Holy Light

Hello everyone how are you? Well I'm finally here with that Christmas card I was gonna post........I cant even remember when I said now lol. Anyway I've finally remembered to post it & its using one of my new stamps that I got the other week.

This is 'Holy Light' from the latest release at LOTV. These are all sooooooooo yummy!!!
Isn't she so darn cute!!! Of course as its a Christmas Card I had to give it lashings of Snow-Tex & Stickles ;0)

I added Tim Holtz On The Edge 'Snowflake' die thingy at the top. Covered the snowflakes in Snow-Tex then added 'Stardust' Stickles here & there.

I coloured her in Tim Holtz distress markers, I lurve seeing LOTV in distress inks, I enjoyed colouring her.
I also added stickles to her wings, her head-dress & the flame on the candle. I added Snow-Tex all around the edges as well.

The trees are from my Marianne die &.....yep they got snow covered too & I also added a couple of
 MF 'Pearls' to the bottom of each. The ribbon & lace are from my stash.

I used Marianne 'Holly Leaves' die & inked it up with Anitique Linen to match with her dress ;0) The flower is Prima & I added some sparkle to it. The corner die is a Joy Crafts die.

The papers I've had for ages & I think they are Pink Paislee. I've edged them all with Walnut distress ink & machine stitched all around them. The sentiments I cant remember where they are from, the Holiday Greeting I stamped in Brown Memento then aged the card with Pumice Stone, distressed it & layered it over some corrugated card painted with gesso.

Well I think thats it from me I saw that LOTV have a Christmas Challenge on so gonna pop it over there ;0)

Also to let you know that the uber talented Krista has released 4 new 'Fairies' in her shop here, they are so yummy. Here is one of them below...........
Sweater Socks Fairy
'Sweater Socks' Fairy, lurve this one...........but I have a HUGE addiction to socks, seriously sad I am lol but I dont care............its the simple things in life that give me pleasure lol.

Okie doke I'm away now, I'm gonna make Lime & Coconut cake today.......if you hear screaming dont worry its Ben arguing with his dad of who should have the most...........yep even though I always make 2 lol.

Thanks for stopping by my lovelies mmwah
Huge squishy hugs to all
