I've coloured Holly with Watercolour Pens apart from skin which is Promarkers Almond and Blush. Lots of Stardust stickles on the snow and on her wings and earmuffs. I tried to capture the sparkle but as usual the camera doesn't want to show it... especially on her earmuffs!!! LOL

Well I know Christmas is truly on the way now because Santa came down our road last night with the Rotary Club... it's a big tradition here as they come every year without fail... 27 years ago when my daughter was a baby... he would come on a big Float along with all his Elves and the truck would all be decorated like a snow scene with lights and playing Carols... but each year it has dwindled down with the recession... and now poor Santa has to walk!!!!!!! and there was an Elf riding a bicycle towing a little amplifier playing carols on a tiny trailer... Aww I don't know why but it really tugs at my heartstrings! I think because it used to be so magical for my daughter when she was growing up... if I was a Millionaire... I would love to buy them a huge new truck and all the trimmings... but I suppose the best thing is that loads of people still answer the door and donate to the charity which is the main thing after all...
Ah well... off to get my cocoa before bed.... Hope you are all staying warm and snug!
Will be back very soon with another card...
Lots of Love
