Christmas Carol


Christmas Eve once again, one of my favourite days of the year. We will be out early this morning for breakfast and then we are going to a carol concert in one of the large churches in the middle of Norwich. It is a fun service and features the pantomime cast. We went last year for the first time and loved it. Really set the festive mood. Just a couple of fresh foodstuffs to buy and then back home, probably to watch a festive film.

So onto my card which was my last Christmas card I made as we had a meal out with them on Monday. The couple have 3 daughters who all sing and dance so when I saw this image from All Dressed Up I had to get it. I coloured it in the girls' favourite colours, with Copics of course. The papers are MME Merry and the gorgeous little hat and mittens are Joy dies from Noor Designs UK. You can't really see the embossing on them on this card but the dies emboss at the same time as they cut, rather than having to run them through again with the embossing shim.


Here are the girls in more detail and the lovely sparkly glitter shows up well for a change.

I like how you colored each of the girls to match your friends kiddos...the extra step of thinking of their girls favorite colors is lovely. I also love the sparkle you used to ground the image. Thanks for sharing with us at Southern Girls Challenge
