First of many?

So another absent blogging week, mainly due to the fact that our household is fighting the incredibly annoying, and terribly persistent cold bug. We have an extremely efficient 'tag team' within the family, to ensure there's a continuous stream of coughing fits during the PM hours! Anyhow, I finally managed to scrape together at least one card this week, just in time for this weeks Bellarific Friday over at the Stamping Bella blog.

The challenge this week was a sketch............ I thought I'd take the opportunity and make a Christmas card, especially as I haven't started making any yet (cue the blog post title!). Also, it gave me the opportunity to ink up my new 'Mavis wearing Holly' stamp I bought a few weeks ago. So here she is, the super festive, super sparkly...........Mavis...........

I took a few shots of this card, cause I'm not sure if you can tell that I cut the front in half diagonally. Here's the inside view..............

..............and of course there is lots of sparkly glitter, glossy accents and glaze pen going on, so here's a close up of that...........

The DP's on here, are from the Imaginisce 'Cottage Christmas' line, together with red cardstock from Martha Stewart. Mavis is coloured of course, with my Prisma Copics on here as there is no 'skin' present! There's also ultra fine glitter on her dress, glossy accents on the sprigs of holly and a touch of glaze pen on her nose. A new 'Eyelet Circle' Nestie works a treat in the center there (love it!), and some red ribbon and an abundance of faux stitching, finishes the job.

She will of course be entering some other challenges, but my throat now requires some TLC.........i.e. a cup of coffee, so I'll be back later with some hopefuls.

Hope you have a 'cough, sniff, croak, sneeze' free week!
