UNDER THE MISTLETOE

Good Morning everyone, it's a cold day here in Doncaster..but dry!  I'm busy getting ready for our trip to Germany next week, still have presents too buy....hopefully something will pop into my head before the end of the week lol!!  I'm so excited, can't wait to see my little grandson!
On to my card..it's a LOTV image called under the misletoe....isn't it adorable, I thought it would be ideal for Steven and Nicole. I just loved colouring it in, it's always the choosing of papers and design I struggle with...it amazes me how some cards just come together great...and others you struggle with..I've had a few senior moments with this one lol!! I bought the lovely gold trim from Germany on my last visit, need to buy some more.. I'm getting better with my pencils they are so easy to control ..love them!!  so tried to do the skin, don't think it looks too bad does it?  I've used red pearls in the corners and on the sentiment, and also used liquid pearls for the snow...it looks lovely in real life! Thought I would just mention, LOTV have got 10% off there lovely stamps and free postage......get yourselves over there.. before Santa has the lot lol!!!

  1. Marjorie,
    This is a stunning Christmas card. I see no sign of senior moments at all on here! :)
    The image just says it all and your choice of embellishments are so lavish and festive.
    The skin color looks stupendous...wonderfully done with your pencils. I think you've mastered them.
    Have a wonderful trip to see the kiddos and good luck with the shopping.
    Hugs to you,
