Little Friend...

I must say, Mother Nature is being so kind to us today. It is so beautiful out today, that it is so hard to believe that out in Western Canada the temperatures are so frigid! I know it is on it's way!

My mother-in-laws birthday is coming up in December, so I was quite anxious to make a card for her. We have so many birthday's just before Christmas that I find it so overwhelming at times....so today was the day to sit down and get some of my cards done! I saw that Janiel had made a beautiful card that I wanted to try out so badly. If you have not seen here creations, oh boy, are you in for a treat!

I had this stamp called Little Friend from Flower Soft that I was itching to colour up. So I used a combination of copics and prisma pencil crayons for her. I also placed lots of glitter for her hat and the snow.


This is the inside of the card that you just pull out of the pocket card. I left some room on the nestability die to write a personal message!

A couple of weeks ago I made some jingle bells from just plain jingle bells that I sprayed with cream spray paint from the local hardware store, and then once they were dry I painted them with glue and then sprinkled some glitter on them....voila...a nice little embellishment!
Thank-you for popping in for a visit! I just love to read your wonderful comments and appreciate you taking the time to come for a visit!

  15. A beautiful birthday card, Christine. Fab papers and absolutely stunning colour work. I, too, have lots of pre-Christmas birthdays but most of them are now in the bag as it were and I only have 2 more to make. Then I can get back to my Christmas cards - a task on which I am behind but not as badly as I was this time last year. Warmest wishes, Lesley
