Blue Christmas - Whiff Of Joy

Good evening every1 hope you all are keeping fine & dandy, well what lovely weather up here along the North Coast its been today.......can you believe it no rain, blinking 'eckythump!!
Well I'm am gonna try & keep this short.....LMAO 'TRY'. This last few days I've been in a lot of pain (cant wait for my hospital app next month) so its took me 3 days to do this card, I 've started then stopped, then started blah,blah,blah, its so hard to get any whoomph in ya when you are not well isn't it?? Anyway I've FINALLY finished my card & its a Crimbo card, now this is my 1st EVER Crimbo card, I've never made 1 before I only really started making cards this March & I've stayed clear of all the challenges that wanted crimbo, me being a scaredy cat...meoowww.......but I'm tough na, I've hardened up lol..... I'm more like a lion, roarrrrrrr, lol.
I'm just gonna show the card & shush up lol, here it is......
This is 'Melinda' the Christmas Angel & she is from the Guardian Angel collection at Whiff Of Joy. I have only just brought this last week & the stamp at the bottom I brought off Ebay a few weeks ago, I knew I would have to start getting my Crimbo stuff in!! Over at PFP this week the lovely Anja has set the theme 'Winter Blue'. Now as you know I wont miss PFP so its a case I had to do Crimbo but then I'm looking thru all my blinking billion DP's & I didn't have any Crimbo paper but didn't realise til last night....arrrggghhhhh. Ah well lucky enough I have Text Prints paper stack by DCWV & in there was the 2 papers on the easel card.....PHEW!!!!

This is the bottom. The flowers are from my stash. The snowflakes I used my small Woodware punch covered them in glue & then coated them in Diamond Dust Twinklets. The heart stamp has music notes around the outside so I got a free music sheet to try & match the theme, you will see better what I mean on the next pic..................

........its the song 'Blue Christmas' which I thought was rather apt, so I printed it out then inked it up with 'Tumbled Glass' & 'Stormy Sky' distress ink. The card that the image is on is from the Papermill, I get all my card from there, I also ran the card through my Cuttlebug in a snowflake embossing folder. The WOJ stamp, the button in the middle of the large snowflake & the snowflake charm I got from Hobbyhouse, it was actually my 1st time there & my things arrived the very next day, excellent for me as I'm inpatient lol. The WOJ stamp I also put Stickles over her wings & on the fur around her clothes. The chain & all the other bits of charms are from my jewellery making stash & the ribbon is also from my stash. The large snowflak I found an image on the internet & cut it out & then covered it in Diamond Dust again.

This is a side view, I've tried catching all the sparkle but I've not succeeded :-( hubby has gone fishing tonight for a few hours with our youngest son so I've had to take the pics....can you tell lol.
Well I think thats it, I can keep spying my jar of sweeties on this pic so I'm gonna do some more crafting whilst sucking on a sweetie lol
Be back tomorrow hopefully unless I end up lost amongst my mess that is now my craft-room.
Take care every1 & hope you all have a fabulous weekend. Thankyou so so much for visiting & leaving all your wonderful comments & I hope you like my card.

Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx - B Is For Blue - Walking In Winter Wonderland
