I did it!

I can't believe it myself, but I managed to make a Christmas card! AND it's early.... not last minute, which is usually the case for me. I was determined this year to make Christmas cards, even if it is only one! Hopefully I will manage a few more, but let me not promise anything, lol.

When I realised I needed a reasonably long thing image for this week's Bellarific Friday sketch, I was like, oooooops, I don't have such an image, what am I gonna do. I searched threw my images and stamps and eventually came across this little beauty. I was so pleased!

Santa's Birdhouse was coloured with my pencils, prismas this time, and blended with grumtine. Then cut out with nesties and placed on 3D foam. I added some glitter with my quickie glue pen, which looks really nice, but not all that visible on the pic :-( I wanted to add some ribbon, cause Christmas and ribbons go hand in hand, for me at least, but I felt the card would've been a bit too busy. I also realised I do not have a single Bella Christmas sentiment - can you believe it!!!??? I couldn't I was sure I had lost them, but no, I have never ordered any. Do I need to even mention what's gonna be in my next order??? LOL!!

I can't believe it's a week since I sat here and posted my last Bellarific Friday card, and again I am going to be late for work. But life has priorities, and on a Friday morning Bella Friday is much more important than getting to work on time, hehehe.

I can't wait for Emily's post later to see what everyone has done with this sketch of mine. And don't forget, if you didn't manage to make something in time, leave a comment you can still win some bucks!
