I finally got round to making another Christmas card. At the start of lockdown I'd thought I'd get a good headstart but it hasn't quite gone to plan.
I think the thing I love most about card making is the colouring in and will happily spend a few hours in front of the telly with my pencils on a cutie like this :) No new stash shopping for me so this stamp is an oldie from Marianne Designs that I first used back in 2012!

Coloured with polychromos. When I coloured my green balloons I also added a hint of the pale yellow to pull the two colours together and I like how they turned out. I hadn't planned on adding the tag at the top but the obligatory dirty mark needed hiding!
- Layout from AAA Cards #163
- Addicted to CAS #183 - animal
- Retro Rubber #133 - anything goes
- As You Like It - favourite non birthday occasion - well I love making Christmas cards but I'm not in the right mood for them, so my next favourite is baby cards. All those cute images and soft colours, and of course that they're for a brand new baby!

This evening I have this cutie from Stamping Bella, she's a pleasure to colour but I always kinda struggle with her curly hair.
I also struggle with adding bling! I reckon there must be a trick somewhere on how to do it, it always takes me aaaages to decide on where mine is going!

I've spent the last few evenings in front of the telly colouring this gorgeous Penny Black stamp, it's one of my very oldest stamps and still gets inked. It was definitely a good purchase! My own tulips still have a bit of growing, they'll be another week or two yet.
Coloured with polychromos and clear bling added, plus a little bit of orange bling in the middle of that ribbon on the pot. My lovely ombre DP was a recentish purchase from the Range, before the world closed down that is!
