Go Jingle your own bells

Happy Christmas everyone I hope you are all ready for the festivities. We have got everything we need did the last little shop yesterday so today is cleaning day. Phil never understands why us women have to gut the house and deep clean at Christmas and when we go on out holidays he asked if it was so it looked good for the burglars hahaha (possibly) So like I said in my last but one post our Christmas will be spent over at my in Laws then Boxing day it will be a quiet one at home The card I am showing you now is the one I have made for my Phil

It’s an 8x8” card and I have kept it to the same style as my other Christmas cards the paper is from Far far hill which has been distressed and inked with fired brick DI
The image is from Make it Crafty and I love his cheeky cheesy grin I printed it out with the sentiment then distressed the edges and inked with the same DI
The image was then coloured with my polychromo pencils then I made a mask to do the background using DI

I die cut the snowflakes and frantaged them then added gems for added sparkle

For the inside I used the same paper and brought the image through using him on the outer bottom corners then added a verse

And there you have my Christmas card for my wonderful hubby
Once again I hope you all have a fantastic Christmas and I will see you all very soon

I love your colouring and your shading is great. That is one thing I have a problem with. Knowing where to put it. Light source is beyond me. Just been looking back through your blog. The burning question is who won the Christmas quiz this year? Lol. Hugs Mrs A.

What a great card! Super image, flawless colouring and I love that snowflake but of course, Frantage is one of my fave embellishments to use.
