Girly Girl!

My goodness hasn't it gone COLD??? Have got the heaters on high out here  - the house is not a bit warm either as we've been out all day at a meeting then a presentation lunch - it takes a while for the rooms to heat up so my excuse for being out here is - it's warmer!!!

Been a few days since I last posted but have made half a dozen very quick Christmas cards for my own stash over the last couple of days......... (I am starting to get sick of myself being so smug and organised....LOL)

This card though was part of a very large commission which I happily deposited with the lady today. Sorry the photo is a bit iffy - light here has been dreadful the last couple of days!

The recipient, Molly is a little over 2 years old and loves her teddy bear! So thought one of 'Lil's little fairies' complete with Ted guarding an exciting sparkly parcel fitted perfectly!

She's cute isn't she? Love her pom pom head band and her 'wand' - do you think she's trying to turn Ted into something more exciting?!

Highlighted with promarkers and liberal doses of glittery stickles, I put a metal Christmas tree charm across the top on some pinky/lilac thread and then mounted onto silver matt card.

I added a silver die cut in the top corner and threaded some sparkly gems and beads onto silver twine. The white gauzey stuff with 'snow' on it I've had in my stash for eons as I have the lilac and silver foiled backing paper.

The sentiment was PC generated and the inside co-ordinated to match.

Thanks for looking - the last couple of weeks of meetings, typing minutes and attending Presentations combined with all the travelling is starting to catch up with me now! Am beginning to wilt a bit - so will have a quick trawl through blogland and then I think my duvet is calling! x
