Miss Clause Christmas Card.....




This is a card I made which fits into this weeks Crafty Angels and Cupcake Challenges. I have again used Miss Clause (think she's addictive) and coloured her with Copics and a Clear Sakura Pen. The background was made with a Copic Marker and Gold Glimmer Mist. The Snowflake was cut on the MM Slice and spirtzed again with the Gold Glimmer Mist. Papers are the gorgeous Cosmo Cricket and all the other bits are from my stash. Dont think the photo picks up all the glimmer on this card as it looks so much better IRL. Loving this stamp and really enjoy making christmas cards right now, so lets hope Mr Mojo stays put for a while.


I managed to put my Paper Storage Tower together with ease. Took about 20mins for the frame and a good hour making up all 15 draws. Hoped alot of my papers would fit in but I knew 1 unit wouldn't be enough LOL.

I have Jessica off ill today and have just had a call from Daniels Boardings School to say he is under the weather, so off now for a 3hr car journey to colllect my boy. So hopefully catch up with some blogs tonight.
So much inspiration out there and I love viewing your blogs.

Great card Claire, I love Miss Clause and the papers are gorgoeous.

Hope your kids are better soon. I had a call at work today to collect Edward from school, he had had a bang on the head and was feeling dizzy. He does have a big bruise, but he seems full of beans to me, I do think sometimes schools over react a little !!!

I get an extra afternoon at home though - bonus!!!
