Feathered Friends

Good morning and a very happy Saturday to you my lovelies.  So how are we all doing with our Christmas makes? I'm doing okay I'm happy I've made a few but I need to get cracking and now that the kiddiewinkles have gone back to school I'm hoping I can get a shift on.

I have my latest make to share with you today and yes it is a Christmas card so that's another off the list.  I've made a criss cross card this time as I haven't made this style in a while.  I used the adorable LOTV image 'Feathered Friends' and coloured it in with my copics.  I made another poinsettia and covered it with Twinklets.  This die really does make a beautiful flower but I've found to get the full effect it is best to double up the bottom layer.  I hope the piccies are clear enough for you I'm struggling to get decent shots lately it's either too gloomy or brilliant sunshine I think a light box is going on my Christmas list this year!!

Medium:  copics
Papers:  First Edition 'Festive Treats'
Dies:  Spellbinders 'Poinsettia', Spellbinders 'Floral Ovals', Spellbinders 'Fleur de Lis rectangles', Dienamics 'Royal Leaf' set, Cheery Lynn 'Holly Flourish'
Twine, ribbon, sentiment from stash

Next up my usual close-up.  This is such a sweet image and really very easy to colour.  Obviously a sprinkling of glitter made an appearance.  Well it is a Crimbo card so it would be rude not too!!

So that's all from me today folks.  I'm off to have a rummage through some stamps so I can have a play.  Not sure what I fancy colouring up so I'll see where it takes me.  I hope you all have a great weekend and manage to get a little crafty.

Take care.
