God Jul

As I said a million times already I love the fall and today is no different even if it feels more like summer here. Had 18 degrees here yesterday. Anyway, one of the things I love about the fall is that it's getting darker and darker and then suddenly when December comes all Christmas lights goes up and lights up everywhere. I love the expectant that it creates for what's to come. All the preps for the big C. It just makes life wonderful. :)

And until my fave time of the year is here I have to settle with preparing the Christmas cards. LoL This time I have gone all in with papers and motives from Bildmålarna. The new Christmas stamps are so cute and they are a little bigger than before, at least that's how it felt when I coloured this little lady called Snow is falling.

I am back with my markers again, it takes a lot long to colour now than it used to. I am guessing that the changing of papers has something to do with that. I have always used the heavy stuff from Letraset but they don't seem to make that anymore. Grrr, best thing ever made and it goes out from the product line. I am trying to adjust to the Neenah card but we don't get along as it's so much thinner than the other stuff and I am heavy on hand when colouring. So the hunt is on for something that suits me better.

For decorating my card have I used quite a few dies, the snowflake one from Joy!, the ivy from Joanna Sheen, the basic ones from Spellbinders, the border from Magnolia. A red ribbon and bow with ribbon from WOC (who is also dropping all ribbons except lace and seambinding). The roses are also from WOC. The pearls sprays used is from Rox stamps and the gemstones from Magnolia. Charm from Bildmålarna and ordinary pearls from Bunny Zoe. Some glitter glue for some extra sparkle and a glitter pen on the image and sentiment. I think that cover it it all....

The new theme over at Passion For Promarkers this week is hosted by Eileen and it's called "Snow is falling". Our sponsor this week is Lili of the Valley with a gift voucher worth £10 for one lucky winner. Please take the time to check out what my teamies have been up to.
