Weekend over again? Already?

My word, this weekend has really flown by.  After my trip to the Manchester Stitch and Creative Craft show on Thursday and all the goodies I treated myself to, I thought I'd better make some room in my crafting space for them.  Tall order !!  My craft space is threatening to take over my bedroom and because it is in my bedroom I have to be very good at keeping it neat and tamed, 'cos if I didn't my husband would kkkiiilllll me : ).  He would start asking silly questions like "Why do you need all this stuff?"  Where do you begin to answer that one ladies, lol?

Anyway, I spent most of the day yesterday sorting and grouping and putting things in very sensible places and lo and behold I come to make a card today and can't find anything . . . oh how I wish the craft room fairy would come and visit me, lol !

I did manage to make a card today, eventually, but I haven't had a chance to photograph it yet so I'll save that one for later.

This is another card I made for the February Challenge at CCAYR which is fairly straightforward . . . red or pink or red and pink in homage to Valentine's Day; why not have a go, have some fun and get ahead with the Christmas card production this year !

It's an 8" x 8" card, so it's a little bit bigger than my normal cards.  The image is from Mo's Digital Pencil, and I think he is just soooo sweet.

The paper is from Dovecrafts Fancy Christmas stack and the punch used for the border is Martha Stewart Holly border.

The sentiment was made using Spellbinders Fancy Tags set which I acquired from eBay recently at a reasonable price (don't know why I don't look here first whenever I want something).

The "snowflakes" falling on Kai (that's the name of the image) is from Cosmic Shimmer and it's a chunky style glitter which IRL gives the card a real sparkle but somehow looks a bit dead in the photo, never mind ; ) .

The snowflake embellishments came on a roll from a haberdashery shop, I simply snipped them into single flakes and placed a pale pink Papermania adhesive stone in the centre.  A few more adhesive stones as holly berries and I called it a day : )     

I used Copic markers to colour as usual:

Skin: E000; E00; E02 and R20
Hat and Scarf: R00; R10
Snowsuit: R05; R17 and R23
Boots: E31; E33; C1; C3 and C5

Thanks for reading,
