Letters to Santa....

Oh my it is sooo cold here...the wind is just a blowing...and it 24 below O with the wind! Oh I am not enjoying this weather. Hubby and I are heading out tomorrow morning at 4 to take our daughter to the airport. She is headed to Orlando, Florida for 2 weeks! My son is in Cuba right now with his grandpa and having a great time! Oh to be somewhere warm!

I absolutely love this little image from Elisabeth Bell's Digital Gallery! It is called Letter's to Santa! I coloured her with copics and coloured a little in blue using prisma pencils! As you can maybe see in my picture...I used LOTS of glitter on her hat and the snow!

I really hope you are staying nice and warm were you are! Thank-you so much for popping in for a visit. I know this time of year everyone is so busy getting ready for Christmas!

  11. Gorgeous card Christine. That is such a sweet image. Had a quick catch up just now and loved the card with the little girl looking through the window and the one where you cut out a window. Your poor doggie looked cold. My 3 month old black Labs have enjoyed the snow but now it is gone and we are supposed to have more soon!

  12. Hi Christine. Gorgeous card. Love the colour combination and this is an adorable image and beautifully coloured. Hope your daughter enjoys her holiday in Florida and I am sure you will definitely miss her over Christmas. We have more snow forecast for this weekend but I don't think it will be as cold as your temperatures. Donna

  16. I love Elisabeth Bell and didn't know she did digis. I love this sweet card, my fave colour too. Hope you have got my Christmas card Christine. You are going to miss your daughter this Christmas I'm sure but at least she will be warm, though it has been a bit cool there too, but not as cold as Canada, that's for sure. Marianne x
