Christmas Gift

Hi peeps. a bit late posting this one, but had to make it this morning as I didn’t get back from my fabulous Paralympic weekend till quite late last night. Wow what a fab weekend it has been, very emotional and inspiring, the Olympic Park was awesome and so much bigger than I thought it would be, the Gondola ride was spectacular (even though a bit scary for me, I have a real fear of heights), company was perfect but most of all the grit, determination and professionalism of everyone taking part was just uplifting.  I have never heard such a noise throughout the whole evening session, you just have to be there to understand how wonderful the atmosphere is.  The Volunteers,  Police, & Service personnel were so friendly and helpful everyone had a smile, My Grandson Owen decided to High Five everyone one in a uniform and ended up with 102 Hits each one given with a smile and friendly word.  I really didn’t want the experience to end.


For todays card I have used one of my Lili of the Valley Xmas stamps this one is called Christmas Gift and has been coloured with Copics (coloirs below).  The Backing Paper is from Frosty Christmas Pad, also from Lili of the Valley, the Poinsettias are cut with Doo Hickey Die and the Rolled Roses are made with Marianne Designs Flowers & Leaves Die, I have distressed around the edge of the image & flowers with Faded Jeans Distress Ink.


Copics used:

Blues: B23, B32, B41

Mauves: V17, V15, V12, V01, RV000

Green: YG61

Flesh: E11, E21, E00, E000

Have a good day

Huggles Jacs xxxx
