With Love at Christmastime

My first cute Christmas card using the gorgeous offer of the month image from
Digi Stamp Boutique.
As always she is coloured with copics.
the backing paper is a freebie from the Milton & Co christmas paper stack which came with
Papercraft Essentials magazine.
I added glue and glamour dust to her star. I might add snowtex to the snow at the bottom. am not sure at the moment!!
sentiment was taken from Kerry's gallery and blog. 

thanks for looking

Friendship swap card

This is the card I sent to Deb on the Docrafts forum Friendship swap for October.

I used a gorgeous Lily of the Valley image called Milly Flower - isn't she gorgeous.

As always she is coloured in with Copics and I used some glossy accent on the centre of the flower.
Papers are from a download - can't remember the name but I do like the purple and green combo.
wording done on the PC using Greeting Card Factory. matted onto scalloped edge circle from the Spellbinders Nestability range.
corner flourish cut from purple card stock. flower gem from stash. flowers cut from xcut punch.

thanks for looking!
