Noel, Noel

Hello everyone how are you all? I have scheduled this post this morning as its easier doing the post the night before when Payton is in bed lol. This morning our little Arjay will be having his operation, fingers crossed he recovers better than last time poor little fella.

The card I have today is a card I made for Natalie's taxi driver & escort, Jim & Debbie who take her day-care every day. After the fiasco of the last taxi driver who we sacked, Jim & Debbie are just fabulous & Natalie loves them both..........the cool thing is they are husband & wife. I think its fab when husband & wife work together, there is a lot that cant spend that much time together, which is a shame.
Anyway here is their card..........
I inked this stamp up a couple of weeks ago & she has been sitting on my desk waiting patiently lol. I haven't put too much foofiness on as I dont know what they like & tbh I'm just hoping they like the card.

I added a Dovecraft Wooden 'noel' word which I covered in Rock Candy stickles then added Ranger Rock Candy dry glitter over the top. The lace & ribbon is from my stash, I lurve the lush colour of the ribbon :0)

This is the inside which as always is decorated to compliment the front. Dies used are Joy Crafts

The dies added to the front are Magnolia Paris Nights (lamp-post) & the tree is Marianne Design.

The stamp is 'The Day Before Xmas Noel Tilda' from the Winter Wonderland 2013 collection. I coloured her with 'Copics' & I added White Flower Soft under her feet to mimic snow.
I didnt write the colours I used but I can tell what they are.......... ;0)
E11, E21, E00, E000, R32 - Skin
E29, E27, E23, E21 - Hair
C3, C1, C00 - Clothes
R39, R37, R35 - Boots & Noel
I also fran-taged around the image with Shabby white & 'Aged Rose'.

The gold star in the centre of the bow is from my stash & I added shabby white fran-tage to it. The gorgeous paper is Pion 'Christmas Flower', i inked the edges with Walnut distress ink & machine stitched them.

Well thats it from me its actually 2am as I'm finishing this & Natalie is just finally settling off to sleep, so hopefully we can sleep now, fingers crossed. Will be back tomorrow with my CLF DT card & I will update you on how Arjay is doing.

Thank you sooooo much for stopping by it means a lot.
Take care, big squishy hugs to all mmwah.
