My first Christmas card

Hi everyone,

Hope you all had a fab weekend

Here is my card for this weeks Friday Sketchers which was another fabulous sketch, this time by the very talented Mumur .

I have used this sketch to make my very first Christmas card. I haven't been able to join in with a few challenges lately because they've had a Christmas theme and I just don't have any 'winter' things (yet!). I wasn't stamping last Christmas and haven't really thought about this year yet, so at the moment I have no winter papers or stamps or embellies.....I can feel another trip to the shops coming on!!!

Having said that I did manage to find one piece of Christmas paper in my drawer and this super hAngler image. I don't know if it was just lack of inspiration or I liked it so much, but I've gone for the same colour scheme as my previous card.....hope you don't mind!!

Here are the details.
  • Image: hAngler
  • Medium: Watercolour pens
  • Paper: hmmm?
  • Flowers, buttons and cord from stash

I had to rotate the sketch a bit as the image was too long and I definately need to add something else to it...maybe some sparkly snowflakes

Anyway, thanks for stopping by, have a super day
