Greg's Christmas Card

This will be my last post for a few days, so I'd just like to wish all my bloggy buddies a Very Happy Christmas :)
Hope Santa brings you lots of crafty loveliness ... I'm not holding my breath, but I'll be fleecing him for the January sales if not!!

As always, the last Christmas card I make every year is for Greg.  Not sure if by that time I'm well in the swing of it, or totally sick of making cards!
And yes, that's supposed to be the two of us going for a stroll through the snowy woods, awww romantic :)

This card uses a new set I got recently from Sugar Pea Designs.  I cut the antlers off one of my moose to make her into a girl (I just googled there to check, and whaddya know, that's true - I've never seen a moose in real life and wasn't entirely convinced that I hadn't just made that up LOL)  
Images coloured with watercolour pencils, and sparkle added to their scarves and to the snowflakes/heart.  Blobs of stickles also added to the trees.  Snowflake embossing folder is an oldie from Cuttlebug.

What a super card - Greg will love it! Unfortunately, Andy's card got spoiled at the last minute (a wonky sentiment) so will have to be made again from scratch. Happy Christmas hun, Jo x

Sometimes as you're looking at a blog, you click on a card, then you click on a card you see on that blog, and then you click on a card and before you know it, you are on a blog of someone you don't know, never saw on the internet before and you can't even trace your steps as to how you got there. That's what's happened here. I'm here. Don't know exactly how, but I saw this card on a challenge blog and loved it. Obviously I'm not on one of the DTs that had to leave you a comment since it's February and the challenges are long over. Hope you won with this card since it's adorable. LOVE the meese...that is plural for moose, right? Hahhahaha! Love your antler alteration. Awesome. Hugs, Gail
