Feathered Friends

Here's a card that I haven't posted before and would like to enter into the new Lili Of The Valley Challenge - Lili's Little Fairies. This week they want to see your Favourite LOTV Stamp!!! This card was a last minute Christmas Card for my dad as I really wanted to use the image - isn't it gorgeous!! We love feeding the birds in our garden and so this was a big hit with all the family!!

The gorgeous paper is from Basic Grey - 'Jovial' Pad. Ribbon, Wreath Charm and Gem are from stash. The sentiment was made on computer.

I really enjoyed colouring this image. I did it just for fun and used a mixture of Copics and Spectrum Noirs. I dusted the background with ink but I can't remember what colour? Sorry! The falling snow is Liquid Pearl - Silver. The snow on ground is Kars Glitter mixed with 'Wow' White Flock. 

I would like to enter the following Challenges:-

Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 80 - 'Baby It's Cold Outside' ends 16th January 2012 
Lillies Little Fairies - Challenge 2 - 'Favourite LOTV Stamp' ends 18th January 2012

Lexi's Creations -  Challenge 56 - 'Anything Goes' ends 21st January 2012 
ABC Christmas Challenge - A is for 'Anything Christmas Goes' ends 24th January 2012

Sorry if I didn't get around to visit everyones blogs this weekend. I have been feeling a bit off and so trying to chill out. I don't think I'm very good at relaxing though !!! I need more practice ;-)

Will be back soon with a winner for my Candy!
Take Care!
