Crafty Sentiments August new release week - Day 2

Good morning my lovelies and I hope you are all in fine spirits.  We have another soggy day here today and after such a beautiful and warm day yesterday too.  Seriously you can get whiplash from our good old British weather you never really know quite what you're going to wake up to!

So anyway I've popped in today as it's Crafty Sentiments Designs August new release week yay and it's a digi release this time too so instant gratification even better!!

So it's day 2 and my turn to share with you a little something and I got to play with the gorgeous 'My Little Helper'.  The theme this time is Christmas so I've actually made my first Christmas project of the year.  I saw when I was browsing a little while ago a gift card holder idea (can't remember where unfortunately) but I thought I'd have a little go at one.  These are going to be so useful for giving gift cards so I will be making a few this year I can tell you.

Medium:  copics
Papers:  First Edition 'Nordic Christmas'
Crafters Companion Kraft Card, Neenah 'Desert Storm' kraft colouring card
Ribbon, twine and bells from stash

As you can see the beauty of having a digi is you can resize it.  So here I've got it printed out quite large for the inside and then I made it really small and printed it out on the tag to.

Lastly my usual close up of the image.  I decided to use colour on kraft this time which is a first for me with copics but I love the outcome.


Face/body:  E000, E11, E00, E13
Clothes:  R14, R17, R29, W7/G24, G94, G99, W7/BG72, BG75
Hair:  E41, E43, E47, E49

Okay that's all from me today folks.  Don't forget the release is happening all week so pop over to the Crafty Sentiments Designs Inspirational blog for some lovely projects from my team mates and remember this release is digi so no waiting the images are available in the store now!!!

Take care and happy crafting.
