All in a Row

Hasn't this weather been beautiful, absolutely gorgeous, but it does play havock with the card making.  I want to be out in the sun all the time and not stuck indoors.  Yesterday was the last sunny and hot day of our little heatwave, so today I need to catch up with all the things I have been neglecting, a busy day then.  Lets get started, todays offering is another 8x8 card base from Craftwork Cards, I've gone with the traditional red, gold and green theme.  The red starry paper is by Paper Adventures and was bought more years ago than I care to remember, the greens however are more up to date and come from a paper pack bought last year called Henbury Lane, Poinsettia pack by Papermania. The colours all go perfectly together, very warm, cozy and Christmassy.

The stamp is from LOTV called All in a Row, it's soo cute and lovely to colour.  I used the usual suspects, aka Copics and here is the list, Clothes - Y21,23,26. YG93,95,97. R35,37,39.  E31,33,35,37.  Hair - E31,35.  YR20.  Skin - E11,11,000. R20.  Holly - G26,28. R39.  Snow and shadow W0,1,2,3. 

The die cuts are Spellbinders Large Labels, Standard Circles Large and Small.  The gorgeous corners are from Memory Box and is called Snowflake Corner, I've also used the Frosty Border and trimmed it to fit.  The sentiment is LOTV Circular Sentiments, Christmas Set Five.  I've popped on a few sticky jewels just to round off the design and give more sparkle.

I hope you like this cards, it's one of my favourites, I love the papers and the traditional colours but the stamp gives a modern look.

Have a great day.  Hugz, Janice
