I have been a little busy over the past few days, happy busy though because I was searching all the blog challenges to find some to enter, and on top of that I have made two cards!! Good for me huh? The first one is for my other half, so it won't be posted just yet as his birthday isn't until 1st October. The second one is a Christmas card that I made for some of the challenges and I used an LOTV stamp 'Christmas Star'. I loved this image as soon as I saw it and picked it as part of a Candy prize from LOTV.
I have a few pics for you to look at - many thanks to my hubby for his usual help.
O Tannenbaum (Oh Christmas Tree)
When I had finished the card I realised that she is a bit squiffy - I only noticed when I looked at the snow under her feet - however my lovely hubby said she is standing on an incline, bless him.
I am still struggling with my colouring but I do keep practising and this little image is so cute, I am sure you will forgive my dodgy shading - now I've set myself off giggling because I'm doing the mole impression - squinting! If I squint and take my milk bottle bottom glasses off - hey perfecto!!
