they are lovely bright colors, which is not usually the way I go. And they are gorgeous, so I have got to try it. Thanks for such a wonderful card to look at. Sorry your friend is leaving your group.
