Mother Mary Christmas Card

It's time for me to post over at The Delicious Doodles Blog again. For my card this week I just had to use the new Mother Mary image - isn't she just beautiful? As soon as I saw her I knew that I wanted to use her on a couple of my Christmas cards.

It's a really simple and straight forward card that took less than 30 minutes to make. The image has been coloured with Promarkers and then die cut using Nestabilities. I have to say the image was a dream to colour and literally took five minutes (Teri does all the hardwork for you, so there's no need to worry about shading or having loads of different colours) and used the grand total of five Promarkers! Using a cocktail stick, I've added the slightest hint of sparkle around the edge of the card with gold Stickles and added odd dots of waterfall Stickles to the DP. The sentiment has been stamped and heat embossed.

Now, just in case you haven't heard something exciting is happening on the 19th November.... that's right we're launching our first challenge over at the Delicious Doodles Challenge Blog. To kick of we're having a blog hop with loads of Delicious Doodles images as prizes. So, if you haven't already become a follower of the blog, be sure to hot foot it over there so you don't miss any of the fun, especially as Teri is currently offering some super blog candy once we reach 100 followers! Also, feel free to grab this banner to help us spread the word.

Oh and just a reminder my £30 CSN voucher giveaway finishes on the 13/11, so be sure to make a comment to be in with a chance of winning.
