Sparkly pink snow queen

Hello everyone :o)

I've had Dex at home again today, as he was up all night coughing.  Thankfully he does seem to have improved as the day's gone on, so I've got everything crossed that he'll be back at school tomorrow... otherwise I'll have to drag him along to my hair appointment, and I quite like to do that on my own!

Here's today's card...

I keep saying I won't buy any more Christmas stamps - I have lots of gorgeous DT stamps and images to use, and I really don't need more, but I just couldn't resist this one... oops!  I've coloured mostly with copics again - I ordered a few more pens today, naughty naughty!  Not many, I'm just buying a few (or 10 lol) each month, and then hopefully I can get some with Christmas/ birthday money too :o) 

Items Used
Elegant Edge card blank - Craftwork Cards
Stamp - Snow Queen - LOTV
Colouring - copics & promarkers
Papers - a mix of First Edition Summer Breeze & Isabelle - MCH
Martha Stewart snowflake punch
MFT Dienamics corner die

Card Candy - Craftwork Cards

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
Joanna Sheen - cold & frosty
In The Pink - punches & dies
Glitter n Sparkle - lots of layers
Bearly Mine - pink Christmas
Crafts & Me - untraditional Christmas colours (2nd entry)

Right, no more waffling, I'm off to try and catch up with some of you!
Hope you all have a lovely evening :o)

Beautiful card Lisa - I've used those papers today too :o)
Love them! And I know what you mean about the stamps - but this is a real cutie.
I'm toying with the idea of getting Copics for Christmas too.
Hope Dex is feeling better and back at school tomorrow.
Take care

Love your card, I have those papers too, I thought they looked familiar!! She's a sweetie, I agree she's a 'must-have'. Hope Dex is feeling better so you can have your 'me-time' tomorrow at the hairdressers.

Hi Lisa

Ooooh another fabbie pink creation.. love your colouring of that gorgeous LOTV image... and your snowflakes add the perfect finishing touch!

You sound like me just buying one or two (!!) pens at a time... mind you, Cult Pens gives free postage over £10... so, well, we just have to order enough to qualify, don't we??

Thanks for joining in again at In The Pink and for your support... hope to see you here again soon!

scrappymo! said...

What a gorgeous image...and you hae done her up proud! The papers are lovely and the wee sparkle on the snow and falling snow is perfect!

Hope your little guy feels better soon. Poor little fellow.

I have that same snowflake punch and think i will have to put some card candy on my stocking wish list. it is not popular over here at all, but it sure makes a punch on those snowflakes and doesn't stick up too high to increase postage (that's the cheapskate in me...teehee).
