It's almost here!!!

So are you all ready for the big day? I think I am - just!! Everything is bought and wrapped, and I've just finished my last card which was for my ever patient hubby. This is my last post before Christmas, so I'd like to take this opportunity to wish each and everyone of you a very Happy Christmas and New Year.

This is the card I made for hubby last night - I think I may be resembling the snowman at the moment - lol!!!

Trying to show the bling :D

The snowman has been printed onto white cardstock and then coloured with Promarkers and a blender pen before being cut out and decoupaged. I created the Let it Snow paper on the computer and then ripped it into strips, inked the edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink and then layered it up around the snowman. The sentiment was also computer generated. I doodled the hanging hearts, coloured them with Promarkers and then added dimension with Glossy Accents.

An attempt to show the dimension!!
