My First Crimbo Card of 2012 - Candy Canes

Hello everyone how are you all? Well I hope the weather is better for you where ever you are as it quite poop here along the North Coast yuk!!
I havn't been crafting as it was family time yesterday & I didnt bother with my laptop. I played on Call Of Duty on the xbox live & then we watched dvds, including The Expendables, I'm a huge action film addict love em. I love horrors as well but nothing ever scares me now altho I still love to watch them lol.

Anyway I am here with a card I made beginning of the week & not only is it my first crimbo card for this year but its done with one of Krista's fabulous new rubber stamps being released, that girlie is so talented!!!!
This is 'Candy Canes' & she is of course a rubber stamp & isn't she just so sweet. You can of course pre-order your stamps from My Little Darlings & also you can of course get Krista's SC digi images here.
The gorgeous 'Snowflake Corner' MB Die. I also added dots with my Cream Pearl Pen, a bit of Stardust Stickles & a MME Button.
Flowers are from WOC & I added Mei Flower sequins which I think adds a gorgeous touch.
The sentiment is from LOTV & again I've added 2 Mei Flower sequins.
Of course as always the image was coloured with Copics. I cant remember all the colours but I will tell you some............
Skin - E11 E21 E00 E000 E0000 R20
Hair - E29 E27 E23
The creamy/beige parts were E53 E50 thats all I remember sorry.
I also added small dots around the image using the pearl pen again. The corners were stamped with a LOTV stamp which I forgot I had & found last week lol.
Ok so the beautiful papers are the new MME 'All Is Bright' this pad is gorgeous & all the colours in there are gorgeous. I've also used 2 buttons from the 'All is bright' button set. I also added Whimsical Flourish die & some Enchanted Lace.

Corner scroll stamp & sentiment - LOTV
Flowers - WOC
MME Papers, MME Buttons, Lace, MB Dies, Pearl Pen, Glitter & sequins - My Crafty Heart.

Well thats it from me I started this post 3 hours ago but Ben, Megan & Payton came & I also had to cut Bens hair, they have only just gone so I thought I would quickly finish before tea lol. I am round doing my commenting I've done some but I will be round to see you all later. Thank you so much for your lovely comments & hope you all have a lovely weekend.
Toodles mmwah xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Vicky, this is gorgeous-I love all of Kristas images. I've got a few of the stamps on pre order, I don't think this is one of them, if it's not I'm going to have to get it.
Yep, our weather is pants, I'm in Hartlepool, on the headland-which nicely juts out into the sea, it's been pretty bleak!
I hate horror films, I jump constantly, I'm watching grizzly tales for gruesome kids at the mo and the last one was almost jumpy-I am that bad.
Hugs, Becky x
