Winter Wonderland - Sing a Christmas Carol!

Hi there!

Apologies for my very quiet week - it's a busy fun time here!  I celebrated my 40th birthday on Tuesday and spent a lovely day with my mom and family.  I got very spoiled and received a wonderful gift of a computer notebook for my craft room - yay!  I can now browse all the challenges online in my craft room which I'm so thrilled about!  However, I now seem to have come crashing down with the sniffles and aches & pains!  :(

Anyhow, onto todays card which is for the Winter Wonderland challenge, hosted this week by the lovely and talented Marianne.  She has set 'Sing a Christmas Carol' as the theme this week.  I was very excited as I was able to pull out this gorgeous new Winter release RAM image from PaperWorksCo - aren't they just beautiful angels!

I decided to colour these beauties with my prismas - I've added a few new colours to my collection and was eager to try them out!  I coloured their faces with copics.  The paper is from a candy win from Lynsey and are fun bright greens and pinks!  I decided to make a very pink card for this one!  The sentiment is an old PSX one but works perfectly with this image.  Snowflakes are the MS punch with rhinestones placed in the centre.

This weeks challenge is sponsored by Pink Gem Designs so be sure to stop by and join in the fun!  These days to Christmas sure are counting down by fast!

Thanks so much for stopping by today.   I hope to use the weekend to relax and recover some energy as I head to the UK next week to celebrate my big 4-0 with family and friends on my home island of Jersey.  I appreciate all of your comments and thank you so much for taking the time to come by and leave them!
