I'm Back !!!!

Yippeeee ! I am back in the land of the living !!! hehehe !!

Thank you to all those people who have kept my spirits up by sending their good wishes and for emailing me to find out if I am still alive ! It is so lovely to know how many really good friends you have around you.

I am pleased to say that we are all better now apart from I still have my hacking cough but its slowly getting better.

I've been able to make a few simple Christmas cards (a case of having to really) and when I saw that one card I have made fits three different challenges, I decided to show my face again in blogland earlier than expected !

I think the DP I have used is DCWV but I am not sure. I bought it from my local craft shop and she said she had removed it from a pack but I forgot to ask which one !

The image is by The Greeting Farm and I just love it. It is such a pleasure to colour with my ProMarkers. I have distressed the image with a distressing tool and inked it with antique linen and brushed corduroy distress inks. I then completely covered the image with rock candy distress crackle paint (just love this stuff) and the effect is amazing. You might be able to see it better if you click on the photo.

The sentiment has been stamped onto a piece of twill and then I cut all the edges to give it a "rough" look. I was imagining it to look like a piece of cloth a Shepherd would have with him !

The snowflake is a Sizzix die which has been cut on corrugated card and I added some gold stickles to it.

The button, twine and beads are from my stash.

I can enter this card into these challenges :

Stampin for the Weekend - Red, Green and Gold

I ♥ ProMarkers - Spots (yes, there are some if you look closely !!) and stripes
