A Spoon Full of Sugar - Christmas


Here is my card for this weeks A Spoon Full of Sugar where we are asking you to simply make a Christmas card. I know.. I am horribly late for this challenge but I promise... all will be revealed tomorrow ;-)

Our wonderful sponsor this week is the very sweet Summer owner of Belles 'n Whistles. She is giving one lucky player two gorgeous stamps from her latest collection. If you are looking for a stockist of these cuties... look no further as I have Belles 'n Whistles in my store!!!

The character used on my card today is a new stamp called Christmas Mouse from Scrapmagasinet. Lisbet has a wonderful collection of new Christmas stamps on their way which are so much fun!!! I have them on pre-order singularly or you can buy the collection at a staggering 29% off!!!!

I have coloured with Prismacolor pencils using sansodor and paper stumps to blend. I also added a little stickles sparkle. The gorgeous papers are from the My Minds Eye Signature Christmas Glitter stack. These papers are expensive but are such fabulous quality... they really are worth every penny! The snowflake was punched using Martha Stewart Artic. I added a double daisy spacer and pale blue pearl to finish. The buttons are from the Noel collection.

See you tomorrow :-)

Hugs,
