Polkadoodles - 'Delivering Gifts by Sledge'

Hello everyone it's so good to be back on my blog you have no idea.  I have been away for quite a few weeks so let me explain why.  

So back in May I stupidly managed to break my right wrist (yes I'm right handed and no there was no alcohol involved unfortunately lol).  It was a really bad break which they had to pull back into place and at one point they were talking of operating on it to which they got a very rude reply from me.  Anyway, me being me went back to work like two days later and never really rested as I was instructed to do.  I can be extremely stubborn at times much to my family's annoyance.  So to cut a long story short it has taken longer for me to get back in a place where I can craft but with help and ongoing physio I'm here chomping at the bit to get back to it.

So what better way to jump back in than to share a card I've made using such a cute image from Polkadoodles.  It's a Christmas image from the Winnie White Christmas collection called 'Delivering Gifts by Sledge' and she was a joy to colour with my copics.  The colour scheme was taken from the papers I printed off from the Polkadoodles kit 'Winnie Winterland'.  Seriously so many beautiful goodies in this kit folks.  The pretty poinsettias and foliage were printed off from the same kit.  I just cut them out a couple of times, shaped them and then layered them up for some dimension with plenty of Stickles in the centre.

Medium:  copics
Sentiment:  printed from Winnie White Christmas collection
Ribbon from stash

A bit of a closer look at the image.  So so cute and wouldn't be complete without a little sparkle which you can sort of make out in the photo.
