On a Snowball

Well hello, I hope you are all well, for those that know me you will know that for most of my life (for one reason or another )I have had to deal with depression, well at the moment I am going through a very dark time I have tried to keep positive but finding harder and harder, I have mentioned it on face book and I speak openly on there about it but on here I try to keep things light hearted, but I feel at times people need to know the truth and that behind the bubbly posts are a lot of tears and desperation.
I do find my crafting helps but even that can sometimes be a struggle when my mood is really low. That being said I am slowly getting ahead with my Chrimbo cards so I should just about get them finished my new year (only kidding).

Today’s card is a mix of 2 of my favourite Artists Nikky Hall (Polkadoodles) and Mo Manning a wonderful combination!

The papers are from Polkadoodles as I keep saying I love love LOVE these collections (Winnie White Christmas and Festive Christmas collection) the papers are just GORGEOUS. I have used the same design as my previous card (why change what you like) I have distressed them then added some cheese cloth to the back, made some paper straws and die cut a poinsettia which I coloured with brushos (loving these).

The image is called on a snowball from Mo Manning Which I have coloured with a mix of Prisma and Polychromo pencils. I stamped the sentiment which as part of a freebie set from a magazine (think it was Card making magazine)

To finish off the card I made a matching insert and there you have it another crossed off my list yayyyyy!!!!

Happy Crafting
