CES Challenges DT Card.............A Winter Ragamuffin......

Hello my lovely peeps how are you all? I'm sorry that I'm behind on my commenting again but we changed internet supplier..........HUGE darn mistake but we thought it was better value for money & now the darn thing keeps disconnecting............grrrrrrr!!!! Hubster was on phone to them for 3 hours yesterday & looks like we need an engineer come out!! Will catch up today my dear friends.

Anyway onto my card & it is of course time for CES Challenges......this week our lovely Kaylou chose the theme which is perfect for all those crimbo cards we still need to make lol...........
Here is my offering...........

Yes I've used another Saturated Canary image by the fabby Krista Smith..............I did tell ya bout my addiction didnt I??? lol.

All papers have had a snow effect using embossing powder. These papers are not christamassy but I'm being good & not buying anymore papers as I have LOADS from last year.........but Emma no longer sells them lol. Anyway to make these christmassy I stamped snowflakes on the bottom sheet of paper with versamark & heat embossed them & on the 2nd sheet I stamped a sentiment.

This beautiful image is called 'A Winter Ragamuffin'.........ner she cant be a ragamuffin she too darn pretty!!
She is of course printed onto Kraft & coloured with Prisma pencils. I added snowdrops using white enamel

Snowflakes were made using a Whimsy die & the small ones from a punch in my stash. They were all cut from vellum & heat embossed with white & silver. White Heather flower (love these) &
 blue cherry blossoms were from Wild Orchid Crafts. Added drops of enamel to everything to make it look as tho its snowed everywhere lol..........I'm wishing for a white crimbo lol, not too bad tho so Ben & Megan can still drive over lol.
Well better go now my lovelies.
See ya soon my lovelies, thank you for stopping by.
Also welcome to my new followers, thank you soooooo much for joining me hope you like what you see.
Huge huggles to all xoxoxoxox
Challenges I'm Entering...............

Wishcraft said...

Absolutely gorgeous Vicky! Love the image and your colouring on kraft is just perfect. Love how Christmassy you've made it without Christmas papers :o)

Thanks for your lovely comments... I'm glad you've found a nice dentist :o) I did find one years ago, she was so nice with me, but then she went on maternity leave and her replacement was awful - he made my fear so much worse and everything he did fell apart! I haven't been back since - that was about 8yrs ago! Lisa x
