I ordered some gorgeous papers and ribbon from Elaine the other week and as I was picked to be on the DT I have set about cutting into some of these absolutely stunning papers for this next card!! The papers are MME Signature Christmas range and they are utterly stunning. Some of them are embossed and glittered. I said to myself I wasn't going to do Christmas cards well into Autumn but I persuaded hubbie to go up to the loft to get down my Christmas box of crafty goodies just so I could use this paper!

I decided to follow this weeks sketch from Claudia on Friday Sketchers and have followed this weeks colour combo on Everybody Art Challenge of blue and brown.

I coloured Tilda with a mixture of copics and pencils and cut her out and mounted her on a piece of the DP. The crochet ribbon is also from Quixotic Paperie...oh and I think I am going to be using a lot of that!!
I have been inspired by the insides of Elaine's cards classy and such a tidy finished effect. So in honour of her, my card is decorated inside with her inpsiration in mind!!

Thanks for popping by! I am hoping to have just a teeny weeny bit more free time on my hands now. My youngest started nursery today and boy was he ready for it. You Mums out there will be with me on this one...I get a whole 2 hours a day to have the house to myself!! Whoop whoop!!

Back very soon,
Judy x

Stamp: Magnolia, Woodware sentiment, SU circle sentiment
Medium: copics and prismas

I bet you were the one then who bought the last pad of this gorgeous paper from Elaine ! I've had my eye on it and decided to take the plunge on Friday and it was sold out !!

Stunning card Judy, I adore it. I will just have to admire the papers from afar and stroke the PC screen !!!
