Good morning all you lovely crafty peeps, I hope you are well. All okay in my little patch. We've got both my son's and daughter's birthdays in October out of the way (didn't time that very well did I lol!!) and now we're gearing up to Christmas here. We start getting festive quite early in our house well I do have 5 trees to get up and lots of other decorations to put out too and I think it makes the house so warm and inviting especially when it's cold and soggy outside.
Anyway, as it's Friday that can only mean it's a brand new challenge over at Polkadoodles Challenge. Now as always it's an 'anything goes' theme so it's so easy to enter, but the DT this week have a theme to follow of 'create a scene'. Well there are so many goodies to play with in the kits that I just couldn't decide what to make lol. In the end I settled on making a Christmas themed book card.
I used a pre-coloured image for the front of the book. Printed it out and used the largest die from the Polkadoodles 'elegant nest' set of dies to cut it out. I just love this set of dies they cut beautifully. I don't think there is going to be any point in putting them away they may as well just live on my craft desk they're going to get used that much!! The flower and foliage has been printed too and cut out and layered up.

Inside the book card is a little snowmen scene made using a digi printed off from the Winnie Winterland kit and coloured up with copics. Again the trees have been re-sized in word and just printed and cut out. I added a little liquid pearls for snow.

Sorry there should have been a warning at the start of my post to say it was rather picture heavy. If you are still with me thank you and I hope you liked my little creation.
Well I have a busy weekend ahead of me working tomorrow and then seeing family. I will be squeezing in some crafty time somewhere and knowing me it will be the early hours of the morning but at least that way I will have no interruptions!!
Have a lovely weekend folks.
