A blue blue Christmas !!!!

I think that was an Elvis song wasn't it but its stuck in my head now so no doubt I'll be humming it all blinking day!
Well I hope your week has been going well so far.  Not long and it will be the weekend and its half term next week so no making up of lunch boxes yeh!!! Its not a hard job but its one I really dislike daft really isnt it.  I'm hoping the weather stays fairly dry so we can have leisurely walks in the crispy leaves and go hunting for pine cones to decorate for Christmas.
Anyway, I have a Sugar Nellie card to share with you today and as the title suggests its a blue one.

Its such a sweet image and she's been coloured with copics.  Her wings have been stickled and the fur trims have been flocked again.  The two large snowflakes are a Marianne Design die and I glued and covered them in Twinlets.  The silver ones are just from stash.
A bit of a side view.  The papers are really old from a Hot off the Press pad.  I've used my Martha Stewart big border punch which has lovely scroll hearts but I've just realised I've ended up covering most of it up!

A little close up of the image and you can just see the Twinklets on the snowflakes it really adds great texture.
Challenges I would like to enter
It's my little girl's 7th birthday tomorrow so I'm off now to do some wrapping up.  We've got her a Karaoke machine as she's always singing and dancing - it remains to be seen whether that was a really good idea!!!!!!
Take care folks and catch up with you soon.
