Christmas card

How cute is this stamp? love her, she is called Gretel and she is from Swiss Pixes I managed to finish one of my (not chosen for the SS) cards I started. I was having trouble with the image then this arrived from Nikki of Zoe's Bunny's so quick again! and she is just the cutest thing I thought I could fit this nicely on the front of this card.
Practicing my colouring again I wish I was better at it, I see other crafters like Sem and they are so good at the colouring of their images but if I don't practice I will never learn lol
You can see the stickles glitter better here and I know it is expensive but it is such better quality than others I have tried. on the inside of the card I used a paper mania stamp and the glitz glitter glue not as good at the stickles but much cheaper and this was the perfect match with the front cover colours DP I used.
I may not be around a lot this week, I am picking up Grandson James today and he will be with us 'till Friday (I never get much crafting or anything much done when he is here;-) I will miss you all and the crafting but I do try to have him as much as I can. It's really important to me, so I hope you understand. I may not have the time to post but I will still have a time for a few visits and leave some comments for you. Thank you for looking. Love Dawn xx
