Just Christmas & Birthday Cards Challenge #15

This week over on JCBC is a fabulous sketch by Simone. I've done a Christmas card, so still keeping up with my one christmas card a week resolution.

I used SN stamp 'Hug in a Mug', coloured her with copics and sakura stadust for that little bit of sparkle. Mounted onto pearlised purple card which was embossed with CB 'Swiss Dots'. The papers were freebies from Funky Fairy. The white shimmer card was also put through the bug using 'Swiss Dots'. Added some snowflake eyelets which were coloured with peel-off pens and a sparkly purple snowflake die-cut. I've left it sentiment free for now, so I can personalise it nearer Christmas, for whoever gets it. Unfortunately I'm not able to show you the sketch, like I normally would, as my PC didn't like the file, it was a JPEG, so not sure what the problem, PC being a little so and so I suspect.

Hope everyone's had a good day, been nice and sunny here, though a bit nippy, but I believe most of the UK is in for a bit of a soaking this evening, wish it was snow, would really love some. Have a good evening all.
