Stocking Milly - DigiStamp Boutique DT

Hello :o)

I've used one of the new images for this month from DigiStamp Boutique... this is Stocking Milly, available HERE.  Another Christmas card for this year's too small pile.

I coloured her with copics and a touch of Prisma pencil, and lots of Glamour Dust sparkle of course.  The stitched oval die is MFT die-namics, as are the (new, very naughty) snowflake dies.  The sentiment is a Tonic die and the sequin is Doodlebug.  It doesn't show in the photo, but the sentiment and snowflakes are all covered in Novo clear sparkle pen, so they're lovely and shimmery.  The papers are another recent naughty purchase... I was actually looking for some themed papers to fit a customer's request, which I found, but also couldn't quite resist these Christmas papers!  They're from Northern Whimsy and it's the Peppermint Latte Plaid set and Peppermint Latte Coordinates... they've printed very nicely onto linen card, so I'm sure I'll be back for some more.  If you're also tempted, make sure you go to their Facebook page first, as there's a 20% discount code available if you sign up for their newsletter.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
Sketch Saturday - fab sketch
Allsorts - glitter
Crafting by Designs - get ready for Christmas
Animal Friends - Merry Christmas

We had Dex's parents evening last night, and his teacher is really pleased with him... she says his work is 'amazing' and in literacy he's already where he should be towards the end of Year 6 (he started Year 5 in Sept).  He just doesn't believe in himself enough, so we all need to work on boosting his confidence - she's giving him 'star of the week' today and he had a Deputy Head award this week for his writing.  Morgan got a 'praise letter' from his school today too, so we might have to take them roller skating or trampolining for a treat this weekend I think.

Thanks for popping in, hope you all have a lovely evening :o)
