Louie & Big Heart - DigiStamp Boutique DT

Hello everyone :o)  Hope you've all had a fabulous Christmas... sorry I haven't blogged before now, I was having a little Christmas break away from the laptop!  We've had a lovely few days, but it's probably about time to get back into the swing of things now.

So, here's a card I made for an order, using one of the adorable Louie images from DigiStamp Boutique.  I know the sentiment is a little 'unconventional', but it's what was requested!

Items Used
Digi stamp - Louie & Big Heart - DigiStamp Boutique
Papers - MME Paris & Co - MCH
Colouring - copics & flexmarkers
Spellbinders Labels 5 dies (a Christmas pressie!)
Memory Box Party Lanterns die - MCH
Viva Decor Pearl Pen in Ice White - MCH

Colours Used
Bear - E40, E41, E43
Big heart - B93, B95, B97, B99
Shadow - W1, W3, W5, W7 + blender
(bought lots of new copic colours with my Christmas money!)
Small hearts - flexmarker in Pebble Blue

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
Charisma Cardz - anything goes
Paper Makeup - anything goes with a digi
Simon Says - anything goes
Fussy & Fancy - furry friends

Things should be more or less back to normal on my blog now... we don't really do New Year so we've no special plans, might just take the kids to the cinema seen as hubby will be off.

Next year will be busy busy busy for me - one of my mum's old colleagues has taken over a gift shop, and she's going to stock my cards... eek!  Fingers crossed that'll be successful, but even if it's not, at least I'll have given it a go eh?

Hope you all have a lovely evening, I'll be popping round for a good catch up later :o)

Great card...I don't mind the sentiment...maybe she has to remind him that she is indeed lovely!!! teehee

Happy New Year...have fun at the movies.
We are throwing a party...I should be cleaning my house instead of blogging...oh well if I do a quick mop over the hardwood floors tomorow morning and a quickie swipe through the bathrooms late tomorrow afternoon, I should be good to go!
I keep telling DH the house will be sparkling if we wait till timorrow...teehee...more blogging time for me today.
