It's not looking a lot like Christmas...yet

Very sunny this morning. Already had a visit from our 'not resident but likes to call in', cat and the daily phone call from some one you can't understand, trying to sell you something you know you don't want...but seems to know all about your computer, and wants to know if your Sky is working okay. "No." sez me "It's not, it doesn't work at all.... seeing we don't have it, that's not really a problem!" At this point the phone usually goes dead.
This is my first Christmas card for this year... not counting the ones left over from last year. I used one of my own Snowmen digi's, (grab him while you can, he'll be in the store next week @ 99p) Coloured with Promarkers. The blue behind the snowman is a skyblue Promarker, dotted with a white gel pen for the 'snow'.
I wanted to use up some Christmas backing papers I've had for ages and never used, but couldn't really match them up with the colouring I'd already done on the snowman. So note to self, match everything up, before you start trying to put it all together. Usually things do come together, a bit of glitter there, a ribbon, some embossing, whatever, but I'm not sure it does this time. Well, I did lay out all the papers, then closed my eyes to pick them! The papers are Forever friends, 'Cosy Christmas'
I did achieve the 3D effect I wanted to do with the snowman though. I printed him out three times, a whole image, an image with no arms and then just his head, with the top part of his hat but no dangley bit and the scarf, without the fringe.
I've added a bit of micro glitter to his hat, I did try white flowerSoft but that looked too messy, wiped it off before it had time to sick! The Merry Christmas I did on the computer.
The Font is called Kingsthings Christmas and you can download it HERE. Well, that's one Christmas card done, I'll probably send this one to my brother...along with a nice green and red striped scarf! New Follower! Big ((wave)) to Gail, oops, no she's gone again... that keeps happening! I imagine some deep dark hole where all those tiny little pictures fall... That's it for now, thank you for stopping by!

  1. I am just in the mood for one of those phone calls asking about internet, computers, Sky etc. I think you could have quite a bit of fun with them at their expense, and cost them a fair bit of money at the same time. The worrying thing is that so many people are taken in by these scams and pay out a lot of money. By the way, I like your snowman, it is a lovely card.

  2. He looks fabulous Lyn...love the leaves around the image, mine is all coloured up for tomorrow...fabulous image to colour..
