Christmas Angel.

Is it Sunday again already? What a week. Sorry for the absence, but I've been feeling pretty unwell with a horrible throat/chest type of thing, then to make things worse, I got some sort of bug midweek which kept me in the bathroom for 24hrs! I won't go into the gory details, but needless to say, my crafting table has been gathering dust, whilst I've tried to recuperate.

This morning I feel a little more human, so although I still haven't found my way back to my desk, I thought I'd post a card I made a couple of weeks ago. It's the Christmas variety of course, and again using a gorgeous image from Krista Smith over at Saturated Canary.............I still have to have my regular fix of these sweeties! Krista is having a bit of a Christmas link up party at the moment, so this baby will be heading over there.

This is a first for me though as I took the plunge and coloured on Kraft card stock. Yes I know it's not exactly groundbreaking, but it's the first time I've actually gotten around to trying it.....call me a late developer! Anyhow I'm loving the softness of it, so here goes.............

I kept things pretty simple for this card, cause I just love this image, sweet and innocent, with just a touch of sparkle...........

Colouring is with my Prisma pencils today and I'll let you into a little secret...........a mistake shall we say! You see those lovely red and blue baubles? Well they were originally red and gold, to co-ordinate beautifully with the rest of the colour scheme, but this is what happens when you layer Glossy Accents over a metallic pencil crayon..........you could end up with any variety of colours, but definitely not the one you first intended!!

Papers are from My Minds Eye Lost & Found 2 Christmas, as is the sentiment stamp.

Have a lovely Sunday and hopefully I'll be back during the week with something new.
Take care

WooHoo, another awesome image Jayne. I just posted my Ivy that is Krista's and I LOVE her. I also mentioned you and how I found the images on your blog. Glad to hear you are feeling better. I hate when my craft table gets dusty, lol! I hate sitting on the couch not feeling like I wanna do anything. But your cards are gorjuss and I'm glad you're back to feeling better. Happy Holidays!!
