Almost Traditional Christmas

This is about as close to a traditional Christmas card as I can get! It's based on the latest clean sketch from Dawny at Papertake. It's a fab sketch to work with and I know I'm going to use it again.

It's a CC Designs Snow Bunny stamp, shaded with all new shades of ProMarkers (ahem!) and a hint of Glamour Dust on her hat and boots.

The papers are Doodlebug and just for a change I popped some glitter gems on. Didn't fancy a sentiment on this one for some reason.

Sorry this is short and sweet today, my little man Zac has a temperature. After a chat with the Health Visitor this morning, we called on Grandad to come and sit with Blake whilst I nipped Zac to the Doctors to get him checked over (last time he got ill on a Friday morning he had croup). It's nothing serious thankfully, just a viral infection so lots of cuddles and fluids for him.

Fat club was great fun last night and so far so good on day one! Apologies if I don't get to visit your blog later this evening, I'll play catch up over the weekend.



  1. So sorry that Zac is poorly hope he recovers soon bless him.
    Totally love your fabulous card!
    Gorgeous image and fabulous colours and design!

  2. Give Zac a cuddle from me, hope he's better soon. I love this card, simple, straightforward and great. Like the twinkle too!
    That sentiment you asked about was free with a Creativity mag once I think, can't remember exactly when!

  3. Big cuddles to Zac from me to bless him. Another fab card, just love your card making style.
