My first Christmas card



I had to start with a Bugaboo as I was having withdrawal symptoms lol!
Well, the Painter rang this morning to say he would start on Monday! He got back from holiday in Wales on Wednesday but felt tired, I ask you--- after two weeks away!! He is 60+ so no kids to run around after..... and they don't walk anywhere---- AND there was me running round like some-one mental for 3 days, trying to find paint and paper after the Range had let me down..... nothing I can do, so I had to re-arrange the carpet fitter and the fire-place fitter now both due in September----------- anyway, at least it's not life threatening lol...
On to my first Christmas card for this year, thought I had better make a start....

Cream cardstock
DCWV glitter pad papers matted on to red cardstock
Image from Bugaboo
Coloured woth Promarkers and distress ink around edges
Stella's hat and collar glittered and her slippers 3D glossed
I followed the sketch from Creative Inspirations
